Shipping Options per Product

To enable shipping cost estimation by an integrated system, like UPS, every product in an order or a quote should have the shipping information. This information combined with the shipping origin and destination address helps the integrated system calculate the shipping cost with acceptable accuracy.

Sample shipping information in the product details:
