Formerly Vendor Shipping Rules

What is Advanced Shipping Rules?

Advanced Shipping Rules allows you to configure custom shipping rules for multiple groups of products that are combined into one shipping rate that is displayed during checkout.

It is ideal for shops that carry drop-shipped items from more than one vendor/drop-shipper and for shops with multiple products type that require different shipping rules.

Create rules for...

  • Multiple Vendors: Whether you have 1 or 1,000 dropship vendors, you can set the correct shipping rules for each one, and each of their rates will blended together at checkout based on what you customer orders. You can even use carrier rates and set your vendor’s “Ship From” postal code for perfect accuracy.

  • Big and Small Items: Are some of your products too small or too big to ship work with your current shipping rules? As an example, our app lets you ship your small items via USPS first class mail, your regular items via FedEx, and your big items ship via flat rate rules.

  • Free Shipping with Exceptions: Maybe you want the majority of your items to ship free, but you have a a few items that shouldn’t ship free. Or maybe you want to offer free shipping on just a few items for a special promotion, without needing to use discount codes. Our app will let you do both.

  • Custom Shipping Method Options: Now you can offer special shipping methods only on the products where applicable. Signature Required/No Signature Required; Regular/Lift Gate Truck; In Store Pick-up for only certain products; with/without Insurance. We’ll offer these options only when the correct products are present in an order. Read More

  • Shipping Zone Restrictions: Do you have some products that you are not allowed to sell to certain regions? We allow you to specify what products can’t ship where. If a restricted product is attempted to be shipped to a restricted region, we’ll return no shipping rate, and prevent the customer from completing their order.

  • Advanced Carrier Rates: Integrate with UPS, FedEx, USPS, and CandaPost with advanced features like: specify package dimensions for different product groups; split packages based on number of items; USPS Flat Rate box support; residential / commercial address dectection; negoiated rates; UPS pick-up type; set different ship from and ship to zip codes.

Printful Integration

Advanced Shipping Rules allows you to combine real-time shipping rates from Printful with shipping rates for other products in your shop.

Ordinarily, when using Printful’s app in Shopify, you will only be able to get real-time rates from Printful if all the items in an order are from Printful. The moment there is a non-Printful product in an order, shipping rates from Printful will not be returned.

With our app, you can now combine shipping rates from Printful with shipping rates for your own products, and even with rates from a variety of different vendors/fulfillment services.

How Does it work?

The app uses Shopify’s “Fulfillment Service” field to identify the products in an order that ship from the same vendor.

First, you must create a "Fulfillment Service" for each vendor in the Shipping section of the Shopify admin. Then, you apply that fulfillment service to the appropriate products in your shop.

When you open the app, all the fulfillment services will be listed with the ability to add rules to each one.

Finally, when a customer places an order, the app will group products from the same fulfillment service together to calculate each vendor's shipping rate. Those rates are then added together for the final shipping rate during checkout.

So happy to write a review for Advanced Shipping Rules! I received excellent tech support! I downloaded the app and then contacted support for help. The support staff talked me through what I needed and explained to me what my problem was and showed me how to fix it on the Shopify site. It was very helpful!


I'd do 0 stars but I guess they don't have that option here. Insane. I've reached out 2-3 times via their chat option, their "customer service" phone number and I've emailed them. They have NEVER responded and it's been a week and a half now. WOW. Have they gone out of business???


Fast and helpful support. Powerful tool for custom shipping requirements.


Needed help setting this up, sent an email a week ago and not heard anything back, no response, nothing. Uninstalling the app and using another with proper support backup.


Awesome App!!! Easy to use, does exactly what we need it to do, and works great. Their customer service is also awesome.. Highly Recommend!!


Super useful app, has great integration with other apps too! Thanks, www.unicorn.gifts


This app really has been a saving grace. We are running a marketplace with many different vendors. This app has so many options for vendors to choose the shipping method that best suits them including real-time shipping rates calculated from their postal code. We have vendors that prefer to ship based on total order price, some that prefer to do it by weight-based flat rates and others that want real-time costs or free shipping. All of these are options are very easy to set-up and manage. When vendors are shipping to multiple countries, you can quickly duplicate their shipping set-up from country to country with one click. When I first started using the app, I was just happy to be able to quote rates from the correct postal code, but now I've seen just how flexible and versatile this app is if you have many vendors or drop ship your orders. It has alleviated all of our shipping problems, which is kind of amazing being that we have complex shipping needs. Excellent customer service as well and it seems as though Brian is constantly working to add features and provide users with premium updates. Thanks for the app! Very appreciative!


We have several drop shippers as well as products that we wanted to carry that didn't fall under the free shipping umbrella and this app allowed us to accomplish it. Customer support has been very helpful with walking me through any questions I have. We would recommend to others who are looking for advanced shipping options.


The app is great. It offers options I haven't found elsewhere, allowing me to personalize shipping options worldwide. Plus they helped me with setup. Great customer service.


We moved from a very simple set of products in our store to a complex set (big ticket items, small items) with widely varying shipping options (free shipping, international shipping, multiple carriers). And we wanted to allow customers to mix them together in a single cart. We wouldn't have been able to do this without Advanced Shipping Rules. Questions and problems that cropped up were solved quickly and we were able to do everything we wanted to do with shipping options easily.
