Weight ranges

Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery is precise when it comes to weight. If you already use weight-based rates in Shopify, you will probably need to edit the weight range of these rates before you bring them into Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery.

Let’s say you have 2 weight ranges in Shopify:

  • 0 lbs – 5 lbs - $10

  • 6 lbs – 10 lbs - $20

To put these rates into Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery, you will need to close the gap between 5 and 6 lbs with two decimals. Your weight range will then be:

  • 0 lbs – 5.99 lbs - $10

  • 6 lbs – 10 lbs - $20
