I don;t know about anyone else, but I get very confused sometimes using and setting up shipping rates. I use different suppliers and I know there is a way to set up different shipping rates but it would be so much simpler for me if I could choose the shipping rate I set up as I am creating the product. Just placing a checkmark would be great!. Thanks
I appreciate your feedback regarding setting the individual shipping rate for a product during the creation stage. While this isn't a feature right now, I'd be happy to provide some insight on how you can utilize shipping profiles to create unique shipping rates for each of your suppliers.
There are three components to how shipping is setup in Shopify:
1. Shipping profiles. You can use shipping profiles to add in specific products or collections to seperate shipping costs in that manner.
2. Shipping zones. Within each profile, you can add multiple Shipping zones. These are the regions/countries that you will offer shipping to. You can create as many or little as you like.
3. Shipping rates. Within each shipping zone, you can create a set of shipping rates based on conditions or criteria that meet your needs. This is where you set how much it will cost customers for shipping.
I recommend getting started with our guide on creating shipping profiles here. If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
