Hello Community,

we have listed DHL as first and only shipping option to a foreign country. Now, we would like to list a second shipping option to the very same country, but with a second shipping option. However, this shall rather be a home-made shipping option, none of the standard carriers.

At the moment, we do not find any option in the standard setting which allows to list a second shipping option like this. We also do not find any app which enables the shop to offer white-label shipping option?

Any idea how we could offer a white-label shipping option besides DHL in our shop?

Regards,

Udo

If you have the unlimited or higher plan with Shopify, or ask nicely and pay extra, you can have access to the Carrier Shipping API that allows you to present your own Shipping Options. Adding your own shipping rate is straightforward. I have done this for more than a few stores that need it.

Hello HunkyBill,

Thanks for the response. We have the highest plan with Shopify. But where can we find the access to the "Carrier Shipping API" in our backend? Can we add an own shipping option via few clicks or do we need the change lines of codes somewhere?

At the end of the day, we just want to offer to shipping option with different prices per kilogram to the very same country.

Regards,

Udo

With the API, you can register a callback in an App, and then that App is responsible for returning the correct shipping options. There is no interface in Shopify for this. You need to install your own App to deal with this.

Where do I get this "own App"?

How do we get access to the required API?

If i understood you in entirety, do you have your own set of rates which you want to show to a specific region. Do you have set of tabular rates? If that is the case, you can use the multi Carrier Shipping label app to define your own set of rates and display multiple shipping options at checkout.
