Set up shipping

For shop owners and customers, every shipping problem has a solution. After all, the responsibility of business owners is not only limited to purchasing and selling products, but also to ensure that these products can be delivered to customers. Setting up shipping can be a complicated process that requires consideration of product weight, packaging cost, shipping destination, carrier rate and potential profit per order, and other variables.

Most major courier companies provide online shipping calculators. You need to roughly understand how much your business will cost to transport internationally or domestically.

Set up shipping zone

You can implement your shipping strategy under "Shipping setting". Here, you need to create a shipping zone first. Here you can set the shipping rate to customers in certain countries.

The rate of each zone can only be set in the same way.
