While it offers flexibility, Shopify shipping services is also an easy system to deal with. You can buy carriers services and print shipping labels as well as track shipments all from the tool, although it is restricted on location. However, for anyone shipping out of the US, Canada, Australia, UK, France, Italy or Spain, you gain access to the discounted rates Shopify has negotiated with specific carriers.
Shopify shipping apps integrate into your checkout process and make your Shopify experience better for customers. With options for local delivery, flat rate shipping, calculated shipping rates and international shipping
, it provides access to the choices your Shopify customers need.
To get your Shopify shipping services up and running, just follow these simple steps once logged into your Shopify account:
- Add your current location, or locations where you will ship from.
- Create some default packages for your Shopify store
- Enter the shipping weight of each product on your Shopify store
- Set up your printer for the labels
- Create shipping zones for your Shopify shipping services
With all that in place, as orders come in from your Shopify customers, you will print out shipping labels generated by the tool, pack each order and the appropriate shipping carrier will collect from you or your shipping location.
It is a very streamlined solution for your online store and can be a real help whether you are just starting out or have an established Shopify presence.
