Create a Shipping Scenario

Shipping Scenarios allow you to assign conditions that will determine which shipping methods are available to customers based on a custom set of criteria.

If the conditions are not satisfied, the shipping methods within the scenario will not be available to the customer at checkout.

Add A Shipping Scenario

1) Click the Shipping menu button, then select Scenarios from the drop-down list.

2) Click the Add Shipping Scenario Button.

3) Under General Settings, set Visibility to On.

When Visibility is set to Off, all Shipping Methods within the Scenario will be hidden from your customers.

4) Enter a Title for your Shipping Scenario – e.g. ‘Express Shipping’.

Shipping Scenario Titles are not visible to customers, so name them something that keeps you organized.

Assign Conditions (Optional)

Conditions are not required. If your Scenario has no rule-based requirements, skip to Add A Shipping Method.

1) Select a Condition Match to choose which Conditions must be met. You can choose ‘All’, ‘Any’ or ‘None’.

2) Select a Product Filtering option to choose which products are included in the shipping calculation based on the Conditions.

3) Choose whether or not Products with Custom Shipping Charges are included.

4) Click the Add Another Condition button to add custom Conditions.

5) Set your Condition type and value.

6) To add more Conditions, click the Add Another Condition button and set the values for each.

To delete a Condition, click the Trash Can button to the right of the Condition.

Add a Shipping Method

1) Add a Shipping Method for each Shipping Zone – e.g. ‘USA’.

Shipping Zones are set up in your Shopify Settings. To learn how to adjust your Shipping Zones, click here.

Add More Shipping Scenarios

To add more Shipping scenarios, repeat the steps above to Add A Shipping Scenario.

Or, if you want to create a new Shipping Scenario that is similar to an existing one, you can easily duplicate a Shipping Scenario, then make minor adjustments as needed:

1) Click the Shipping menu button, then select Scenarios from the drop-down list.

2) Click on a Shipping Scenario you want to use as a template.

3) Click the Duplicate button.

Clicking the Duplicate button automatically brings you to the new duplicated version of the Shipping Scenario.

4) Change the Title, then make other changes as needed.

Making changes to the duplicate Shipping Scenario will not change or overwrite the original Shipping Scenario used to make the duplicate.

Save Your Settings

Click the Save button!

Nicely Done!
You just created a Shipping Scenario!
