Calculated shipping rates
Calculated shipping rates are shipping costs that are provided by any shipping carriers or apps that you add to your store.
When a customer reaches checkout, their cart information is sent to the shipping carrier or app, and they return what you should charge for shipping.
The benefit of carrier-calculated shipping rates is that you can pass on the exact cost of shipping an order directly to the customer.
Calculated shipping rates from shipping carriers
Depending on your store's Shopify subscription plan and location, there are certain shipping carriers you might be able to add directly to your shipping settings.
Shipping carriers can use any of the following when determining how much to charge for shipping:
- shipping origin
- shipping destination
- weight of the shipment
- value of the shipment
- dimensions of the shipment box
- dimensional weight
- requested speed of delivery
For example, suppose that a customer from Washington D.C., USA reaches the checkout with a 1 kg order. Your store is located in Ottawa, Canada and your default box size is 5" x 7" x 7" weighing 0.375 kg. If you connect your Shopify account with Canada Post, then Canada Post calculates the possible shipping options for your customer based on the order criteria, and provides them at checkout for the customer to choose from.
Calculated shipping rates from apps
Apps can also provide calculated rates if the carrier that you ship through uses an app to integrate with Shopify, or you need a more advanced shipping setup.
We also offer local pick up and delivery which can be chosen at check out!
If your business offers delivery, then you can create a local delivery method for your customers to choose at checkout. You can set a delivery fee and minimum order amount.
Specify the availability of your delivery by listing postal codes or choosing a radius around your business location. If a customer's address has a listed postal code or is within the radius that you set, then they will have the option to choose local delivery as a shipping option at checkout.
You can give your customers the option to come to your business to pick up their order. This is a good way to let customers save on shipping costs, and lets you create a more branded experience for your customers. You can provide pickup instructions and let customers know when they can expect their order to be available.
