Eight thousand dollars third party carrier activated shipping

So I have to pay about 8000.00 a year for third party carrier shipping is outrageous. 

Either $300 a month minimum or prepay $4000 a year. 

I have 2 stores. You want me to come up with $10000 dollars cash for privilege to ship?  

Unfortunately I read the 60 or so articles that are out there that said shipping was an add on. 

I am closing both of my Shopify stores as ten thousand dollars for shipping privileges is not an expense I have read about after months and months of research. 

I feel deceived.

I'm sorry that you're facing such condition but as a community member I would like to share my experience with you.

I have one store and I added a drop-shipping company app to add their products on my store but as they've different shipping cost for each pincode/zipcode so I contact Shopify Support to add an add-on which is Carrier Calculated Shipping and that costed my $20 per month only and I'm now don't need to add any shipping rules on my store because using that add-on it's auto sync with dropshipping company's rules.


If this is what you're talking about you should talk with Shopify Support.

Let me know if you're talking something else.

Unfortunately they do not offer this anymore.

This is the problem... For months, I have read article after article about Shopify being able to add this for $20.00 a month and now they just don’t offer it.

Your choice is $299 for third party shipping or Pre Pay the ANNUAL fee for a Basic plan to get the shipping. So you have to fork out around $3700 dollars just to third party ship. If you have 2 stores this is slightly under $10000.

The big box stores already get a huge discount on their shipping rates, individuals can’t compete with those rates and now Shopify is sticking it to the small business person.
