Carriers are the companies who actually deliver the product to your customer. These can be big companies such as UPS or FedEx, or smaller ones that you contract to locally. Adding a carrier to your PrestaShop 1.5 store is important for getting your item to your customers. You can have many different carriers that may be delivering your products. Once you have decided on which carriers you wish to use, you will need to add them to your store. Follow along below and learn how to do just that.
