Amazon Ship By Region Template

Amazon's Ship By Region templates enables sellers to offer different shipping rates per state. These new shipping settings gives merchants much greater flexibility with shipping options. For example, a merchant can offer 2 day shipping in one state or region, but not in the rest of North America.  Whereas previously shipping overrides were used to override account level settings, the new Amazon shipping allows you to create up to twenty shipping  templates. The templates are assigned on the product level.  Read more here.
