About Better Shipping
What Is Better Shipping?
Better shipping lets you set suitable shipping rates so you are not out of pocket.
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? Using the delivery areas feature you are able to set the shipping rate for individual zip/post codes.
Only send your products to certain areas? No problem! You can restrict delivery to specific zip/post codes.
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
- Set tiered (multiple) shipping prices for every product
- Charge different shipping rates for multiple drop shipping suppliers
- Charge additional postage amounts to specific areas and locations
- Restrict postage to ONLY specific locations
- Bulk update their per product shipping by product type, collection, or vendor
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? Better Shipping allows you to set suitable rates so you are not out of pocket.
- 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.

Only use this app if you have real time carrier shipping feature already on your site ! I Spent hours setting this app up only to find out I have to have another app installed at a cost of $20 per moth to make it work.
This is stated in the apps details BUT only at the bottom of all the information, I recommend this should be placed in a prominent more visible position I like the app it is easy to use but annoyed that I have had to pay another $20 per month to make it work
Really annoyed wasted many hours setting up BEWARE check first
We’re sorry to hear that you had a bad experience! Unfortunately Shopify requires that all stores wanting to use any shipping apps have the real time carrier shipping feature. Shopify will add the real time carrier shipping feature to any plan for free if you sign up for the annual billing cycle. This is a Shopify requirement and it isn’t something that we have any control over.
If you are in need of a shipping app that can handle multiple, complex scenarios, this is the one. And you will not find better support (Jess is phenomenal!) I give Better Shipping an A+!
So I played around with this app and even though it is very simple and nice interface to use, when making rules it will glitch a lot of times especially if you are trying to do FREE + Shipping Rules. Things like a shipping with a cost of $0.00 will appear beside the correct shipping option you intend your buyers to buy. If you decide to go with this app make sure to 4x check your work, your rules, go through the checkout and try different products, this will ensure you dig out different bugs and glitches. Now the staff can be helpful, but may be a little unresponsive at times but they are still good. I would recommend to use Master Shipping, as it is less faulty and little more simple (though at the beginning you can feel a little lost). Also it doesn't glitch out.
Hi! Great to hear that you found the app easy to use, and it is important to test your rates and setup to make sure it’s working as you would like. We take all bugs really seriously and we aren’t aware of any in the app. We’ve contacted you privately to help resolve any setup issues that you might have had.
