how do I automatically apply a default shipping method to OPC?
THis is because the quote object is cleaned when moving to the OPC. All the “extimated” items are removed for the customer to select the correct details again. If you have more than one shipping method defined then what one do you want selected? - Is this always the lowest cost?
