Your store's shipping strategy will largely depend on the warehouse location from which you will ship out the goods ordered from your store to the buyers. In real life, the location of such a warehouse may not be the same as the company address you have specified in your store profile. Therefore, if you want shipping cost estimation at your online store to be more or less accurate, you will need a way to specify the actual location from which your customers' orders will be shipped.
X-Cart allows you to specify such a location (i.e., the origin address for your store's shipments) via the Ship-From Address page in your X-Cart store's Admin area. To access this page:
Go to Store setup > Shipping.
Select the Ship-From Address tab.
On the Ship-From Address page, you will find the "Use your company address as your ship-from address" toggle.
By default, this toggle is enabled. So X-Cart treats the company address in your store profile as your ship-from address.
If you need to specify a different address as an origin for your shipments, switch off the toggle. When you do this, the form will expand to enter the required origin address.
Complete the address fields and click Submit at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
The address will be saved.
