Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3

This topic explains how to set up shipping charges for customer orders that are created in retail stores. There are three main steps to setting up shipping charges:

  • Set up the charges codes that specify which ledger accounts are used to post shipping charges.

  • Select the charges code for the shipping charge that your store charges to ship a customer’s order.

  • Set up the auto charges that specify the actual amounts that you charge for each shipping method that your store offers.

  1. Click Retail essentials > Financials > Setup > Charges > Charge codes.

  2. Click New, and then, in the Charges code field, enter a code.

  3. Enter a description for the charges code. Then, if the charge is subject to sales tax, select a tax in the Item sales tax group field.

  4. Select the Prorate check box to prorate shipping charges across invoices.

  5. On the Posting FastTab, set up and view details about the debit and credit accounts for the charges code.

  1. Click Retail essentials > Channels > Setup > Retail parameters.

  2. Click Customer orders, and then, in the Charge codes group, in the Shipping charge code field, select a charges code.

  1. Click Retail essentials > Financials > Setup > Charges > Auto charges.

  2. Click New, and then, in the Account code field, enter a code.

  3. In the Mode of delivery code field, select Table, and then, in the Mode of delivery relation field, select a mode of delivery.

    For example, your store might offer “Next-day air” or “Standard ground” shipping.
