Hello there,

I am planning to spread my clothing business in the USA as I have already some stores in Bangladesh. And the fact is I really don't know about the shipping procedure from Bangladesh to the USA. Can you please help me regarding the fact. Thank you.

Okay, no problem. Let me share some information here about what is possible within the Shopify admin.

 

You can set up each of your physical stores as Locations in the admin. This will allow you to assign inventory to each location and fulfill orders from each as well. The links I've included in this post will take you to the Shopify Help Center pages that offer more information on the Locations and Inventory features.

 

Regarding the shipping carrier you choose, I recommend researching to see if you can find out what the most popular options are locally. Even if there are just one or two major carriers, it's a great start to look at their rates and see if you might be interested in working with them. There might also be an app in the Shopify App Store to sync your orders with the carrier for easy shipping label purchases. For example, the Maersk E‑Delivery app connects to multiple carriers and allows you to purchase labels online.

Hi, @Mihrab. It's exciting to hear that you're expanding your business! 

 

I'm curious to learn a bit more about your business so that I can offer some advice on how you might best handle shipping to the USA. I've got some questions here to get a better sense of your business needs:

  • Do you manage your own inventory?
  • Will you be shipping from one of your existing stores, or are you interested in working with a fulfillment center?
  • Are there any particular shipping carriers you're interested in using?

In the meantime, we have a general guide to international shipping here that may be helpful in planning your shipping strategy.

No I won't be able to manage my own inventory for this I need your help. And yes the products will be shipping from my existing shops but I don't have any ideas regarding shipping method cause I don't have any particular choice.
