How To Create A New Shipping Zone

Shipping Zones are determined by your Shopify settings. Here’s how to create a new Shipping Zone.

Add A Shipping Zone

  • Click on Shopify Settings at the bottom of the sidebar menu.
  • In the Settings menu, click on Shipping.

If you are setting up Shipping Zones for specific provinces or states, follow the steps below to Remove Provinces or States From An Existing Shipping Zone.

Otherwise, skip ahead to Create A New Shipping Zone.

Remove Provinces or States From An Existing Shipping Zone

  • Under Shipping Zones, click Edit beside the Shipping Zone with the provinces or states you wish to remove.
  • Under Countries and regions, click Edit beside the country or region with the provinces or states you wish to remove
  • In the Edit states/territories pop-up box, remove the check mark beside the Provinces or States you wish to remove.
  • Click the Done button at the bottom of the pop-up box.
  • Click the Save button.

Create A New Shipping Zone

  • Click ‘Shipping’ at the top of the page to return to the main Shipping settings page.
  • In the Shipping Zones section, click Add shipping zone.
  • Enter a Zone name.

Shipping Zone names are not visible to your customers. We recommend naming your Zone after the province, state or region it will cover – e.g. ‘Northeast’.

  • In the Countries and regions section, click the Manage button.
  • Search the country or region for your new Shipping Zone, then add a check mark beside it.

Save Your Settings

  • Click the Save button in the pop-up box!

If you are setting up a Shipping Zone for specific provinces or states, your new Shipping Zone will include only the provinces or states you removed earlier in this process.

  • In the Add Shipping Zone page, click the Save button.

Sync You Shopify Settings

  • Click Apps on the sidebar menu, then click on Intuitive Shipping in your Apps list to return to the App.
  • Click the Settings menu button.
  • Under Resync Your Shopify Settings, click the Sync button beside Shipping Zones.

Your new Shipping Zone is now available in Intuitive Shipping, but is not connected to any Shipping Methods in your Shipping Scenarios.

Syncing will take a few seconds to occur. You can leave the Settings page while syncing is in progress.

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

Add A Shipping Method

You can Add A New Shipping Method to your new Shipping Zone. Or, if you are not making any changes to the Shipping Method, you can Copy An Existing Shipping Method.

Add a Shipping Method using one of the following options.

Option 1: Add A New Shipping Method

Use this option if you are adding a unique Shipping Method.

  • Click on the Shipping Scenario you wish to update with your new Shipping Zone.
  • Under Shipping Methods, click Add a Shipping Method beside your new Shipping Zone and complete the new Shipping Method setup.

Option 2: Copy An Existing Shipping Method

Use this option if you are not making changes to an existing Shipping Method, or if you are making very minor changes – e.g. changing Domestic Rates to International Rates.

  • Click on the Shipping Scenario you wish to update with your new Shipping Zone.
  • Click the Copy button beside existing Shipping Method you wish to copy.
  • Click the new Shipping Zone to copy the existing Shipping Method to that Zone.
  • If you wish to make minor changes to the Shipping Method, click on the Shipping Method you just added to the new Shipping Zone and make any desired changes. Be sure to save your changes!

Save Your Settings

  • Click the Save button!
Nice Job!

You’ve just created a new Shipping Zone!
