The one thing you can’t skip over when creating your online store (for a physical product) is, of course, your shipping rates. It might sound obvious but without this nailed down you won’t be able to sell online!

Tick... you’re in the right place.

In this tutorial video, I demonstrate how you can edit and update the shipping rates for your Shopify store products.

So there we have it friends, a step-by-step tutorial on how to set up your shipping rates for your Shopify store.

As a note, I would suggest popping into your shipping settings every quarter to make sure that you are charging the correct amounts for shipping. In some cases, shipping carries can increase their shipping rates and if not changed on your end, the costs can begin to eat into your profit margins, so be sure to keep an eye on it.

Also, as you build your online store, you may want to check your analytics to see what countries your traffic is coming from. If you notice a certain country or area within a country has potential customers and you’re not shipping to them, you may want to add an additional zone to your shipping profile.
