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

Was in need of an app that had fixed pricing for each product and this app saved the day! It's super easy to use and works excellent.

This app and most other shipping apps require the 'real-time carrier' feature to be enabled on your Shopify store. If you are paying Annual for your plan, you can open a chat support session with Shopify to have them add that feature for you at no cost.

I use this with the Printify and Printful app, and it was an easy setup. Tutorials are easy to understand and follow. Great service

i tried setting up this app over 3 days, to help with bespoke shipping rates.
It couldn't do what i needed. Shopify can't give any input on the setting up. Overtime i emailed the app developers, they took at least 18 hours to respond.
They're in Australia and only responded on their time, so i had no interaction with them whilst trying so hard to set it up.
In the end I just gave up and dismissed it.
Up to now I'm still not sure if this app is what i need, as I've had no consistent help with the set up.
Wouldn't recommend this app.

works great! Use their other app for customized delivery area. Work great in combination.

Simple, yet powerful. This app gave me exactly the features I was looking for. I needed to have both fixed rates and variable rates. But I also needed to have rates that were excluded from free shipping. Thank you for this solution.

at the very end they tell you that you need to have real time shipping enabled so it costs $14.99 plus the real time shipping charges. Don't bother with this app.

Very easy to set up. It's flexible enough to cover a range of possibilities the basic shipping table can't begin to touch. And, the support is legendary. A problem came up that turned out to be something else, yet the Better Shipping tech support was willing to get in there to help figure it out. Great app, great support.

App did not work, in the app it doesnt give you images of the inventory so it's hard to sort through everything and the search is very glitchy. I called Shopify to try to troubleshoot the issue and they couldn't figure it out either. I contacted support for the app and even though in their FAQ it states that you can't use both Shopify shipping settings and Better Shipping rates together, the app support person I talked to said I could. Bad documentation, just overall a waste of time.

Not everything is straightforward with this app. An instruction video is needed.

Amazing App, its a perfect fit for my cupcake cupcake where we need to be able to charge by suburb.

As we have a product which gets delivered on a fragile/same-day courier service the rates vary by over $40, even with over 30 postcodes loaded this is working exactly as I need.

To top it off the support was first class, Andrew was a super star who went out of his way to help out whenever I sent a request or issue. I couldn't have asked for more and would recommend 100%
