You can offer free shipping or charge for shipping depending on the order price or weight.

Only add your domestic shipping rates into Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery. International rates should be set up in a separate zone in Shopify shipping and delivery settings.

Our latest rates feature allows merchants to use Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery rates without needing access to Shopify carrier-calculated shipping. Contact us on chat so we could update your store to use the newest version.

If you are using a subscriptions app alongside Zapiet, you will need to remain on the carrier-calculated shipping version due to Shopify limitations.

Only proceed with this article if, because of the limitations of our newest rates feature, you need to use our rates with the carrier-calculated shipping.

For more information on migrating your existing rates, take a look at our rates setup guide.


Requirements

  • You need to have the carrier-calculated shipping enabled on your Shopify plan.
    You can read more about this in our Shopify carrier-calculated shipping guide.
    If the carrier-calculated shipping is not available on your plan, you can check out our rates functionality article for alternative options.

  • All products that require shipping need to be marked as a Physical product in Shopify.

You have now added your domestic shipping rates into Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery, and can test them out.


Price based rates

Price-based rates depend upon the customers' order total price. You can use them to offer different shipping rates or free shipping over a certain price.

  1. Click Add rate.

  2. Add a rate name.

  3. Set minimum and maximum order prices for this rate.

  4. Set the price for the rate.
    You can either tick Free shipping rate or add a rate amount.

  5. Click Create.

  6. Repeat until you have created all rates and click Save.
    If you have a minimum order total for shipping, you can also use conditional activation to set this rule (for example, you only offer shipping over €10).

You have now created your shipping rates, and they will show in the checkout.


Weight based rates

Weight-based rates depend upon the customers' order total weight. You can use them to offer different shipping rates or free shipping for a certain weight range.

  1. Click Add rate.

  2. Add a rate name.

  3. Set the minimum and maximum weight for this rate.

  4. Set the price for the rate.
    You can either tick Free shipping rate or add a rate amount.

  5. Click Create.

  6. Repeat until you have created all rates and click Save.
    If you have a minimum or maximum order total weight for shipping, you can also use conditional activation to set this rule (for example no shipping for orders over 20KG).

You have now created your shipping rates, and they will show in the checkout.


Add international shipping rates

If you ship internationally, go to Shopify Settings > Shipping and delivery > General profile. Add a separate, international shipping zone and add your shipping rates there.

For more information, check out the Setting up shipping rates guide by Shopify.


Limitations

  • You cannot create negative rates.
    If you want to create discounts for shipping, please check out our Shipping discount code article.

  • If you are using price-based rates, Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery calculates the shipping rate based on the order total before any discounts have been applied.

    This is because the post-discount cart total is not available via the Shopify carrier-calculated shipping—it is a Shopify limitation.
