HI @IamLLIIME,

If you're open to using a third-party solution, Intuitive Shipping lets you calculate shipping based on distance. You can set up a shipping Scenario with a distance condition (distance is less than/equal to or more than/equal to) so that any shipping methods in the Scenario only trigger if the Condition is met. Alternatively, you can add a custom shipping method to any Scenario that calculates shipping based on distance. For example, you can set up a rate table that looks like this:

Up to 5 km - $0.00

Up to 10 km - $15.00

Up to 50 km - $30.00

Over 50 km - $45.00

You can even add a 'per km' rate - e.g. $2.00 per km.

Full transparency: when using Intuitive Shipping to calculate distance-based rates, you will need to set up a Google API and add credentials to the app. Google requires that you set up a billing account to create your API, however they give you sufficient free credits monthly that you won't actually incur any costs from Google unless you plan to exceed approximately 35,000 distance-based rate calculations per month.

If you would like more information on Intuitive Shipping or you'd like to see how this works, please feel free to book a demo with one of our team members.

Hi @IamLLIIME,

Yes, absolutely! The app is available to anyone on Shopify, regardless of your plan. On the basic plan, you will need to activate Shopify's Carrier-Calculated Rates feature if you haven't already. Unfortunately, this is a Shopify requirement to use all third-party rate calculate apps, including Intuitive Shipping. Shopify's cost for this feature is $20 USD per month. However, if you change your Shopify plan to annual billing, they will include the feature at no additional cost.
