Live Shipping Rates
Let us do the number-crunching and provide your customers with two rates in real-time: the best price, and the fastest service.
Save Money on Shipping
We work with multiple couriers to get you the best volume-discounted rates so you can pass those savings to your customers.
All in One Platform
Manage your orders, print shipping/return labels, track & manage shipments, all in one central dashboard.
Interested in providing live, discounted shipping rates to your customers, but don’t want to have to set up multiple accounts with multiple couriers? We can help.
- Shopify requires that merchants who want to install our app have [carrier-calculated shipping] enabled as a feature. Not sure how to do that? Visit our FAQ or contact Shopify to learn more.
- We recommend that you sign up for a CourierGateway account before installing our app. Visit us and click [Sign Up Now] to provide your information (remember to select "Shopify" as your "Ecommerce Plugin/Integration") and a customer support representative will work with you to finalize your account and payment information.
- Now you’re ready to click the [Add app] button at the top of this page. We will ask you to sign into CourierGateway one more time as a verification step.
Success! Your checkout page will now provide customers two choices: the best price and the fastest delivery.
Note: your checkout may display more than two shipping rates. Visit our FAQ to learn why it happens and how to fix it.
While Shopify doesn't require you to add weights to your products, we highly recommend doing so to obtain more accurate shipping rates from our couriers. If you're unsure how to do this, feel free to check out our FAQ.
If your product is missing a weight, we follow Shopify's policy and set the weight to 0.1lb when we pass shopping cart information to our couriers. Couriers reserve the right to increase shipping costs due to differences in reported versus actual weights: as part of our invoicing process, any difference will be billed to you.
Managing Your Shipments
Once a customer has selected a CourierGateway-provided shipping option and completed their checkout, you can sign into CourierGateway and use our Dashboard to:
- View existing orders
- Set up one-time pickups (if courier supports it)
- Track your shipments
- View and print shipping labels for each order
- Create return labels
CourierGateway works with multiple couriers to secure exclusive discounts which we are able to pass along to eCommerce businesses, big or small. We focus on saving you both time and money while increasing overall efficiency and visibility of daily operations.
External charges may apply. These charges are billed by the external provider and won’t appear on your Shopify invoice.

Discounter's Pool & Spa Warehouse
Since the day CDS implemented Courier Gateway into our Supply Chain process, we have seen significant increases in efficiency and productivity within our shipping department. We have also seen a decrease in our shipping costs because of the rate shopping ability in Courier Gateway. We added our negotiated rates to the already very competitive Courier Gateway rates and were able to leverage the best of both worlds.
The application is very user friendly and flexible. The ability to schedule a on-demand pickup from within the application is a great feature that reduces labour costs and ensures the accuracy of our shipments.
We also integrated Courier Gateway with our eCom/Shopify front end and saw an increase in Customer satisfaction. The app integrates with Shopify in the background and supplies our Customers with accurate and timely options to choose from.
The Courier Gateway team was very helpful and professional during the implementation phase. They were always available via phone and email. The implementation was quick, efficient and seamless to our business.
I would recommend Courier Gateway to anyone looking to improve their Customer Experience, while reducing costs and increasing productivity.
