Hello,
Once I start to use CarrierService API I get "must have carrier calculated shipping rates enabled" in feedback from API.
Why?

request_params =  {
      carrier_service:{
                name: "Test",
                callback_url: "https://shopify.test.com/checkout",
                service_discovery: true
              }    
}

Thanks!

Just a guess, but please ensure your store is on the 'Advanced' plan or higher,

*or* create a 'development store' to test from

From reaching out to customer support, it sounds like CCS (Carrier Calculated Shipping) needs to be enabled in a store. This comes default with the advanced Shopify plan. If a store is not on this plan, it needs to be enabled through the Shopify support desk (upon request from the account owner) for an additional: $20USD a month. Another option is if the account owner changes the subscription invoice from monthly to annual- not only will they enable CCS free of charge per year but they'll also get 10% off their subscription cost.

 

It would be great if:

a) Shopify could be more explicit about this in the Carrier Shipping API documentation

b) provide a way to change this within the application without going to the support desk.
