To update shipping groups for multiple products in Magento by mass-updating the attribute for Shipping Group, you must have Magento admin panel access and you must have the Shipping Group created and synced in ShipperHQ.

Steps

  1. Navigate to Catalog > Manage Products.
  2. Select any applicable products that you would like to update the shipping group for.
  3. Click the actions dropdown for a list of options.
