Create a Shipping Scenario

Shipping Scenarios allow you to customize shipping costs based on weight, quantity, distance or checkout total.

Or you can pull in live carrier rates and add custom conditions or price adjustments.

Add A Shipping Scenario

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Shipping Scenarios from the drop-down list.
  • Click the Add Shipping Scenario Button.
  • Under General Settings, set Visibility to On.

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

  • 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)

  • Select a Condition Match to choose which Conditions must be met. You can choose ‘Any’, ‘All’ or ‘None’.
  • Select a Product Filtering option to choose which products are included in the shipping calculation based on the Conditions.
  • Choose whether or not Products with Custom Shipping Charges are included.
  • Click the Add Another Condition button to add custom Conditions.
  • Set your Condition value.
  • 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

  • Add a Shipping Method for each Shipping Zone – e.g. ‘United States’.

Shipping Zones are determined by your Shopify Settings. To learn how to adjust your Shipping Zones, click here.

Add More Shipping Scenarios

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:

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Shipping Scenarios from the drop-down list.
  • Click on an existing Shipping Scenario
  • Click the Duplicate button.

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

  • Change the Title and 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!
