How to set up shipping rate that is base rate plus by weight?

Hi, 

 

How would we set up a shipping rate like this: Base rate of $12, plus $0.30 per lbs. 

 

Is it possible, is there a simple app that would do this? We were able to do it in BigCommerce by making the base rate the "handling fee" but there doesn't seem to be a way of doing both in Shopify, it's either/or. 

 

Advice? 

Thanks!

Hi @Tigridia ,

I am the founder of ShipMagic app, an app that allows you to set customised rates at checkout. I can  add this type of rate customisation feature to the app if you want to give us a try. 

 

Just install the app and reach out to our support team from inside the app. 

Btw, the app is free currently but you need to have CCS enabled on your store to use third party shipping rate provider apps like ours. CCS is free if you are on the advanaced or plus plan or if you are paying for the shopify plan annually. Otherwise, you have to pay $20 per month to Shopify to get it enabled on your store. This is an absolute requirement by Shopify and I am sorry but there is no workaround for this.

In our app Intuitive Shipping, we have the ability to set a minimum cost to display for shipping, and with a tiered rate row, you can subsequently build off of that. You can have it be unlimited items will receive a $0.30 per lb or tiered. There is a lot of control inside our app. 

 

If this is something you would like to look into, please book a Free Demo where you can see everything our app can do. Demo Link

 

Third Party Calculated Rates is a mandatory feature from Shopify. This is accessible for all as long as your plan level isn't Basic. 

 

I hope you have a fantastic weekend,
