SHIPPING RULES

The shipping rule is the shipping cost you will be charging the client. This will be added to their order when they order on your online store.


The default setting is a eParcel Shipping Rate. This means that your client will be charged eParcel courier rates based on their address and order weight.

You can change this.

  • Click on the CHANGE SHIPPING RULE button.


There are four different options you can choose from:

1. FLAT SHIPPING RATE


Choose FLAT SHIPPING RATE from the drop down box.

Use this option if you want to charge your customer a flat rate for their shipping. Flat Shipping Rate will allow delivery to anywhere in South Africa at checkout for the rate you specify.

ex: If you set your rate to 0, your clients will receive free delivery anywhere in South Africa.

ex: If you set your rate to 100, your clients will be charged R100 delivery fee anywhere in South Africa.

2. eParcel SHIPPING RATE


Choose eParcel SHIPPING RATE from the drop down box.

eParcel Shipping Rate will allow delivery to anywhere in South Africa at checkout for registered eParcel courier rates. Your client will be charged eParcel courier rates based on their address and order weight.

4. BUILD OWN SHIPPING ZONES


Choose BUILD SHIPPING ZONES from the drop down box.

You decide where you want to deliver by creating your own shipping zones. Your clients will be charged based on the rate you choose per shipping zone (either Flat Shipping Rate, eParcel Shipping Rate, Minimum Order Value, or Area not allowed).

You add a new zone, name that zone, and add the postal codes that you want inside that zone.

It gives you the option to add different rules to different areas.


HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Add a new zone by choosing the postal codes you want to include. Name that zone and decide which rule should apply to your new zone.

Repeat if you want to create more than 1 zone.

WHAT IS THE 'ALL AREAS NOT LISTED' SHIPPING ZONE?

This is the rule that will apply at checkout, if the customers post code does not fall into one of your Shipping Zones created.
