ShipperHQ allows you to view shipping options and costs from multiple carriers before choosing a shipping method. Use the ShipperHQ integration to manage shipping rates and options. ShipperHQ is used for managing outbound freight only.
The ShipperHQ integration requires Inform version 24.
A product must have a weight added on the Product Purchasing tab to be eligible for ShipperHQ rates and options.
