Let’s see how the seller can manage Shipping from his/her end.
Enable Shipping From Seller End
Once admin will enable the shipping option on his end, the seller can see the option of Shipping Configuration in his menu.
Now, Seller will have to configure shipping by selecting the shipping method from shipping configuration.
If the admin selects Country-wise Shipping for the Sellers:
Visiting the Shipping Configuration section of the Seller Panel, the seller has to enable the Shipping Method first.
Once enabled, Seller will click on the “Range Details” button and proceed to add Shipping ranges on the basis of Price or Weight of the Product. Seller needs to set at least one range for the selected shipping method.
By Clicking on view button in front of the Shipping method we can add countries & can edit/ delete the states and with viewing range details.
Clicking on Range details, the pre-existing ranges can be edited and new range can be added.
The range is decided on two bases:
Price of the Product
The weight of the Product
Seller will set the shipping ranges from here:
After adding the Shipping ranges, the seller can now proceed to add countries.
By clicking on Edit button we can separately set the shipping charges to state wise and can also enable/disable the particular state for shipping.
Now, Seller will select the Country and add shipping costs for each range added by the seller.
This way, Sellers can set country-wise shipping.
Zone Wise Shipping
In this feature, Admin can create the zones and add countries in that zone, based on which the sellers will set prices.
Zone here can be any name given to a group by admin, in which admin adds up countries which will have the same range and prices. This feature is for all those who never wanted to set the shipping country wise.
