Hi! We are a home furnishings company in Nashville. We are trying to figure out how to offer flat rate zone shipping at checkout so our customers can order pieces of furniture and get them shipped to their house upon checkout. I’m seeing this on various websites where a customer can enter in their address and it automatically populates with a zone shipping quote for furniture, and I cannot find a company that offers this. Is there an app that facilitates this for us? Please help! Pictures below of Shopify websites that offer this.

We can help you setup this with our app, JsRates. JsRates is designed for such kind of custom shipping rates. If you are keen, install the app and reach out to our support team via "Contact support" in the app. We will help you with the setup. JsRates has a free demo plan to install and setup the rates. You will also need the third party calculated shipping rate activated on your store to use JsRates at checkout.

Thank you! So who is doing the actual delivery? Are you facilitating that? And providing delivery services as well?

Oh, sorry, I think I misunderstood your question. I thought you are after for zone based shipping rates. Our app is only used to calculate shipping rates - we do not provide delivery services. We only implement the custom shipping rates for your store.

Figuring out shipping logistics can be a real puzzle, especially when it comes to big items like furniture. Have you considered reaching out to Shopify directly? They often have apps or integrations that can help streamline the shipping process.

I remember when I was setting up my own online store, I stumbled upon a similar issue. After some digging, I found a solution through a forum post that mentioned a company called Elegant Furniture UK. Their website not only offered flat rate zone shipping but also had a user-friendly interface for customers to input their address and get an instant shipping quote. It made the whole process seamless for both me and my customers.
