The following information describes how to set preferred shipping methods and carriers when making bulk bookings. This could be setting a preferred shipping option or preferred carrier and shipping option if you have more than one carrier enabled in the app. Most common setting is the preference to bulk book with the carrier/option selected by the customer in checkout. For merchants offering flat rate or free shipping in the checkout these preferences can be set in the app. The preferences form the basis of the initial quotes in the bulk booking preview, however these can be changed in the preview page (see below) before making the bulk booking.
In the Top Menu of the app, under Settings, you will find Bulkbooking Settings as per the following screenshot, on this page you can see all the carriers you have available in the app, and should select a preferred carrier for default rate selection. From here you will then go on to set the preferred shipping option within that carrier.
