How to enable AbanteCart shipping modules

If your store is selling physical items that need to be delivered to customers through the post or via a courier, you will need to enable the AbanteCart shipping module.

FedEx, UPS, Royal Mail and USPS are included, while Canada Post and Purolator can be integrated as AbanteCart Marketplace Extensions.
