Shopify Site with Clean Canvas Theme
We are trying to setup custom shipping options on our baked goods website and have been struggling a bit. Hopefully there's someone here who can help us.
We are planning to have 2 menus...Local Delivery Menu & Shipping Menu.
Local Delivery menu - products available for local delivery only to 6-8 zip codes in the area
Shipping menu - products that can be shipped anywhere in the US
We would like our shopping cart to be intuitive to do the following:
If Zip code entered by customer equals any of our delivery zip codes, then it calculates Delivery Charge 1, 2 or 3 based on Cart Total $$ [Free for cart total over $20; $0.99 for cart total over $10; $1.99 for cart total less than $10]
If Zip code entered by customer does not equal any of our delivery zip codes, but is in our State (CO), then it calculates and provides Shipping Charge 1 or 2 based on # of items in our cart [1 Item: $5.99; 2 or more items: $5.99 + $2.99 x # of items - 1]
If Zip code entered by customer is in the Rest of United States, then it calculates and provides Shipping Charge 1 or 2 based on # of items in our cart [1 Item: $8.99; 2 or more items: $8.99 + $4.99 x # of items - 1]
Just off the top of my head, there are two apps that might help (I'm not very sure, but will be worthwhile to check them out):
Also, since you do local delivery plus nationwide shipping, you might get some pointers from this Shopify site: Sift Cupcakes
You will most likely contract a developer to setup your own rate service. You get complete control and it sounds from your description like you need that. A one-size fits all App probably won't work for you. The challenge in your case is checking zip codes and reacting appropriately. There are some nice geolocation helpers out there, so it is most likely a project undertaken with low risk of failure and high probability of success.
In case you're interested in saving on your shipping costs, I can recommend Shippo. Here's the link to the Shopify app: https://apps.shopify.com/shippo. You can simply charge your customer a flatrate and use Shippo to calculate your shipping costs (discounts for USPS). That has helped me to save shipping costs.
Hi Subhash !
I wonder if you finally hired someone to develop this for your store? was it possible to be coded? did it took very long?
We just have two delivery areas. A first group of zip codes with delivery price $10, and a 2nd group of zipcodes with delivery price $20.
We feel it is a little to much to pay $30 dollars/monthly for the better shipping App to only have this simple thing enabled.
So, we are considering hiring a developer... do you have any advice on this for us?
Thanks a lot.
Can someone help me or point me in the right direct?
We ship aggregates/soil/dirt in a few local cities around us. I would like to be able to set a shipping price besd on the product and city or postal code where it is being deleiverd. Ive tried several shipping apps but it doesnt seem they work for us.
Your help is greatly appreciated
