Offering Freight Shipping Options for Your Quick Shopping Cart Customers
Enable FreightCenter.com as a shipping method if you sell items that must ship via freight carrier or bulk items that ship via pallet.

When you link your FreightCenter.com account to Quick Shopping Cart you can provide customers with real-time rates from the supported freight carriers you select. Weight determines rates and freight items must be marked as such in the product settings.
