      Really nice blog - I really think that it's a great walk through of the setup.

      I have one question though - in bullet 5 (and 7) - the partner function text column (2. column) says "Ship to location" - shouldn't that be "Primary Location" - or am I getting something wrong?

      You are right . Description should be "Primary Location" in those steps.
