At the end it will give you a summary of what it has done. This is useful for testing the function until you get comfortable with it.
    2. Automatic - This will scan your orders before you print them with DAZzle and change to the least expensive shipping method (Media or BPM). This is turned on in Configure->Postage Settings->DAZzle Options in the Other Options section. No prompts are displayed.
    Both modes will check that ALL the items in an order are books. If not it will just ignore the order and leave as is. Also, it will only change orders that are already marked for Media or BPM.
