I would like to be able to rearange my shipping methods but as it always puts the cheapest one to the top its quite annoying as my customers keep going to the wrong one.

Can this be made a feature?

Hi @spanky1975,

 

This is a limitation with Shopify's checkout system. Shipping methods are always listed in descending order from cheapest to most expensive. To my knowledge, there is no workaround for this. Even third-party apps like Intuitive Shipping, we don't have the ability to custom sort the shipping methods. Shopify controls the checkout page. 

 

My suggestion is to reach out to Shopify support and ask them to pass this along as a feature request for a future update.

Hi @spanky1975,

 

As @Ron-Anderson mentioned, this is currently not possible with Shopify. However, if you are looking for a workaround & open to using shipping solutions, I suggest you take a look at the PH MultiCarrier Shipping Label app

 

With this app, you can choose the preferred shipping services to display in the checkout. You can also choose between Cheapest & Priority-based carriers. Attaching a screenshot for a better understanding.

The app comes with a 14-day free trial, so you can see if it works for you. Feel free to reach out to me or our team of experts for any queries.

With respect, @Anindita, your comments are very misleading. Shopify controls the checkout page and the order of display for shipping methods cannot be modified even with a third-party app. The cheapest will always be listed first. Yes, you can choose which shipping methods are displayed at checkout, and you can only have the cheapest - or only the preferred - displayed. Intuitive Shipping can do the same. What is at question here is how to sort the options that are being displayed. Their order cannot be customized.
