Hello,

I have been looking to find how I can apply shipping rates per item in shopify. All of the information I have found is outdated, it seems like it should be pretty simple but I can't find how to do it. How can I do this?

Thank you in advance for the help you offer,

Liam

Hi, Liam!

Lisa here from the Shopify Support team.

To simply apply shipping rates per item in Shopify, your store does require Carrier Calculated Shipping. Currently, there is no native way to do per item shipping without this service. Enabling Carrier Calculated Shipping opens up the API's needed to allocate shipping rates per item. 

This additional service costs $20 per month, or free on annual billing - just ask the Shopify Support Staff here, and they can set it up for you!

Once you have Carrier Calculated Shipping enabled you can use the free app Parcelify where you can create custom shipping rates that perfectly suit your needs.

Alternatively, you can do this workaround, which is a lot less simple but would offer a solution to apply shipping rates per item in Shopify! 

Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any questions. 

- Lisa ?

Hi Liam,

If Parcelify doesn't work as expected in your store, our app, Intuitive Shipping allows you to easily assign per item shipping rates. We have had a few customers switch from Parcelify already, and we offer a free 14-day trial, so please feel free to take it for a test drive! 

If you need any assistance, please reach out to us via our Skype Live Chat found in the app within the app under Help > Support or you can shoot us an email at support@intuitiveshipping.com

Warm regards,

This is disappointing.  I just signed up today, and am in the process of adding multiple drop-ship suppliers for my store, some of which are out of country.  I can't tell my customers the standard shipping date estimates when I have no control over when a supplier ships the order.  In my day job, I'm a programmer, and I work with nopCommerce for my employer.  I may switch to that for my eCommerce needs, because honestly, that just seems like a standard thing an online store would support.  Having to pay extra for it is ridiculous.  I have $0 in sales, I have no idea how much I *might* sell, and I've already committed to $29/month on the off-chance that I might be successful.  Now I have to pay extra so that my checkout doesn't tell my customers 2-3 days when it might be more like 20-30?

I fear that I've made a grave mistake in giving shopify my credit card number already, and I haven't even opened my store yet.  I believe I'll spend my trial period investigating other eCommerce solutions.

Hello,

I just wanted to know if this answer regarding the shipping rate per item is still relevant today, or there is any new solutions.

Thanks.

Apparently there is a new solution though I havent tested it. But you can now do it per item based.
