User Guide | Admin Item Shipping Functions

Admin functions are available from the flexi cart admin library and are primarily used to manage data within flexi carts database tables.

Many of the functions perform CRUD functionality returning SELECT queries and running INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements.
The CRUD functions are automatically joined to other related tables and allow custom statements to be run, with minimal configuration required.
