Shopify Multi-Origin Shipping Rates for Utopia Home CALCURATES CASE STUDIES
Utopia Home is an Australian owned retail business that specializes in furniture and décor. They are dedicated to helping people create the home of their dreams by offering ideas, inspiration, and quality products sourced from Australian wholesalers.
Set different shipping costs depending on Australian destination postcodes and the origins address as products are shipped from different vendors
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.
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.
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.
There were 71 Shipping Areas by AUS postcodes set in order to achieve high-accurate shipping rates based on the destination address.
QA before going live
Thorough testing of shipping rates was conducted prior to bringing the Calcurates configuration into the live Shopify store.
