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 and Pixels Integration

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

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

With our app, you can now combine shipping rates from Printful, Pixels and more 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.

$49 extra to do anything useful, a cut of which goes to shopify who continue to neglect shipping tools and force users to download these ridiculously expensive apps. Anyone considering shopify should seriously google about shipping problems before spending any time/money on this platform.


Smooth app, does what it says.


Simple, easy, and does exactly what it says. It helps me to constrict a few products to US only. It also allows me a few ways to adjust shipping pricing as well. Great app.


Great app, basically works exactly how you want it to.


This app is solid. You can create whatever shipping rules you need, then assign it to a product. Then it will tally all the rates in checkout and display the accurate number for the customer. Automation that avoids errors - what more can you ask for?


Update, someone from the company finally got back to me to help install and use the APP. Thank you
Worst APP company ever! I got this app to do restricted shipping zones and I needed help setting it up. I called them several times, no answer! Their phone is not even a real phone but a google voice phone! And I emailed several times and NO reply! Just uninstalled and will be using a different APP!


I was afraid I was going to have to find another platform for my shop because of our specialized shipping but this app. does the job!
Everyone told me it could not be done but once I got this app. and talked with Brian he was very helpful and got it to do just what I needed. I can not say enough good things about this company and app.
I would highly recommend!


Great app.

I have tried 3 other shipping applications before this one which is the only that could satisfy all the needs my store has.

Support was very quick, helpful and thorough.

If you are reading this and wonder if you should pick this app, just do it!


The support is absolutely amazing. I had a great conversation and the phone was answered promptly. I have never used another app with such incredible customer service :) If you use Printful and want blended shipping rates/rules, then this is the app for you!


For those who have no programming experience like myself, this app is for you. I had sales drop off because of a shipping problem and this application solved it. Super straightforward and Brian from customer service was very helpful. It's an app anyone can use!
