hi @mparthenia1 ,

There's a lot of shipping options in Shopify.

You can set rate base on the product weight or product price then you can declare how much the customers will be charge for example:

Product A weight 1lb

You can set up weight base shipping: 

From 0lb to 1lb the shipping cost will be 5USD. 

Incase you are looking for a way to integrate with shipping courier like UPS or USPS etc. you can enable Shopify Shipping if your business is in US, Canada or Australia. 

 Here's a link to Shopify Shipping Doc

Hi @mparthenia1,

If you are looking to ship based on weight of your products, you can handle it directly with Shopify shipping. To know more on how to set it up, please look into this guide:

Now, if your store is based in the US, you can integrate with carriers like USPS, UPS, and DHL Express directly with Shopify and get discounted shipping rates. If your store is based in Canada, you get access to Canada Post and for Australia, you get access to Sendle. For more info, please look into this guide from Shopify:

If your store is based outside the US, Canada, and Australia, you can enable Carrier calculated shipping on your store and get access calculate and display live shipping rates on Shopify checkout. Along with this feature, you can use an app like the Multi Carrier Shipping Label that helps you integrate all top carriers like FedEx, UPS, DHL, Canada Post, Australia Post, Parcelforce, Purolator and many more, and get live shipping rates from all these carriers, including printing shipping labels and automating tracking.
