We are building a store for our client, and we need to have shipping per product , there are some products that are for free and each product have a different price than the other. How can this be done ? Please advise.
This is Sara, Shopify Guru :)
There is no current per product shipping setting within Shopify itself, however there are a few great apps in the Shopify App Store that can help you achieve this!
I recommend checking out these to begin with:
I hope you find the perfect fit :)

Totally agree with Sara! But there's another way too, you'd have to look it up. But pretty much, I do weight-based shipping. I set all my products to .2 lbs. So when you buy two, it'd be .4 lbs. And when editing the rates, you can say .2-.2 lbs is $5 shipping. Then .4-.4 lbs is $8 shipping. I don't really know if this is exactly what you're looking for, but rather shoot a tip over not helping at all.
I just want you to know that I have been slamming my head against the computer for months over this issue. None of the plugins do quite what they should, and the fact that it isn't a planned Shopify feature is a real pain. Suddenly, I thought I would give it another search and see what I found when I came across this answer. So simple. Yet completely adaptable to my situation.
Thanks for this!
This is ridiculous.
I only created an account, subscribed to the service, and bought a domain name because shopify was like "ooooh! drop-shipping! see how easy it is!" They even rant and rave over Oberlo, which honestly, links mostly suppliers in China. So I signed up...I placed a test order on my site today, and my checkout promised 2-3 days via USPS First Class mail. My supplier, however, is looking at 20-38 days.
How is shipping not a standard option I can control in my store? What if, instead of using drop-shippers, I was hand-crafting items in my shop, that might take a week or two to make? I work with nopCommerce, an open-source online store package at work, and even it supports per-item shipping options.
The lack of an option included in the subscription makes shopify utterly useless for anyone that doesn't have inventory or a place to put inventory. I just signed up today, but I doubt I'll be opening my store. Instead, I'll be spending my trial period looking at other eCommerce solutions.
This topic may be old, but I am new to Shopify. So the topic is new to me.
The reason I was looking at this was:
Some products are too big to be shipped as a basic envelope. ( even is they are just barely too big )
Or the product is only a couple bucks, but the shipping would be 3 times the price of the product.
I want those products to be - not available to ship. Pickup only.
I do not use the Shopify Shipping, as most of our products are able to be shipped in envelops.
I already had pick up in store set up as a free shipping item.
What I did was go into settings - shipping
Then Custom shipping rates for products.
Create profile, set up a name, create a shipping zone
I added the specific products to this profile that I did not want shipped
assigned the Pickup in Store shipping rate option (free )
I did not add any conditions
It seems to work great
when I have those items in the cart
It will not allow me to choose a shipping option
it only allows me to pick up in store
even if there are other items in the cart
if i remove the restricted item and leave the other stuff ( things that will ship)
the regular shipping options return
hope this helps someone else
