How can I set up the Printify Shipping Calculator for Shopify?
The Printify Shipping Calculator for Shopify will automatically add the correct shipping rate to your customer’s shopping cart. For a Shopify user, it is the most convenient shipping solution, as there is minimal setup required on your part.
However, please note that the Shipping Calculator shipping prices are set to United States Dollars and won’t be converted to another currency. If you’re using a different currency for your Shopify store, we recommend choosing one of these shipping setup options instead.
In order to enable the Printify Shipping Calculator, you’ll need any of the following:
Advanced Shopify plan
- Shopify Plus plan
Any Shopify plan with an annual payment plan
Alternatively, you can contact Shopify Support and have the carrier-calculated shipping feature added to any Shopify subscription plan for a monthly fee. This feature will allow you to enable the Printify Shipping Calculator.
How to set up the Printify Shipping Calculator
1. First, reach out to Shopify and request to have this feature enabled for your user account. If you’re using the Advanced Shopify or Shopify Plus plan, this feature is already automatically enabled for you and doesn’t need to be requested.
2. Next, log in to your Printify account on printify.com. Navigate to your store settings and click on “Shipping calculator”. Check the box next to “Enable Printify shipping calculation for Shopify checkout”.
3. 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.
