Volusion Shipping Methods

StarShip can store a list of possible values for Volusion Shipping Methods, which you can set up to translate to values for the Carrier-Service field in StarShip. This allows your Shipping Method to be imported with the Order. You can also set up values for the International Carrier-Service field.

StarShip does not automatically retrieve the Shipping Methods from Volusion so you will need to add them if you want StarShip to translate your Volusion Shipping Method values into StarShip Carrier-Service values.


If you don’t set up Value Translations for your Shipping Methods, StarShip will attempt to use default keywords to translate the imported Shipping Methods.

Volusion Shipping Options

In Volusion, the shipping methods are set up from Dashboard > 4: Set up payments and shipping > Set up your shipping options.
