Delivery rates with Rapidus

Offer free deliveries or a lower delivery rate to entice your customers
Pass the cost of delivery to the customer (recommended)
Earn more by charging a higher delivery rate than Rapidus
To offer free deliveries or if you want to calculate the rates yourself, disable Rapidus rates. You will then control the rates from Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery > Rates page.
To pass the cost of delivery to the customer, enable Rapidus delivery rates and give the rate a name.
