  I'm not 100% clear on what you mean by the following:


Can you please clarify that a little?

As far creating the Order and Order details table automatically, this will happen if:
1) You Create a database connection
2) In the checkout wizard, on the Store Order Summary page, you select the option to "Crate using Preset".  



Hi Jason, I know how to add Add to Cart items manually. I guess my question is more about process:
If I create a catalog page with multiple static inventories and use the Add to Cart buttons manually, there is no database connection on that page. Watching the video for eCart 5 overview, it says that the Orders DB will be created by eCart. I am assuming 2 is an alternate process? And not an answer to my question about shipping optioins?


To clarify, I have a client who may be shipping via UPS or common carrier. The products have a certain weight and dimension, which I can add manually to the eCart interface first and then to each item as I add it to inventory. But I guess I'm asking what data should I be adding to prepare it for the automatic shipping calculations with UPS? Do I really just need a total dimensions in inches rather than h w d separately? Is that the same for other shippers? And WHEN/WHERE in the set up process do you add this shipping charge to the final order? It said in the video it is a new feature but there isn't anything in the getting started docs that talks about it.
