I'm trying to setup a delivery method and it's forcing me to select an associated product. Perhaps I'm not understanding what delivery methods are.

Let's say I want to add FedEx, UPS, and USPS as delivery methods. On each sales order they should be able to select the method they want, regardless of what products are in the order.

What I'm thinking is maybe it's trying to force an association in case a certain product requires a specific method of delivery. Like I sell sheds and require FedEx for all shed sales because they're so big.

I don't have anything like this, however, so I just want to create the delivery methods and let the salesperson choose.

The product is needed so the charge for the delivery can be properly recorded (showing on an invoice as a line item - adding the delivery 'product' to the invoice)

You can use the same product for all methods if you wish to keep things simple.

I see that now. Thanks. It's for flat price shipping and so that's where I wasn't understanding the flow.
