If you’re mailing orders out to your customers, you’re gonna want to charge shipping on your products. There isn’t a way to automatically calculate shipping, so you’ll need to set these costs up manually. Here’s how!
Select the country you want to set costs for here - your home country is the best place to start. After that, want to ship only to certain countries? Pick only those you’ll ship to and enter costs for ‘em. Want to ship everywhere else? Choose Everywhere else from the menu and add your costs.
This is the cost customers pay if they only order that one item. If there’s more than one item in the order, the highest “shipped alone” cost in the order is applied, plus:
This is the add-on cost for each other item in the order. In general, you may want to make this cost lower so you don’t overcharge customers, or you can set it to $0 for flat-rate shipping.
For example: you sell a print for $6 shipped alone and $3 with others, and a tee for $5 shipped alone and $2 with others. Someone orders one print and two tees, so they’d be charged $6 + $2 + $2 for a total of $10 shipping.
Not sure how much to charge?
Measure and weigh the types of packages you plan to send out and plug those details in to your shipping carrier’s estimate calculator - like USPS, UPS, or FedEx. It may take some adjusting to get right at first, but you can always come back to edit anytime!
Save some time
If you’re creating new product listings and don’t want to enter the same shipping costs over and over by hand, you can use the copy product feature in any listing to quickly add a new product with the same settings.
