If you will pay the shipping charges on behalf of your customer, miscellaneous charges are not updated.
If you offer free shipping to some of your customers, there will be a difference between the revenue collected for shipping charges and the invoice that you receive from the shipping carrier.
If you are using warehouse management and the Kewill ClipperShip software interface, the following additional information is updated in Microsoft Dynamics AX:
