Understanding Promail Custom Shipping Method Codes
If your fulfillment house is using the Promail integration then it's important to read this section.
The first thing to understand about the Promail integration is that many fulfillment houses use their software. There is no standard set of codes. Your fulfillment house will need to give you their codes in order to properly configure the integration.
The value you enter into the "Custom Shipping Method Code" field goes over to Promail in their "order.shipping.shippingOption.description" field.
The second thing to understand is that it's critical that you test sending test over orders with these codes before trying to take live traffic!
