having trouble in setting up my shipping rates.. what do i do to set up different rates for different locations but same product?
I saw this,
A product or variant can belong to only one shipping profile at a time. If you add a product or variant to a second shipping profile, then it is removed from the first profile.
And that keeps happening.
How do i fix that when my shipping rates for the same products are different per location

This is an accepted solution.
In your shipping settings, look for the "Shipping From" section...
Here, you can click the "Manage" link to individually update the shipping rates from each location.
It sounds like you are just trying to set up rates for different shipping zones. Don't create individual shipping profiles for different shipping destinations. Within the same profile, create a shipping zone for 'East Coast' that includes the destination states that you want those rates for, and a shipping zone for 'West Coast' that includes the destination states that you want those rates to apply to.
The customer will not see anything about shipping zones. The customer will simply either receive the applicable rates for the zone that includes their shipping address. Or, if there are no zones or rates set up that include their shipping address they will receive a message telling them that there are no shipping rates available for their address or "We do not ship to your location".
I don't see a way to create two shipping zones in the US within a single shipping profile. When I try to create two shipping zones, east coast and west coast, I can only use the US for one of these zones. I only see countries and regions, not states within the US. Am I looking in the wrong place?
You can create 2 different zones to different parts of the U.S. within the same profile. Whichever zone you created first, go in and make sure that you selected the applicable states individually rather than checking the box for the entire U.S. If you check-marked the entire U.S. in the first zone, it won't be available when you go to setup the 2nd zone.
