Create Multiple Shipping in Multi-Vendor Marketplace App for Shopify

Updated 18 February 2022

If you are using Multivendor Marketplace Shipping App then now you will be able to create multiple shipping for your sellers.

In this documentation, we will only discuss how the admin can create multiple shipping and further, how the sellers can configure them. To learn more about the marketplace shipping app, refer to this blog.

Note: You will only be able to create multiple shipping if you are using Zone-Wise or Country-wise shipping type. It will not work in the case of the Postcode-wise shipping type.

In case you want to change the shipping type from zone-wise/country-wise to postcode-wise then you first need to disable multiple shipping. Otherwise, you may face issues.

Also, if you are using this feature, you won’t be able to fetch shipping rates using any other shipping module of the marketplace app. However, you can use these shipping modules for the fulfillment process.

Case Scenario

CASE I

Suppose, Seller has 2 products: Product A & product B

On product A, let say the seller has chosen: Method 1 & Method 2
On product B, let say the seller has chosen: Method 2 & Method 3

Then in this case, when customers add product A as well as product B then we’ll get Method 2 common so then we’ll display the shipping rates based on Method 2 on Shopify checkout.

CASE II

Suppose, Seller has 2 products: Product A & product B

On product A, let say the seller has chosen: Method 1 & Method 2
On product B, let say the seller has chosen: Method 3 & Method 4

Then in this case, when customer adds product A as well as product B then we won’t be getting any common shipping method so then we won’t be able to display any shipping rates on the checkout page.
