The Solution by Calcurates

The Calcurates team collaborated with the client to address the challenge by taking the following steps:
  • Defining the configuration
    In response to the client's shipping requirements, the Calcurates Team suggested the following feature set: Shipping Areas, Table Rates, Flat Rate, Multi-Origin Shipping.
  • Multi-Origin Shipping
    15 origins (ship-from locations) were set by mapping them with the Shopify "Vendor" attribute values. The "merged" shipping option has been set to merge multiple shipping options that serve different Origins.
  • Shipping Options
    3 Shipping Options served different Origins were set: 2 Table Rates and 1 Flat Rate. Shipping rates are based on Shipping Areas and calculated combining "fixed rate per unit of weight" and "fixed per order" algorithms.
  • Shipping Areas
    There were 71 Shipping Areas by AUS postcodes set in order to achieve high-accurate shipping rates based on the destination address.
