Marketplace Best Practices

Shipping Charges

There is a best practice to use when creating your requisition that will include known shipping charges. Rather than create a separate line item in your requisition as a “shipping charge”, please follow these steps:

  1. After clicking on “Proceed to Checkout,” click on the “Shipping & Handling Charges” tab
  2. Click on the “edit” button below the unit price
  3. Select “override” from the drop-down box
  4. Enter the shipping amount and hit “save”
  5. Click the “Summary” tab to return to the PR
  6. You are free to create your requisition when ready
