Last Update 3 maanden geleden

Checkout the video tutorial below.

Shipping rates can be added to each shipping zone that we have added in our Shopify store settings.

Any zone which is not added in the Shopify shipping zone cannot be seen here.

The shipping rates are added based on the conditions given in the conditions segment of the scenario page.

Click on any zone within the Shipping rates section and let's see the various ways we can customize our shipping rates.

Here I am going to set the rates for the "domestic" shipping zone. Once we click on "Add shipping rates", it navigates to a page to set our shipping rates which has four segments.

• General

• Shipping rates

• Modify Shipping rate

• Combine Shipping rates

Shipping Rate Name - Specify a name here which will be seen at the checkout page. Here it is "Standard shipping".

Status - Choose if this zone has to be enabled or disabled.

Delivery time range (optional) - Indicate the estimated time of delivery in days.

Description(Optional) - This can be seen below the shipping method name at checkout.

Notes(Optional) - Add comments here for internal reference.

Refer image below to see how the checkout page looks.

The condition segment let's us create a scenario as to when the condition has to be applied.

There are 3 different scenarios to apply a condition.

All conditions should match - Select this when all the conditions given in this segment should match while calculating the shipping rates.

Any condition should match - Select this if it is enough for any one condition to match while calculating the shipping rates.

None of the conditions should match- Select this if none of the conditions should match while calculating the shipping rates.

Refer the image below as a sample to set conditions

Here, we have chosen that "All conditions must match". So in this case, if the car quantity is greater than equals to 1, the shipping rates will be seen on the checkout page.

From the previous section, we know that there are different categories that we can use to set our conditions for a scenario.

Each condition can be set based on Cart, Product, or Customer.

Cart based scenario

You can select from a variety of criteria and factors when it comes to establishing conditions for shipping rates with a cart-based system.

Select the criteria and choose if it has to be equals, not equals, lesser than equals, greater than equals, or between.

1. Total -Depends on the total cost of the items in the customer's cart.

2. Quantity- Set different shipping rates based on the total number of items in the customer's cart.

Product-based conditional shipping rates, allows you to tailor shipping charges to particular product attributes or categories.
