I want to ship the same line of products but have two separate drop shippers in canada and united states. The reason being shipping my designed products from Printful to Canada is far too expensive. Is it possible to set it up that the same tshirt for example would ship from Printful for a US customer and from another dropshipper (i have yet to find) from Canada for a Canadian customer?
Dalaimamma, new to shopify and dropshippng!
First of all, excellent choice of name. But for your question, in order to choose a different carrier, all you need to do is create separate zones for Canada and USA in your Shopify settings. In Shopify > Shipping in your profile(s), you can create separate zones for each country, and then, when adding rates, it will only show the rates included in said zone to the customers, ie. if you have a USA zone with printful and CAN zone with another carrier, a CAN customer would not be able to see the printful rates.
Yes, it is possible. Have two different product links. One for the USA and another one for Canada. Promote the product link to respective countries.
If the USA customer purchased the Canada product link, no problem ship it from the USA supplier itself since the products are same.
thank you for the compliment on the name and your quick response. If I understand what you are saying I dont think it answers what I am asking. Basically what I would like to do is sell a tshirt design that is linked to printful and sell that same tshirt design that is linked to Canadian drop shipper so it s the same shirt which in theory be listed twice on my website, so somehow have us customers only see the ones that are available from printful and canadian customers only see the ones available from Canadian drop shipper. I saw someone talk about an app that blocks view of some products for certain regions. Not sure if that would do for me. In the long run having a canadian and us website would be the answer but as i am starting out i just want to stick with one.
You can use a 3pl provider like librexpress.com. They will connect to your dropshipping customer's stores and then ship on your behalf.
I am a distributor. I have about 350 stores that dropship from me. Librex Fulfillment stores all of my products and then connects to my clients 350 stores. As the stores get orders they ship out my items in real-time. This might be what you are looking for.
I'm new to shopify but am wondering about this same question. If you set up 2 different shipping zones with 2 different carriers, would you set up the products + product prices separately for each zone too? for example, if you had zone a with carrier 1, and you had products a-f listed, would you set up zone b with carrier 2, and list products f-z (even if they were the same products, they'd be separately listed and only visible according to pre-set prices + carriers?
Would this be able to work if say, you were shipping from 2 different countries, like let's say I could ship from Canada across North America, and I could also ship from Spain across Europe, as I was set up in both countries and that way I had two home bases for the same products, so my shipping would be cheaper bc I wouldn't have to ship as far internationally seeing as I was set up in two places? Would i just be able to edit the 2 zones and integrate local couriers in this case, and then use 2 different currencies? Can I change the currencies for the separate zones then too? Thanks
@Dalaimamma did you find the answer to this?
For now the only way I can think of is simply to not choose any vendor when you create a product. And then, when you get the order you go to either printful or the other one and create order there and send it to costumer.
Did you find any other solution? I need too
