Migrating your shipping rates
To prevent your shipping rates from been displayed to your pickup and delivery customers you must migrate your domestic shipping rates from Shopify into Store Pickup + Delivery.
Only migrate your domestic shipping rates not international rates
- Open Store Pickup + Delivery and click Rates
- Click Add shipping zone (Not able to access the rates page?)
- Enter a name for your Zone
- Click Add countries and select your country
- Now add your weight and price based shipping rates
Removing your shipping rates from Shopify
Once you have migrated all of your domestic shipping rates into Store Pickup + Delivery you should delete them from your Shopify shipping settings.
Do not to delete your domestic shipping zone, only remove the rates from the zone.
Enabling the carrier service
This step should be automatic with no action required, although it's always worth double checking that your store is configured correctly.
- Within Shopify click Settings and then Shipping
- Click Manage rates
- Check Store Pickup + Delivery is listed within your domestic shipping zones Calculated rates section
- If you do not see Store Pickup + Delivery click Add rate
- Click Use carrier or app to calculate rates
- Select Store Pickup + Delivery and click Done
- Save your settings
Configure your curbside pickup and delivery rates
Once you have finished migrating your shipping rates it's important to configure your pickup and delivery rates. These will be configured within the Store Pickup + Delivery rates page.
Remove any pickup or delivery rates you have setup within Shopify's shipping settings.
Also we suggest you disable Shopify's basic local pickup and delivery options, as these are not recommended for use simultaneously with Store Pickup + Delivery.
Read these important notes
When using our rates feature you will notice a new line property added to your orders called the ZapietId. This is an integral part of how our rates feature works. Due to technical limitations of Shopify we can not automatically remove this once an order has been placed. The ZapietId is not visible to your customers.
FedEx, USP, DBD and other couriers
If you are using a third party courier to generate rates they must also be migrated into Store Pickup + Delivery. You can do this via the Advanced options button. Please note you will not be able to use Shopify's discounted shipping rates.
Facebook, Instagram and other channels
If you are selling on a third party channel such as Facebook or Instagram please ensure that you have enabled Fallback rates for shipping. In-store pickup and local delivery is not currently available for 3rd party sales channels.
