Zone Wise Shipping/new method/ more advanced fine-tuning
You need to navigate to Vendor Dashboard→Settings→Shipping.
From here, you can add shipping methods by clicking on Edit or Add Shipping Method.
NOTE: Set shipping preferences only for the shipping zones where you send your items.
If you do not work with some geographic area, do not enter any settings into it.
The list of all geographic areas (countries) to which you entered the shipping settings will be listed on the page of each of your products.
A new page will open.
From here vendors can choose to limit zone location for his customers and also add new shipping methods.
To add shipping methods, vendors need to click on Add Shipping Method and select one from the drop-down.
In this way, you can add unlimited shipping methods. By hovering over the shipping method, you can edit and delete. And the toggle button can be used to enable/disable a shipping method.
You can also limit zone location using postcodes that apply to customers purchasing from that zone.
Also, you can set your own shipping policy and shipping processing time for the customers. Just simply click on the policy settings tab at the top of the page to manage the shipping policy settings.
NOTE: The shipping policy applies to your entire store, meaning it will be shown on the page of each of your products.
If you have a different shipping policy for different products from your store, we recommend that you do not specify a general shipping policy, but specify the delivery conditions for each product separately in the product description.
Each Shipping Zone can have different (and multiple) Flat Rates if you wish.
1. To make changes to a shipping method, you need to click Edit.
2. You can change the Title if you want to or keep it as default. This title displays to customers at checkout.
3. Next you have to add the Cost (this is applied to the entire cart).
4. Select your Tax Status (define whether or not tax is applied to the shipping amount).
5. You can also type a Description for this method if you prefer.
5. Click on Save Settings.
Shipping classes won’t apply unless you specify from Edit Product.
In your dashboard, you will find 4 shipping classes (small items, medium-sized items, large items, and precious items).
You can specify shipping class costs for all the shipping classes that admins have created. You will be able to access these classes for the Flat Rate method only.
You can specify your own conditional rates for the shipping classes.
Then select the cost when no shipping class will apply.
You can also select the Calculation Type:
- Per Class: Shipping rates will apply accordingly class-wise.
- Per Order: Shipping rates will apply to the total order cost, and the most expensive shipping class rate will apply.
Configuring Product-wise shipping class
- Navigate to Vendor Dashboard→Products.
- Select the product you want to add shipping class to by hovering on the product name and click on Edit.
- Scroll down to the section that reads Shipping and Tax.
4. First enable the checkbox “This Product Requires Shipping”.
5. Next, input the details as required for weight, length, width, and height.
6. Now select the shipping class you want to apply to this product from the drop-down.
7. Select Tax Status and Tax Class.
8. Click on Save Product.
Note: Each product can have only one shipping class.
The rule is if the Flat Rate and Shipping Class rate both are defined, then both will apply when the customer is checking out.
For example, if you have set Flat Rate at $10, and Precious Items Shipping Class Cost at $10*[qty], and your customer select 1 gold bracelet, then your shipping cost will be $10+$10* = $20.
Note: You must set the shipping class for this particular product from Vendor Dashboard→Products→Edit→Shipping and Tax so it works.
In Local Pickup, customers can pick up the order themselves from a designated location.
1. To make changes, hover over the shipping method and click on Edit.

3. Enter Cost – Cost for the option, is applied to entire cart.
4. Select Tax Status. Then click on Save Changes.
