Hi,

 

Is there a way to customize shipping methods title in checkout? 

 

As example ("FedEx 2Day" change it to be "FedEx Second Day")?

 

Or any recommended app for this issue

 

Thanks in advance!

This is an accepted solution.

This may be possible through your theme language customizer. You'll want to navigate to your language editor by going to Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Languages. Here's a link with details instructions.

From here, use the search bar to find the lines you'd like to alter. Try keywords like "shipping" or "check out" page. If the field you want to edit isn't available, then you may need to get in touch with a Shopify Expert to assist.

As far as apps, it looks like Intuitive Shipping provides the ability to customizes things such as shipping titles, definitely worth a shot. However, although I suspect you already have this enabled, it's important to note that Shopify's Carrier Calculated Rates must be enabled to access this app. Here's how to activate those rates.

Hope that helps!

My absolute pleasure to help. 

Are you just getting started on Shopify or adding some more comprehensive shipping options? Just in case, here's a great link to our Shipping Policy template and examples to help inspire your own. 

Having a thorough and informative shipping policy page will help mitigate customer support debt, build trust and lend an air of professionalism to your store. 

If there's anything else I can help with just let me know!

You can easily do this using the BeSure Checkout Rules app. Here are the steps after installing the app,

 

1 - Create a new rule of "Rename shipping methods".

2 - Inside the rule, enter the name of the shipping method you want to change i-e "FedEx 2Day" and then enter the new name i-e "FedEx Second Day".

3 - Click on create rule button and done.

 

This works for even basic Shopify plan. You can even add a message to the shipping method name to better handle customer expectations, for example, "Friday order will arrive on Monday" etc.

After a bit of stuffing around i think i have a work around that allows the 'transit time' data to be used in the cart and a way to explain what 'standard' shipping is. I used the language/theme content area to add a line of text below the Shipping Heading and above the shopify nominated 'Standard Shipping' line items.

 

screenshot of theme editor and cart to show how it looks. Hope this helps someone without the need to pay for an app.
