Shipping Rules

Automation removes the need to perform manual, repetitive tasks by automating your shipping process and workflows. You can use these to set predefined rules that assign your preferred carrier for particular types of shipments.

Create shipping rules

  1. Navigate to the Shipping rules setting in and click on the “New automation rule” button towards the top right.

If you have multiple shops ensure the correct shop is selected that you want to create the rule for.

  1. Enter the country or countries that this rule will apply to. If you do not need to add a Condition, click “Next.”

Each carrier has their own service offering which can differ per country meaning the more countries added to a rule there’s a possibility that you will see fewer services available in the next step
