Set up Shipping Costs by Postcode

Hello all,

 

I'm migrating a customer over to Shopify; the delivery options available on the Shopify plan are not complex enough. I need to be able to set different prices according to the postcode in the UK for Royal Mail and flat rates for courier services etc.. I was looking at some apps to facilitate this, one of them being Better Shipping, but both apps say that I need carrier calculated shipping enabled? I sent an email to support last week, but I haven't heard back. I have read historic posts about an extra monthly charge or paying a year's fees upfront? Can anyone shed any light on this issue, please? Much appreciated. Louise :-)

Hi Louise,

 

Thanks for getting in touch with us about this! I can see why needing more flexibility in offering shipping rates would be something your client is looking for, and Better Shipping is used by a lot of merchants for this reason. The app offers a few different features and the ability to offer different rates based on more localized locations and regions is a particularly useful one. The one thing I would suggest doing is checking with Better Shipping's support team that all of the features they offer are available to merchants based in the UK; you can email them directly at better.shipping@atomyard.com.

 

The app does require the carrier-calculated shipping feature, which comes as standard with our Advanced Plan. However, as you've read elsewhere, you can add this feature onto any of our lower plans for an additional $20 per month, or you can receive it for free if you switch to an annual billing cycle for your subscription. I'm sorry to hear that you've not received a response to your email; I will be emailing you shortly so we can discuss this in more detail and potentially get this feature enabled on the store. I will be sending the email to the email address linked to your forums profile.

 

I hope we can discuss this further, and if you have any other questions, please let me know!

 

Kind regards,

 

Victor | Shopify Social Care

Hi Louise,

 

If you still need a solution, Intuitive Shipping is able to help with this. You would be able to set shipping based on postal code, and it is even specifically set up for the UK postal code format. You can also set up as many different custom rates as needed for your various carrier services. I'd be happy to help if you have any questions about it, or if you need a hand.

 

Thanks!

Hi Paul,

 

I will check out your shipping app once my client has agreed on the additional plan costs and or annual billing. Thank you for your prompt response.

Hi Paul,

 

I hope this email finds you well...

 

I still have a requirement for more complex shipping rules, here's a list of what I'm trying to replicate on the new Shopify Store. Can Intuitive Shipping help with this. The original app I was looking at can't calculate by weight? As you can see, different services are defined by either country or postcode and the calculation formula is weight and or order value.
