The Online Store supports shipping options worldwide and also gives you the flexibility to choose your shipping provider. There are three different shipping calculations available:
- Flat rate: Set a flat shipping rate, or specify free shipping.
- Custom table: Customize your shipping costs by weight, number of items, or cart total.
- Carrier-calculated: Automatically calculate costs based on the carrier rates table.
Before setting up shipping, you will want to create destination zones. Destination zones are used for shipping rules that apply to a specific geographical area. For example, if you would like to create two different shipping rates, one for your country and one for all other countries, you need two zones, one with only your country and the other one with all other countries.
- Go to Shipping & Pickup and click Zones
- Set up Zones depending on your plans to sell internationally.
- Click Add new zone and customize the zone settings.
- Add Region, State, or Zipcode where you plan to ship.
- Once done, click Save.
You can manage shipping settings to get more precise rates. Here's how you do this:
- Go to Shipping & Pickup to the Shipping settings section and click Shipping origin information.
- Enter the address from where you will be shipping your orders.
- Click Save to confirm changes.
