Shipping Profiles

Currently in Beta

Shipping profiles is the first phase of the overall improvements we’re making to the existing shipping feature. You can find the shipping profiles on the Account page of the admin, and you can toggle them on and off– so you can switch back and forth between the current shipping setup and the new shipping profiles.

📦📦📦 One rate fits all

With shipping profiles enabled, any shipping settings you have on your individual product listings will be overridden with the zone shipping profiles. So if you have the same shipping rates for all of your products, you can create a single shipping profile that’ll apply to all your products, instead of editing each product listing individually.

🇺🇸🇬🇧🇦🇺 Set your destination

hero-shipping-beta-profile-region Shipping profiles can be created based on zones, so if you want one shipping rate for the entire U.S., then you can do that! If you need to get more granular and have more than one shipping rate for the U.S., then you can set up different rates for each shipping zone within the U.S. Or you can go broad, and set up a single shipping rate for all of North America.

Keep in mind that we’ll take the most specific shipping profile when calculating shipping. So for example, if you’ve got one shipping profile set up for the E.U. and another set up for the rest of the world, then all customers within the E.U. will be charged your E.U. rate. Customers outside the E.U. will then be charged your worldwide rate.

📫📦📬 Add Shipping Methods

Some customers want their package rushed, while others are okay with standard shipping. No problem! Shipping methods can be added and customized based on your store’s shipping needs. There’s a set of default shipping methods you can use as is: hero-shipping-methods

Example shipping methods

  • Standard
  • Expedited
  • Customer Pickup

Or you can change it up, and create your own custom shipping methods. Looking to offer a 2-day shipping option for customers? Do it! You can use this feature’s customizable fields to set the price of a 2-day delivery, and specify when customers can expect their package. When you’ve added your methods customers will see their shipping options during checkout!
