• The 'Shipping Profile' interface facilitates to define the shipping charges based on the different scenarios. It consists of Shipping Codes, Modes and Zones.



Shipping Modes:

  • The shipping mode is a way of shipping the goods. It is the combination of a shipping company and shipping service offered by that company.
    • Example: Aramex - Express, Aramex - Domestic, Blue Dart - Air, etc…

  • The shipping modes are visible to the customers in the storefront for selection during the checkout. If a 'shipping mode' is used in multiple 'shipping codes', and those 'shipping codes' are associated with a single product, when any user opts that 'shipping mode', the combined charges will be applied to that product. Hence, care must be taken while association.



Shipping Zones:

  • Zones are geographical regions or jurisdiction area representing a Country, State or Territory, or City to which you ship goods. You can allocate different Shipping changes as per zone.



Shipping Codes:

  • The Shipping Codes are used for associating with your products for applying the shipping charges.

  • You can configure a location against each shipping code if you have enabled the location wise shipping charges.

  • You can also ensure the delivery area wise shipping charges by selecting the required areas.

  • If shipping is not free, you can define the exclusive charges for the 'COD' shipping and 'Prepaid' shipping.
  • You need to create separate 'Shipping Codes' for 'Free Shipping' and 'Prepaid'/'COD' Shipping.

  • If you configure same shipping code for both the 'Prepaid Shipping' and 'COD Shipping', the relevant shipping charges will be automatically applied as per the selected checkout option in the storefront. i.e. if the user selects the COD checkout, the COD shipping charges' will be applied. Else, the prepaid shipping charges will be applied.



Shipping Methods:

  • Shipping Methods represent the base for calculating the shipping Charges. There are four types of shipping methods:
  • Flat: Customer will be charged a specific flat amount for each product in an order
  • Weight: Customer will be charged as per the weight of the individual product in an order
  • Cart Weight: Customer will be charged as per the total weight of all products (Cart Weight) in an order
  • Cart Amount: Customer will be charged as per the total amount of all products (Cart Amount) in an order
