Shipping Class Match
If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names Lulu Xpress uses, they won't know what methods you intend for them to use. When this happens, the default mail class applied above will be used instead for all of your orders.
To tell Lulu Xpress what methods you want them to use, you will need to match your method names to theirs. This can be done in the shipping class match section. For detailed instructions on setting this up, please read through the shipping class match guide.
