Enabling International Shipping with Quick Shopping Cart

If you ship products to customers outside of the United States, you must enable International Shipping for your Quick Shopping Cart® storefront. However, to ensure that your international orders are shipped and processed successfully, it is important to make sure all settings are correct, including those for the product, shipping carrier, payment method, and tax.

Note: We currently support shipping merchandise to locations within the United States and U.S. territories, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands. Additionally, Quick Shopping Cart supports shipping to many international locations.

Enabling International Shipping

For the international shipping options to display in your site settings, you must enable it in your Storefront Preferences.

To Enable International Shipping

  1. Log in to your Quick Shopping Cart account.
  2. From the Set Up menu, in the Business Information section, click Store Preferences.
  3. From the Checkout – Shipping Rules tab, go to International Shipping section, and then select the countries outside the U.S. to which you ship. Click a country in the Available area and click >> to move it into the Selected area. Hold ctrl when clicking (command on a Mac) to select multiple countries.

By default, all products support shipping to countries in the Selected column. If you do not want a particular product to ship to a country in the Selected column, specify the international shipping options on the product page for that product. See “Setting International Shipping Options Per Product” below.
