What We'll Cover

Understanding the Store Checkout Process

With Rates at Checkout, you will be able to show real-time shipping options to your customers during the checkout process in your store. 

To do this, make sure Rates at Checkout is enabled on both Easyship and in your Store Settings. 

Once Checkout is enabled and added to your store, users will be presented three rates by default. These shipping rates are the cheapestfastest, and best value options at the checkout.

If you wish to change the shown couriers, please see our article on shipping rules. 

Also, make sure that you upload all your products to the Easyship Products feature to make sure that correct rates are displayed during checkout!

Please note: To enable Easyship Checkout with Shopify, you need to have 3rd party calculated rates enabled on your account. 3rd Party Calculated rates are included in all annual plans and Shopify Advanced. Or it can be added to any plan manually as an additional add-on by Shopify support if you contact them directly.

Once enabled, you will be able to edit your settings by clicking the Settings button.

Tax & Duty Settings

With Rates at Checkout, you will be able to show real-time shipping options to your customers during the checkout process in your store. 

To do this, make sure Rates at Checkout are enabled on both Easyship and your store. 

Please note that any settings you have set up on Easyship will override settings you have on your store. Therefore, it's best that you only have Rates at Checkout set up on one platform, not several. 

Once enabled, you will be able to edit your settings by clicking the Settings button.

When you click the Settings button, you will be able to choose whether you want to display tax & duty information at your store checkout. You can also set up free shipping.
 

Free / Discounted shipping settings

As international shipping can be costly, a best practice is to set a limit when offering free/discounted shipping. This will help you avoid paying unexpectedly high shipping costs while at the same time, still rewarding customers who spend over a certain amount at your store by offering them discounted shipping rates. 

You can enable free shipping on Easyship under your store settings in checkout settings under "Connect" in your dashboard.

In the settings, you can choose a name for your settings, which will be displayed on the main page if you have several different free shipping options. 

You can choose which countries this setting should apply to. By default, the feature will have selected all countries. But you can also limit this to specific countries. 

Minimum Order Price will decide on the basket value for free shipping to apply. Please note that this does not take into consideration any voucher-codes used. 

Maximum Shipping Discount will set a limit on how much you wish to discount the least expensive option with. Meaning if you have certain destinations or orders which cause the cost of shipping to be high you can have a threshold to limit the discount. 

Pickup Fees

Some solutions that we work with charge a separate fee for pickup. You have the option to pass this fee on to your customer. Currently, this is only Applicable for US accounts.

The default setting for this feature is to pass all pickup fees to your customer. It's also useful to note that if you keep this setting, it will apply to all future solutions with pickup fees that are added to the Easyship platform.

If you don't like the default setting, you can simply choose the couriers that you would like to do this for, or turn off the setting and cover these fees for the customer. 

To access this feature, go to Connect > Your Store's Name > Features > Settings button
