Create rates for a zone

Before you create rates

Rates are tied to the zone, and you can have as many rates as you like. You can create price-based rates, weight-based rates, or have both active at the same time—Delivery Rates by Zip Code will show all the rates your customer is eligible for.

Create your first rate

  1. In Delivery Rates by Zip Code, go to Zones & Rates.
  2. Click the zone you want to create rates for.
  3. Go to the Rates section.
  4. Click Add price-based rate or Add weight-based rate.

You’ll now be able to give your rate a name and a description, set rate limits (minimum and maximum order price/weight), and adjust pricing.

Note

You can change weight unit and the currency symbol in Settings.

Create a price based rate

In this example, we’ll create rates based on the order price.

$5
2
More than $30    
Free

Rate 1

  1. Let’s give this rate a recognizable name: Delivery rate $5. We’ll also tell our customers they can get free delivery if they spend more than $30 to give them an incentive to spend more.
  2. For Rate limits, we’ll set:
    • no minimum order price
    • maximum order price of $30
  3.  For Rate price, we’ll set it to $5.
  4. Click Create rate.

Rate 2

  1. Let’s give this rate a recognizable name: Free delivery.
  2. For Rate limits, we’ll set
    • minimum order price of $30

  4. Click Create rate.

All done! You should now have these rates:
