Shipping options

You can add shipping fees by using our Shipping options app and you can add as many shipping methods as you like. The app is designed to allow you to add shipping options for example your local post service, a courier service and other methods as well.



Adding a shipping option
First of all you need to name your shipping option. Simply fill in the name field with the desired name (for ex. DHL 1-3 days or United States Postal Service 3-5 days, etc)

Select where you wish to ship. You have two options to choose from:
– in the whole world – will list all the countries in the checkout page
– in the following countries – you can select the desired countries and only these will be listed on the checkout page

Select what kind of shipping rate you offer. You can select from two options. Your first option is to offer a flat shipping rate, which will charge one standard price for all purchases made in your shop with this specific shipping option.

Your second option is to offer weight based shipping rate. This option calculates the shipping fees based on the total weight of all products in the order. For this, you need to set up the weight ranges. The first interval will range from 0 and the amount that you set. To cap this range you will need to add a new range. To do this click the “Add weight range” button. You can freely decide which unit you wish to use, g, kg or lbs. Whichever unit you choose, make sure you use them consistently. Make sure that you add weight for every product in your store as well!!

For example, the below weight range is up to 5g/kg/lbs and the shipping for orders in this interval cost $5. Orders between 5-10g/kg/lbs costs $15 and orders between 10-20g/kg/lbs cost $25.

For orders that weigh more than the maximum weight range (20 g/kg/lbs in our example) you can

1. Use flat shipping price for orders over the maximum weight
In our example we can set that orders weighing more than 20 g/kg/lbs will cost $30. If the total weight of the order is 23 g/kg/lb, the shipping fee will be $30.

2. Set price for every additional 1 g/kg/lbs
In our example we set this price of $2 for every additional 1 g/kg/lbs and the order total is 23 g/kg/lbs so the price will be $31. For the first 20 g/kg/lbs the shipping price is $25 and $6 for the extra 3 g/kg/lbs weight (3g/kg/lbs x $2=$6), therefore the final shipping cost is $31 ($25 plus $6)

Make sure that you Save the shipping option. Now you are ready to ship.
