Modified on: Wed, 25 Aug, 2021 at 4:42 PM
Before you start selling your products with Shopify, you need to set up the shipping option for your products so your customers can actually receive them. In this article, we will show you in a few simple steps how to get this done.
Step 1 - Enabling Cloudprinter.com shipping methods for your order
Open the Cloudprinter.com application on the Apps and go to the Settings tab. Press the Enable button next to Cloudprinter.com shipping methods.
Step 2 - Setting up shipping profiles and rates
2.1 Go to Settings and open Shipping and delivery.
2.2 Press Create a new profile at the Custom shipping rates for products.
2.3 Here you can set up a shipping option for chosen types of products:
Fill in the name field, add products to this profile, set up shipping - choose the areas of shipping and rates for them. Then press the Add rate button on the bottom left.
2.4 On the next step, you can set your own rates or choose the carrier rate.
Fill in the Rate name field and set the price for this shipping profile. Press Done and after that - Save.
2.5 Cloudprinter.com products should be set the same way, but when setting up the rate you should choose Use carrier or app to calculate rates and shipping rates will be provided by the Cloudprinter.com app.
Step 3 - Choose contact methods
Our Integrated postal carriers use the provided email address and phone number to contact customers for any questions about the delivery. The email and phone number of the end customer are mandatory.
3.1 Go to your shop settings and open Checkout.
3.2 In the Customer contact section set: Customers can only check out using email.
3.3 Find the Form options section and set the Shipping address phone number to Required.
When these settings are set in place, the end customer can order the products, in case of multiple orders, the order will be divided into separate parcels and the shipping price will be calculated automatically (the rate you have set + the shipping cost by Cloudprinter.com integrated carriers).
