How to handle shipping fee package of different package of products?

Hi. This is just simple but I cannot figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.


The products on my store are
- 1 product A
- 1 product B
- 1 product C
- 3 products of A
- 3 products of B
- 3 products of C
- 6 products of A
- 6 products of B
- 6 products of C


If the order has less than 3 items, the shipping fee should be $5.
If the order has 3 or more items, the shipping fee should be $8.


I can set it up if the order is 3 items of product A, B or C. However if the order is 1A, 1B and 1C altogether, it is technically 3 quantities of products so the shipping fee should be $8, and that I cannot figure out a way to do.


There is no information I can see if the order is mixed. How would I solve this issue?

There is no direct way to do this in Shopify. You have to choose one of the two options below:

1. Use weights as an alternative to number of items and then set shipping rates based on the total weight of items in cart.

2. Use an app like ShipMagic to setup rates exactly as you want.

Automate & bulk assign products to shipping profile: Auto Shipping Profiles: Shipr
Calculate accurate shipping rates: Shipping Calculator: ShipMagic

Hi, @henry45 


This is a great question! Thanks for posting.


The solution would depend on how you currently have your products set up. Are the products with multiple quantities set up as variants? Or are you using bundles to set this up? 


Thanks in advance!
