Introduction to Shopify Shipping || Shopify Help Center 2019


With countless shipping options available
to ship your orders, it’s sometimes difficult to choose what’s best for your business. Shopify Shipping has everything you need to
make that decision directly from your Shopify admin. What is Shopify Shipping? Shopify Shipping provides merchants with access
to pre-negotiated shipping rates and labels with shipping carriers based on your Shopify
subscription plan. These rates are automatically available for
all merchants in the United States and Canada. Keep an eye out as Shopify adds more eligible
countries in the future. With Shopify Shipping, you get access to discounted
shipping labels without needing your own account. In the United States, you have access to USPS,
UPS, and DHL Express. In Canada, you have access to Canada Post. There are a few steps to take when using Shopify
Shipping: 1. Choose what shipping carriers you’d like to
enable at checkout with Shopify Shipping 2. Customers choose their shipping service and
speed at checkout 3. Receive payment for their order and shipping
costs 4. Fulfill the order in Shopify and print out
the corresponding shipping label and packing slip
5. Drop off the package to the carrier or schedule
a pickup Beyond discounted shipping rates and labels,
Shopify Shipping also has a suite of tools to streamline your shipping process. For example, you can purchase and send a return
label to your customer directly from your Shopify admin. US merchants also have the option to schedule
package pickups. If you purchase UPS or DHL Express labels
through Shopify Shipping, then you can schedule pickups directly from your Shopify admin. Pickups can be scheduled at your preferred
date, time, and address. You can also buy and print shipping labels
from the orders page in your Shopify admin. Use the checkboxes to select up to 20 orders
and save yourself time. To get started with Shopify Shipping, the
first thing you need to do is make sure you’ve added weights to all of your products. For example, this t-shirt has a weight value
of 0.1 lbs. As you add new products or variants, you can
add the weight individually. If you’ve already added products, use the
bulk editor tool to edit all product weight at once. Check out the link below for more details
on how to use the bulk editing tool. It’s also recommended to add any packaging
you plan to ship with. This means adding the package dimensions and
weight to the Shopify admin. You can locate these details by clicking “Settings”,
then click “Shipping”. Scroll to the “Packages” section. For full details on how to add a package,
see the link in the description below. Including both product and package weight
is important because the final shipping rates shown at checkout and when buying a label
are calculated using the weight of products and package combined. By default, the shipping rate is calculated
using your default package weight and dimensions. It’s recommended that you make any adjustments
to the default package to best suit your shipping needs. The final shipping cost also depends on how
far the package is travelling and how quickly the customer wants to receive it. For example, this checkout shows an order
with two t-shirts shipping within the United States. The shipping rates show both USPS and UPS
shipping rates with expedited options. The carriers that show at checkout, depend
on whether you’re located in Canada or the United States, and what carriers you have
enabled in your shipping settings. The shipping cost adjusts accordingly as your
customer adjust the number of items in their cart or changes the shipping address. This example now shows an international order. It’s important to note that shipping rates
are only accurate if the product weight and package weight are included. After you receive an order, you see the shipping
option your customer chose on the order details page. From your Shopify admin, click “Orders”
and open the order you’d like to see. From here, you see the shipping option selected
under “Paid”. If you’re purchasing and printing your own
shipping label, click “Create shipping label”. From here, scroll down to the shipping services
section. Here you see a banner with details on what
shipping option the customer purchased. It’s important to note that the cost may
not match exactly what was purchased by the customer. Since shipping rates at checkout are calculated
based on your default package dimensions, the label cost changes if you have a different
package selected under “Package and weight” on this page. For more videos on how to grow your business,

  1. If I chose usps, do I still need an account with USPS on stamps.com to ship items?

    After the steps in the video are taken, do I just go drop off packages? Or will I be liable to pay for shipping at the post office?

  2. Does OBERLO dropshipping need such complicated delivery process? I will not change anything but optimize the store and attract more customers.

  3. So now, I won't have a physical store front, so the return labels are still going to have my store's address, yes? So am I even making labels? I know I may need return labels… Pls advise. Thank

  4. Shopify Shipping should work in Netherlands as far i can see – my question is how to integrate or add UPS as a shipping service so customers can select as they order products from our webshop. Any guidance for that?

  5. Most of my products are dropshipped from China. I add the shipping costs to the price. How do I add shipping costs onto my webpage without it indicating 2 – 8 day shipping, when in reality the shipping could take up to 30 days to the United States?

  6. Can i use 29$ plan to use Shopify shipping method?
    I m trying to purchase 29$ plan but whenever i chose 29$ plan after some loading it again shows me to upgrade your plan of 79$, Why?
