Hello Team,

 

I need to set the shipping rate as per item quantity.

For Example:

User buy ABC product and ABC product having a shipping rate $10.

if ABC product quantity = 1 then shipping charges = $10.

If ABC  product quantity = 2 then shipping charges  = $20

 

Please let me know, How we can achieve this? 

I am using a free minimal theme and Shopify $79 plan.

 

Thanks In Advance 🙂

Hi @ShubhamEkade,

Hyde here to help. That's an interesting one!

Shopify allows you to set shipping rates for the price and weight of the product, as opposed to quantity. There's more on that here. So you may need to massage your set-up process a little to meet your needs. What you could do is set up rates according to the weight of the products.

What this means is that if the user buys product ABC with a shipping rate of $10, then you set a second rate for 2 products that is $20 and so on so that it looks like this:

20-03-chusb-16w9o

 

 

Remember that when you're editing/adding a rate you can determine whether it's based on the weight or price of the order by selecting "Add Conditions":

20-03-5b3na-h0h7i

 

Bear in mind too that you have the option to create different rates according to profiles of products and collections. So you could also group products together in specific profiles that charge different rates too. There's more on Shipping Profiles here.

 

I hope this helps, but I'm happy to answer any other questions you may have.

 

All the best, Hyde.

You can use the Multi Carrier Shipping Label app to achieve this. Within the app, you can create multiple rules based on the order quantity (as per your requirement) and set up a flat rate for each rule.

Hi

Thanks for your quick response 🙂 

 

I Implemented your solutions and works fine but showing an error at the top of the shipping rate on the checkout page.

Please refer to the below screenshot.

Is that warning or error?

This usually means that the order weight or price falls outside of the rates that you have created in your store admin. 

When you're putting your rates into, please ensure that there is no overlap. In other words, if you're using product prices for the condition, make sure that if a customer orders a product that costs $45 for example, that products for that price-range only fall within one particular rate. 

It could look something like this:
20-03-c9yfo-kkcg0


I'd recommend you have a look at your rates again to ensure that you have a minimum and maximum weight/price condition set so that the system knows what to charge for shipping when an order comes through.

All the best, Hyde.

Are you sure this is how this works? 

When I add new shipping rates with a weight condition like so it doesn't work.Screen Shot 2020-06-30 at 7.51.39 PM.png

Is it weight on a per item basis?  It still shows the shipping rate for just the one, no matter how many I buy.

This should be a built-in feature, not something where we have to mess around with weight or price. For stores with hundreds or thousands of products, this is not practical to set up. And we should not have to install a paid app either.

When shipping your products with any courier they will want to know the weight of the package and, in many cases, the cost of the items inside the package. This is why Shopify offers you the option to create shipping rates for your products based on their weight or price. The number of products you have in store, therefore, doesn't really matter precisely because the rates do not apply to individual products.


The rates you create are used as rules that the system can measure each order against and charge the customer accordingly so that you are not out of pocket. Of course, if you're struggling with this or want something easier, you could always create a flat rate instead. That is outlined in this guide here.

All the best, Hyde.

I'm having the same problem. When I offer differnt shipping options based on a certain amount, my customers always select the lowest option regardless of the amount of their order. For some reason Shopify does't automatically apply the right amount upon checkout? 

I have figured out how to apply a certain rate for each group of items, but I would like it to apply to each product and quantity ordered.

Exactly! Is Shopify working on this?

The ability to charge my customers a shipping fee that is different than what the carrier is charging me should be an included feature of Shopify. For instance, I may want to charge my customers a $5.00 flat rate to ship 1, 2, or 3 items but give them free shipping if they put 4 items in the cart. I don't care if the carrier charges me $8.80 for that ground shipping and my customer does not care either. 


It's silly to have to try to game the system by manipulating the weight of each item in shopify. It should be trivial for Shopify to enable Ship Rate by Item Count for Store Owners.

You are so right! Shopify has gone very quiet on this ..................?

Hi @tastesofmargs 

 

Quantity based shipping is not currently offered on Shopify without the use of an app. For getting quantity-based rates you have to rely on apps, I would like to suggest Multi Carrier Shipping Label app. The app allows you to set flat rates based on the number of your products. You can also set multiple shipping rules based on your needs.

Anindita,

It's good to see that someone in Shopify has finally seen this thread and responded. However, Shopify's refusal to listen to customers about this feature is poor form. It is trivial for Shopify to enable Ship Rate by Item Count, and baffling that it has not been done by now.

EMG96, you are absolutely correct. This SHOULD be a built in feature and we should not have to try to game the system so that we can offer our customers shipping rates based on item counts. Shopify's suggestion that the way to solve this problem is with a paid app is tone deaf.

Yes, Instead of building one for your customers in which we pay monthly to use your platform, we should pay more for a 3rd party app because that's what your entire business model is about. Lack in features which 3rd party providers create making you and them more money. Unbelievable

I am running into the same problem. I had an App, and due to lack of revenue, I had to get arid of ALL paid apps, This is such a typical function, I didn't think I would run into Shopify not being able to support it. I have an order now (05/09/22) I am probably going to refund the customer as they bought 5 of something which I charge 7.95 for shipping and my vendor wants to charge 36.00.... This is nuts....

Squareup offers a free eCommerce storefront WITH included ability to ship per QTY. I've build stores on both platforms. Shopify pay per app function is what makes me leave every time.

Great so pay $29 a month (because I will be selling more than 100 items per month) for an App that sure has lots of functionality (that I do not need) for a single need, QTY based shipping setup is absurd. Time to write some code and bypass shopify inability to satisfy customers.
