The shipping terms module allows you to add or modify the terms by which shipping charges are paid. For example, by the "Recipient" or a "Third Party". These terms are especially important for use with Shipping service integrations to ensure that the correct terms are applied in your shipping software.

List View

Shipping terms may be sorted on Name and Description by clicking the filter heading. You may filter for shipping terms that match specific criteria by typing a value in the text field or selecting an option from the drop-down list. Clicking the Clear Filters button will clear your search. Any filters that are applied in list view will carry over to the List Navigator on the profile page.
Quick Action
  • Delete Shipping Term - Remove the shipping term record from the list view and archive the record in LOCATE. This action cannot be undone from the list view.
