For a Shopify user, the Printify Shipping Calculator is the most convenient shipping solution — it means that the correct flat shipping rate will be automatically added to your customer’s shopping cart. Best of all: there is minimal setup required on your part, allowing you to focus on selling and marketing your products.
In order to enable the Printify Shipping Calculator, you’ll need any of the following:
Advanced Shopify plan
Annual Shopify payment plan
Carrier-calculated shipping (additional $20 USD per month, contact Shopify Support to request it)
How to set it up
1. First, reach out to Shopify and request to have this feature enabled for your user account. If you’re using the Advanced Shopify plan, this feature is already automatically enabled for you and doesn’t need to be requested.
2. Next, navigate to your store settings, and click on “Shipping Calculator”. Then, check the box next to “Enable Printify shipping calculation for Shopify checkout”.
3. Next, click on Import Shopify zones directly below that same checkbox. This will allow you to import any existing non-Printify product flat rates, in case you have any such products.
This is a workaround solution we created to allow you to use the Printify Shipping Calculator with other non-Printify products that use flat rates. As a result, if your customer wants to purchase a product from Printify and a non-Printify product, we will calculate the exact shipping rate from Printify, together with the other flat rate.
Please note: Make sure that your non-Printify products with flat rates are in a separate shipping profile from the Calculator, as otherwise you won’t be able to add the same shipping zones to the Calculator.
4. Go to your Shopify account, and navigate to “Shipping and delivery”. Next to “General shipping rates”, click “Manage rates”. Then delete all zones listed there.
5. Next, click on “Create shipping zone” to create a new zone in the same “general shipping profile”, with all of the 240 countries available.
6. Then click Add rate and select “Use carrier or app to calculate rates”. Choose Printify from the drop-down menu. Check the box for “Standard” and click Done.
That’s really all there is to it — now your store shipping has been set up, and you can start making sales!
