Step 4. Navigate to Settings > Misc > Package Types to create the different packaging options for boxing various wine orders (i.e., 3-bottle, 6-bottle, 12-bottle packaging). For complete setup instructions, please see the Package Types Documentation >

Step 5. Update your shipping types by going to Store > Shipping > Choose your shipping strategy > Manager Shipping Types, then change the code field to be the corresponding shipping Canada Post type codes from Easy Ship Codes here >
