Work To and Ship To Basics

The Work/Ship Method help topic will cover setting up, editing, deleting, and inactivating different shipping methods, you use to send products to your customers. These are also the same methods used by your vendors.


Use this form to create a shipping method list of all the different ways you ship product to your customers or your vendors use to ship things to you. Once your list is complete, you will be able to select a shipping method from this list when you write an invoice, sales receipt, or other forms that use this information.

You may also use this feature to create a “sales method” list. An example might be “Walk-in Sale” or “Internet Sale”.
