Setting Up Flat Rate Shipping on different profiles same country

Hi,

I would like to know how can I achieve flat rate shipping for the same country in different shipping profiles with different products. 

Consider this scenario below.

General Profile
Australia 
Product 1
Flat-Rate Shipping 
$0 and above
$10
Custom Profile 1
Australia 
Product 2
Flat-Rate Shipping 
$0 and above
$10

USA
Product 2
Standard Shipping
$0 and above
$80
Custom Profile 2
Australia 
Product 3
Flat-Rate Shipping 
$0 and above
$10

USA
Product 3
Standard Shipping
$0 and above
$50

 

If I'm a customer from Australia and wanted to buy Product 1 and Product 2, currently my shipping cost will be $20. But I want flat-rate shipping of $10 regardless of the products I added.

If I'm a customer from the USA and purchased Product 2 and Product 3, I want a shipping cost of $130 - which is actually correct right now.

How can I achieve flat rate shipping for Australia?

Hi @woodyoubuy,

Unfortunately, I don't believe this is possible with Shopify's built-in shipping methods, since Profiles are designed to be combined. So there is no way for the system to know that customers from Australia should only get a flat price while customers from other countries get a combined price.

If you're open to using a third-party solution, Intuitive Shipping lets you set up individual rules-based shipping methods for any shipping zone, so you could have specific product-based Scenarios that create a combined shipping method for customers in the US, and a 'general' Scenario for all products that only charges the flat rate to customers in Australia. 

If you'd like to learn more about how to set this up with Intuitive Shipping, you can book a demo with one of our team members who would be happy to walk you through the process. 

 

Please note: when using a third-party rate calculator, including Intuitive Shipping, Shopify requires you to have their Carrier-calculated Rates feature installed. If you're on either the 'Basic' or 'Shopify' plan, this feature costs USD $20/ month. If you switch to annual billing, Shopify will include the feature at no extra cost and give you 10% off the plan. If you're on the 'Advanced' plan or higher, the feature is already included.

Best regards,

Ron
