I would like my customer to be able to pick the shipping method they prefer.

To allow your customers to choose their preferred method, the cart makes use of the Approved Shipping Methods list.

To ensure that this method is used, each "Add to Cart" button will need to be configured to use the "PROMPT" shipping method.

If you already have existing buttons, you can simply change the shipping method in the HTML, or, if you think it would be easier, you could simply build new buttons.

If you are creating new buttons then you can simply select "Customer decides during checkout" for the "Ship Method" in the "Add Cart" code Button Builder.

Alternatively, you can override the shipping method specified in the "Add to Cart" buttons, by using Shipping Prompt Override:
  1. Go to the Cart Settings section of the cart.
  2. Click on "Advanced Settings".
  3. Find the setting entitled, "Shipping Prompt Override".
  4. Select "Override ALL Shipping Methods".
  5. Click "Save".
Customers will be given the choice of methods from your list of Approved Methods.
