Set the primary location - If you operate at several locations, one can be designated as your primary location using the Change Primary Location menu at the top of the Locations control window. The primary location is the default "ship from location" for your integrated shipping methods. The default ship from location can be overridden for retail/B2C sites in Sites > [site name] > Settings > General Info tab in the Shopping Cart section. For B2B sites, it can be overridden in Sites > [site name] > Settings > General Info > Shopping Cart > Location. If you fail to set a valid primary location, you will likely have issues with any integrated shipping methods - such as FedEx or UPS.
Managing multiple locations - If you are entering multiple print locations, you will be able to filter Orders based on which Location they are assigned to. The location you set as primary will be used for calculating shipping costs when using FedEx, UPS, etc. Shipping costs will use the postal code associated with the primary location as the "ship from" origin. The primary can be overridden on a site by site basis. For retail/B2C sites, it is overridden in Sites > [site name] > Settings > General Info tab in the Shopping Cart section. For B2B sites, it can be overridden in Sites > [site name] > Settings > General Info > Shopping Cart > Location.
Without a Location, any Store you create will have problems in the Shipping area of Checkout.
