What Is Shipping Method in Shopify?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 1:36 pm

When you create a shipping method in Shopify, you can specify the name, rate, and delivery time for the shipping method. You can also specify the countries that the shipping method applies to, and whether the shipping method is available to customers at checkout.

To create a shipping method:

1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Shipping. 2. In the Shipping zones section, click Add shipping zone. 3. Enter a Zone name and select the countries that you want to ship to in the zone. 4. Click Save. 5. In the Shipping methods section, click Add shipping method.

6. In the Add a new shipping method dialog, enter a Method name and Rate. 7. Under Delivery time, enter the Estimated delivery time for this shipping method. This is optional but recommended so that your customers know when to expect their order. 8. Select which countries in the zone this shipping method applies to from the Applies to drop-down menu.. All selected countries must be in the same region as the country specified in your store’s Address information
9. If you want this shipping method to be available at checkout, then check the box next to Available at checkout. By default, all shipping methods are unavailable at checkout.
10. When you’re finished, click Save.

PRO TIP: Please be aware that the “Shipping Method” in Shopify is not a shipping company or service. It is simply a term used to describe the method in which your products will be shipped to your customers. You will need to set up your own shipping account with a shipping company or service in order to fulfill orders placed through your Shopify store.
