Can I change the default "Shipping" label when combining shipping profiles?

Hello,

In addition to the General Shipping Profile, I also have a Custom Shipping Profile for some variants of my products in my store. I like to be descriptive in the shipping rates in order for my customers to know exactly what to expect, so my rates don't have the same name in the two profiles. For this reason, when 2 products with different profiles are being purchased, the combined shipping rate is simply called "Shipping". Is there anywhere I can change this label, perhaps in the code? I looked through the Language editing options but the option wasn't there, unfortunately.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Melbot,

You may want to try updating the Title label, which is 'Shipping' by default. You'll find this in the Language 'Checkout & system' tab, in the 'Checkout shipping' section (about half way down the page). I'm not entirely sure how this behaves when blending rates from two Profiles, but it may be worth testing. It may be possible to change it in the code. If so, another member of the community may be able to assist you with that.

Alternatively, if you're open to using a third-party solution, Intuitive Shipping lets you blend multiple rates together. Using our advanced blending method, you can control exactly how blended rates are displayed at checkout. You can give blended rates custom titles, delivery times and descriptions. And, you can blend them in a variety of ways (sum, average, only the fasted delivery method, etc.).

You can read more about how to do this here. And if you'd like to learn more, you can book a live one-on-one demo with one of our team members who will be happy to walk you through the process.

Full disclosure: to use Intuitive Shipping, you will need to enable Shopify's third-party carrier-calculated shipping rates feature. This is a Shopify requirement to use any third-party rate calculator, including Intuitive Shipping. If you're on either the 'Basic' or 'Shopify' plan, this feature can be added by Shopify for $20 USD/month. If you change your Shopify billing plan to annual billing, they will add this feature at no additional cost. If you're on 'Advanced' or higher, this feature is already included and enabled.

Best regards,
Ron

Hello @Ron-Anderson , thank you for your willingness to help me! I played around with the Title label but unfortunately it does not change the combined rates label, only the title of the section. I am thinking that the solution may be in the code, but I do not know where to look.
