    For example, If any customer chooses your rate quotes as shipping method while checking out then the shipment will proceed automatically via this Automation.
    You don’t need to apply the tags.
    Note: – This functionality will only work if the Rate Quote is set as “Yes”
    Please check the screenshot below for your reference –

Go to Setting > Shopify Account > Shipper Set-Up –
In Shopify, we have a feature where you can add Shipper Details that will get printed on the packing slips for the particular orders.
