Sample Shipping Method: ShipEx Customer Account

When setting up shipping methods, you can also choose to let customers charge shipping to their own courier account. Customers provide their courier account numbers during the checkout process. You notify the shipping company when the order is ready for pick-up, and the order is charged to the customer.
