Carrier service methods for each ship option

For the carrier service methods associated with each ship option, you can refer to the service methods listed in the Shipium Console. You'll select Configurable Ship Options from the Configure menu. Within the Configurable Ship Options landing page, you'll see a list of ship options by columns Type and Name. Toggling the Type column switches the list from configured ship options to Shipium's default ship options.

For each Shipium default ship option, you can use the toggle next to the service methods in the Service Methods column to view each carrier service method associated with the ship option.

FAQ

Q: Can I include a desired delivery date (DDD) in addition to passing a ship option when using the all-in-one shipment and label method?

A: Yes. For example, shipOption: standard, desiredDeliveryDate: 2023-11-15 limits the carrier selection search to only those methods that are marked as standard and for which the DDD of 2023-11-15 can be met. If the DDD of 2023-11-15 cannot be met, Shipium will return the cheapest service method on 2023-11-16, and so on.
