On client orders, you will have access to the carriers your client has connected in their ShipStation account.
You will not manage the client’s carrier credentials; rather once you connect to the client, you get access to use their carrier accounts on their specific orders only.
By using your clients carrier accounts to print labels, the shipping costs will be charged directly to the client's carrier account. This will positively impact your cashflow and save you time invoicing, reconciling and tracking down postage reimbursements.
This feature is optional. You can instead use your own carrier accounts for client orders.
Remove Client Carrier Accounts
If you do not think you will use a carrier account, you can remove it by going to
Settings > Carriers. Go to the Other Carriers section and click the to the right of the carrier. Then, select Delete Carrier.
