What Is Better Shipping?


Better shipping lets you set suitable shipping rates so you are not out of pocket.

Better shipping gives you two distinct features that enable you to take full control over how much you charge for shipping.

Do you have specialty items that take extra care to ship? Do you have multiple suppliers who charge flat shipping for items? Use Better Shipping to set the shipping rate accordingly.

Using 'per product' shipping prices lets you set shipping prices for each one of your products. This means that you can set $5.00 shipping for one of your products, $7.50 for another one, and have free shipping on a third product - it's up to you!

You also have the option for tiered shipping. This means that you can set multiple shipping rates for an item depending on the quantity the customer buys. Want to charge $10 for the first item, and then $5 for every extra item? Better Shipping has you covered!

Need to charge different shipping rates for different areas? Hard to deliver to area? Set the shipping rates based on the zip/post code.

Using the delivery areas feature you are able to set the shipping rate for individual zip/post code. This is great if you need to charge different rates for different areas or have a certain area that is expensive to deliver to.

You can also use the delivery areas feature to restrict delivery to only certain areas. Only send your products to certain zip/post codes? No problem! These restrictions can be implemented without any hassle to you or your customers.

Should I Be Using Better Shipping In My Store?


Better Shipping is perfect for anyone who:


  • Needs to set individual shipping prices for every product

  • Needs to set tiered (multiple) shipping prices for every product

  • Has multiple drop shipping suppliers who charge different shipping rates

  • Needs to charge additional postage amounts to specific areas and locations

  • Needs to restrict postage to ONLY specific locations

  • Needs to bulk update their per product shipping by product type, collection, or vendor

  • Or if you want the flexibility and availability to take full control over your Shopify shipping

Being able to set individual shipping prices is essential if you have multiple suppliers and/or drop ship any of your products.



How does it work?


Better Shipping calculates shipping rates based on the customer’s zip or post code and the items they order. A customer ordered a fragile antique? Drop shipping supplier uses flat shipping rates? Need to deliver fresh food afar? No problem! Better Shipping allows you to set suitable rates so you are not out of pocket.

Features:



  • Per Product Shipping Rates - Set a different flat shipping rate for every single product in your store. No need to worry about weight or dimensions.

  • Location based shipping prices - Set shipping prices for specific areas using zip/post codes.

  • Restrict delivery to certain locations - Do you only deliver to certain locations? Set them up so that your customers can only ship to those areas.

* Requires real-time carrier shipping. To discuss adding this to your existing plan, contact Shopify on 1-888-746-7439 or sales@shopify.com

I have been using Better Shipping on my first Shopify store for a while, and I love the per product shipping.


I recently opened a second store on Shopify, and I have 2 products that can only be shipped within the USA. Everything else in my store can be shipped worldwide. I had to find a way to restrict delivery areas for those 2 products and also use per product shipping. I couldn’t figure out how to do this, so I sent an email to support at Better Shipping.

Within about an hour, I received an email from Peter at Better Shipping. He explained that what I wanted to do wasn’t possible with the current version of the app, but they are just about to release an update for the app that would allow me to do what I need to do. Then he offered to give me early access to Better Shipping 2.0.

I took Peter up on his offer and he sent me VERY detailed instructions on how to set up the different shipping zones and per product shipping. He even guided me through going into my Shopify theme and creating a custom message for customers who live outside of the USA and try to purchase the 2 items that can only be shipped within the USA.

Thank you so much to Peter for the exceptional service you provided! I would not have been able to do what I needed to do without access to Better Shipping 2.0, and I would not have figured out how to set everything up, for my unique situation, without your excellent guidance.

If you haven’t seen Better Shipping 2.0 yet, it is awesome! Now you can combine shipping zones and per product shipping. You can also set rates for multiples from the same collection/product line. For example if you want to charge $5 to ship the first product, and $2 for the second product, in the same group (collection, variations, however you want to group them) you can do that, and you can even set different group rates for different shipping zones. Better Shipping 2.0 does everything I want it to. It has solved ALL of my problems with setting shipping rates. Yay Better Shipping 2.0! I couldn’t be happier!

14.99 per month does nothing because you need the feature that cost an extra 20 per month for it to even work, lost money because of this app.. There's got to be something better

Doesnt work based on collections.

I want a simple app with different prices per collection and this app fails to do so, waste of money

Amazing technical support and excellent app. Exactly what we wanted. Thank you very much, Peter, for your great work and help to configure this brilliant app in our store. Highly recommend to anyone trying to increase profits by setting shipping rates for every product.

This app does what it says. The best part is the Atom Yard support team who helped me to customize the configuration. I use it together with their other app Local Delivery.

Does not work. My per product shipping charges never updated to my site/products.

Hard to use. Not recommended. Wasted 2 hours of my time.

Good app and easy to use. Would've given 5 stars but its very expensive just so I can edit my shipping prices per product! Plus see below :(

(Update)
Just had to delete, I've been charged twice, in the same month. With a 2 week overlap.
So I've been charged from 30th Oct - 29th Nov, but in the same bill, I've been separately charged from 14th Nov -14th Dec.

$29.98 just so I can edit 1 products shipping cost!!! That's extortionate.

Very Useful App, We ship to the UK and Northern Ireland however needed to set different rates based on Post Codes and based on cart values, this app handled both of these things easily and effectively. It is also very easy to manage if you need to make any changes. Would recommend

v2.0 of this app is absolutely KILLER. I believe it is still in beta, we have been testing it and it is crazy how powerful it is compared to v1. So far we are incredibly impressed - and the support is brilliant as well. If you have various different products with different shipping prices, Standard & Express shipping, would like to group products and allow shipping discounts - this is your app. It does however require some time to LEARN how it works! The documentation is a little long but I guess this is the nature of the beast.
