Hello,

 

I am new to Shopify and I am still working on my website, I but a domain using Shopify and still developing my site. I will be selling printed T-shirts via Printify, the problem is I can wrap my head around these shipping rate IT IS CONFUSING BEYOND BELIEF!! There a Printify shipping profile integrated itself when I connected my product via their site, but that doesn't work the admin says that I have missing rates and I have to create these things myself so there is also a GENERAL PROFILE, no matter what I do, it always fails to work and tons of nations can checkout when I simulate the checkout even though Printify integrated all shipping rate necessary to sell and ship everywhere around the globe but Shopify doesn't like it.

 

I am from Spain and the admin insists that must have a main marker (WHICH I DON'T HAVE) I sell those T-Shirts world wide it doesn't matter whether the customer is in Spain or not because I outsource the printing and the delivery to US companies via Printify so I don't sell or send anything from my location.

 

I have a big problem making this work. I don't want anything but USA and International because the companies I use are located in the US therefore my real local market is not spain but USA and it's the cheapest shipping rate because of that. shopify doesn't understand this and displays very low shipping rates for Spain because the admin thinks that I deliver from Spain which is not the case but from USA so Spain must be considered International.

 

It is just horrible and truly regret beginning here I fell lost after all the effort I put on my products and the website design.

 

Can anyone advise something please ?

 

Thank you.

First of all thank you so much for your fast response you truly restored my faith in Shopify. Second what you offered bizarrely worked flawlessly. even though still saying that some shipping rates are missing in my international market but pretty much all nations I want to sell to get their shipping calculated perfectly during checkout including USA and Europe.

 

I can't thank you enough you saved my start-up once I start selling I'll offer you a free T-shirt as a gift haha. goto exocloth.com and make a choice, once I officially start I'll send you a gift. I've been wrapping my head around this hell-shipping for 4 days my GOOOD.

 

THANKS A LOOOT
