How to Setup Shipping Formula on Shopify Store

Shipping is undoubtedly a significant thing to do business especially cross-border business. How to set up shipping is an important part. The article is trying to introduce how to set up shipping formula in a Shopify store.

Shipping checklist
The shipping checklist in Shopify was taken here:
1. Set up your shipping rates and methods
2. Add product weighs
3. Choose your preferred package type
4. Get free package material
5. Print a test shipping label

Initial Setup
Before you can start shipping your products, you need to add some information about your business on the Shipping page in your Shopify admin.

To find the Shipping settings page:

From your Shopify admin, click Settings, and then click Shipping.
On the following part:

Add a shipping origin address

If you ship your products from somewhere other than your store’s main office, you can specify a separate shipping origin to make sure your taxes and calculated shipping rates are correct.

Note:
If you’re tracking inventory at multiple locations, then these steps don’t apply. Instead, your store address is used as the shipping origin, which is used when calculating shipping rates and creating shipping labels.

Desktop steps:
1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Shipping.
2. In the Shipping origin section, click Edit address:

3.  Enter the address of the location where you ship your products from, and then click Save:

Change the shipping origin

Note
These steps apply only if you are using multiple locations.

After you enable multiple locations, your shipping rates are calculated based on the location that is set as the shipping origin.

You can set any of your active locations to be the shipping origin. However, apps and deactivated locations can’t be set as the shipping origin.

If you change the shipping origin to a location where a carrier isn’t supported, then the rates for that carrier are hidden at the checkout. For example, if you set the shipping origin to a location that is in the United States, then Canada Post rates aren’t displayed at the checkout.

Rates for buying shipping labels from the Shopify admin are calculated based on the fulfillment location, not the shipping origin.

Desktop steps:
1. Go to Settings > Shipping.
2.  In the Shipping from the section, click Change shipping origin.
3. Select a location, and then click Save.

Add a package type

Note:
If your store is outside of the United States and Canada, then you can add only one preferred package type.

If your store is in the United States or Canada, then you can save the dimensions and weights of your preferred package types on the Shipping settings page in your Shopify admin.

Desktop steps:
1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Shipping.
2. In the Packages section, click Add package:

3. In the dialog, enter the required information about the package type:

Some mail types have restrictions on the size of the packages that you can use to ship your products. A notice about applicable size restrictions will appear on the dialog when you create a new package type.
(Tip: If your store is based in the United States, then you can add USPS flat rate packaging.)

4. Click Add package.
(Note Advertised box dimensions may refer to the inside of the packaging, so it’s important to measure the outside dimensions of your boxes.)

Edit or delete a package type

You can edit or delete an existing package type by clicking on its name in the Packages section.

Desktop steps:
1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Shipping.
2. In the Packages section, click Edit next to the package type that you want to edit:

3. In the dialog, enter your changes and then click Save, or click Delete package:

Next steps
Before you can start shipping your customers orders, you need to:

The regions and countries that you ship to are known as shipping zones. Each shipping zone includes shipping rates that apply to customers whose addresses are within that zone. You can see your current shipping zones and shipping rates on the Shipping page in your Shopify admin. If a customer enters a shipping address that’s in a region outside your shipping zones, then they’ll be informed that no shipping rate is available for their area.

After you’ve set up shipping zones for where you want to ship your products, you can choose the methods you’ll use to get your customers’ orders to them. You can offer several shipping methods for a zone so your customers can choose from a range of delivery speeds and costs at checkout:

  • Create price-based or weight-based shipping rates for regular postage services.
  • If your store’s on the Advanced Shopify plan or higher, then you can offer calculated shipping rates from USPS, Canada Post, FedEx, UPS, and other carriers using your own credentials. Calculated rates are available on all plans if you use Shopify Shipping.
  • Choose from available fulfillment and drop shipping services that will ship your orders for you.
