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

Been using this app for years and it has been great. Ran into some issues with the new way I wanted to ship and they were quick and eager to help! Now I have all my shipping rates and discounts setup perfectly! Thanks so much Peter!

Better Shipping is the perfect app for all your shipping needs. The flexibility of the app give you such freedom and allowing my business to expand the shipping into different countries. The app also gets updated with extra highly beneficial features so you get even more for your subscription which is already excellent value.

On a personal note, the app developer Peter helped me tremendously when I was setting up my tiered shipping. He went above and beyond and knowing that here is some behind the app who cares is another excellent bonus.

I highly recommend Better Shipping!!

This app fixes the broken shipping system of Shopify, and the beta version 2 adds different shipping rates per country! It's perfect for all your shipping requirements! YOU NEED REAL-TIME CARRIER SHIPPING ENABLED! This is an extra cost through SHOPIFY and has nothing to do with this app! You will find that ALL shipping addons require this feature and you MUST have it enable through Shopify first. Do not blame the developer of this app because this is something Shopify has required on their end.

I'm so glad I found this shipping app.
I was having trouble setting different shipping rates per product on my shopify store.
After installing the Better Shipping app I couldn't believe how simple they made it to do exactly what I needed done.
It's well worth the small monthly fee.
"In my opinion this is a MUST HAVE app to handle your shipping rates"
Well done Better Shipping!!
PS. shopify customer service recommended this app to me to help with my issue.
I'm so happy they did.

LOVE THIS APP! Since we sell a lot of furniture and vintage furniture, this app allows us to add shipping per individual item. Great customer support! Highly recommend if you need per product shipping.

I LOVE this app! I've been using it for a few weeks now. When I first installed it, I had a clear vision of the kind of shipping structure I wanted for my store but was finding no way to do it in Shopify's native set-up. Then I learned of this app and how to get it (even though I'm on the Basic plan). I installed it, but was still struggling to get it configured the way I wanted, so I emailed support (aka Peter -- SHOUT OUT!!)... who was AMAZING! We spent about a week emailing, trying to figure out how to set up what (all) I wanted. Then... Peter went above 'n beyond (even more) by offering me the opportunity to try out a beta version that he felt would more easily allow me to do everything I wanted. I'm SO PLEASED to say that, to-date, I've experienced no hiccups, no challenges, found even my multi-faceted desires fairly easy to configure and set up (even though Peter offered to help -- I had it done before our emails caught up. Lol), and it's been running like a charm... Now if I can just remind myself to be sure it's all connected to new products as I add them to the store. (Some products have individual shipping rules, while others follow general overall rules.) :) If you're wanting to get more creative of even customize your shipping to better serve your customers, this app is a no-brainer and worth every (tiny) penny. (Seriously. For what you get, this app is SO inexpensive compared to others.) Don't hesitate. Make life easier on yourself!
