Multi-Vendor Marketplace for Shopify is here with another marketplace shipping feature add-on, i.e., Delhivery.
Delhivery: Delhivery Private Limited is India’s largest B2B & C2C Logistic Courier Service Provider in India. They provide the fastest Parcel Transportation, Warehousing & more. Using this featured app, merchants can allow vendors to ship their goods via Delhivery and then print the shipping label.
Charges: This feature will have an additional charge of USD 10 per month over & above your current multivendor marketplace plan.
Before You Install: It is mandatory to have real-time carrier calculated shipping within your Shopify store. This is a requirement defined by Shopify for your store to retrieve shipping rates from third-party sources, such as this shipping app.
This feature app is available only with the Multivendor Pro Plan ($45/month). Moreover, you need to enable the Shipping add-on (free) from the ‘featured apps’ section of the app.
