How To Set Custom Shipping Prices By Product

Do you have products in your store that always have special shipping rates? Perhaps you have promo t-shirts that always ship for free to certain Shipping Zones. Or maybe you have a select group of products that always have special freight charges. With Intuitive Shipping, you can easily apply custom prices to any of your products and their variants.

Add Custom Prices For Any Quantity

This setup is ideal if you want to charge the same custom price for each unit of the same product – e.g. if the custom shipping price is $5.00 and the customer orders 3 units, they’ll be charged $15.00 for shipping. For alternative ways to set custom pricing, go to Alternative Custom Pricing Options.

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Products from the drop-down list.
  • Click on the Product that requires custom pricing.
  • In the Shipping Zone Settings section, add the custom price – e.g. ‘5.00‘ ($5.00) under both Custom Shipping First Quantity and Custom Shipping Additional Quantity beside each Shipping Zone the Product will ship to. If custom prices are not required for every Shipping Zone, leave blank as required.

Grayed out numbers displayed in the price fields prior to adding your custom prices are placeholders for example only. They are not actual values.

  • If the Product has Variants, and the custom pricing will also be applied to all of the variants, click Show Variants.
  • For each Variant, add the custom price under both Custom Shipping First Quantity and Custom Shipping Additional Quantity beside each Shipping Zone the Product will ship to. If custom prices are not required for every Shipping Zone, leave blank as required.

Save Your Settings

  • Click the Save button!

Alternative Custom Pricing Options

You can use the fields for Custom Shipping First Quantity and Custom Shipping Additional Quantity to manage alternative shipping strategies.

Always Free

  • If you always want the product to have free shipping regardless of quantity, enter 0 (or 0.00) under the ‘First Quantity’ field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s). You can leave ‘Additional Quantity’ blank or enter 0.
  • If there are Variants, click ‘Show Variants’, then for each Variant, enter 0 (or 0.00) under the ‘First Quantity’ field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s). You can leave ‘Additional Quantity’ blank or enter 0.

First Item Is Free, Charge For Additional Items

  • If you want the first item to be free, then charge $5.00 to ship each additional item, enter 0 (or 0.00) under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 5.00 under the ‘Additional Quantity field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s). This means your customer will be charged a $5.00 shipping rate per additional item – e.g. if the customer orders 3 shirts, their shipping cost will be $10.00.
  • If there are Variants, click ‘Show Variants’, then for each Variant, enter 0 (or 0.00) under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 5.00 under the ‘Additional Quantity’ field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s).

Charge For the First Item, Additional Items Are Free

  • If you want to charge $5.00 for the first item, then offer free shipping for each additional item, enter 5.00 under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 0 under the ‘Additional Quantity field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s). This means your customer will be charged a $5.00 shipping rate whether they order one or twenty one shirts.
  • If there are Variants, click ‘Show Variants’, then for each Variant, enter 5.00 under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 0 under the ‘Additional Quantity’ field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s).

Charge Different Custom Prices For First and Additional Items

  • If you want to charge $5.00 for the first item, then charge $7.50 for each additional item, enter 5.00 under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 7.50 under the ‘Additional Quantity field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s). This means your customer will be charged a $5.00 shipping rate if they order one shirt, $12.50 if they order two shirts, $20.00 if they order 3 shirts, etc.
  • If there are Variants, click ‘Show Variants’, then for each Variant, enter 5.00 under the ‘First Quantity’ field and enter 7.50 under the ‘Additional Quantity’ field beside the applicable Shipping Zone(s).

To create more than two levels of custom pricing based on products, you will need to create a Custom Shipping Method with a rate table based on product quantity.
