Merchants based in India can choose to sell their products both domestically and abroad, and Shopify allows you to control where you ship your products and how much you want to charge for shipping. When selling domestically, you can place regions of India into different shipping zones and set appropriate shipping prices:

For example, if you are based in and shipping from Tamil Nadu, you may wish to offer cheaper shipping rates for neighboring states in comparison to those in the north of the country. By adding these states into different shipping zones, you could, for example, set cheaper shipping rates for customers in Andhra Pradesh and more expensive rates for those in Uttar Pradesh.

Shiprocket is an app built for Indian merchants that allows for the purchasing of shipping labels from numerous couriers, including FedEx, BlueDart, Delhivery, DHL, Gati, and others.

Hi @AnkitKumar,

Thank you for the suggestion; I have gone ahead and added Shiprocket as a suggested app for Indian merchants in the main post.

Kind regards,

Hi @Victor,

Can you please update the list of shipping apps with our Multi Carrier Shipping Label app? The app allows to integrate different carriers like Delhivery, BlueDart, DHL, and FedEx for Indian merchants, and we already have a lot of Indian merchants using the app to handle the shipping process. 

Adding to the features, the app is GST Compliant for DHL and FedEx India and also supports CSB-V for FedEx.

Hi @HariKrishna,

Yes, sure thing—if the app is already serving a number of Indian merchants and offers a variety of different shipping options in India, I'm happy to add it. I'll do so now.

Kind regards,

Hi @Narayanjagwani,

If you wish to restrict shipping options based on customers' postal codes, there are a number of third-party apps that allow you to do this. Examples include Easy Shipping Restrictions and Postcode Shipping, which should both work for India, although there are a variety of apps you can choose from on the Shopify App Store.

I want to add Delhivery in my Shopify store. I have the basic plan. Which app will be good and that will calculate the shipping price accordingly?
