Custom shipping method title

By default, each method you add to a zone will use the title that is returned by the carrier service's API. 

You can modify this title in three ways. Changing the title by using a custom title, and appending or prepending text to the title. 

To enable customization to a method's title, check the Customize Title box on the method edit page. 

Custom Title

This is used to completely replace the title provided by the carrier. So if the method title is UPS Second Day Air, you can provide a different title for it, like UPS 2-Day.

Prepend Text

Prepend text is used to place text before the method's title.

So if the method title is UPS Ground

And you add Ships via as the prepend text. 

The method will appear as Ships via UPS Ground. 

Append Text

Append text is used to place text after the method's title.

So if the method title is UPS Ground

And you add - Signature Required as the prepend text. 

The method will appear as UPS Ground - Signature Required. 

Use custom titles to save multiple versions of the same method

You can use the customize title feature to offer modified versions of the same method for each group/zone. 

Example:

You want to offer two options for UPS Worldwide

  1. UPS Worldwide where customer pays customs and duties on arrival
  2. UPS Worldwide where you include customs and duties in the shipping price

In this case you add two versions of the same UPS Worldwide method to the group/zone. 

  1. Don't add custom and duties charges, and you don't customize the title. 
  2. Add customs and duties charges, and prepend plus Customs and Duties to the method title. 

If you try to save a the same method for a second time, the app will show an error instructing you to customize the title. 

You can add as many versions of the same method to a group/zone as long as each one has a unique custom title, prepended or appended text.
