Multivendor Marketplace App for Shopify- SHIPPING

Introduction:

Multi-vendor Marketplace app has come with a new simplified way to understand marketplace shipping in the app. This guide will help you to know exactly how shipping works in the app & how the shipping rates will be applied at the checkout. Let’s proceed to explore.

Why Shipping Feature App?

As we know by default, the shipping rates set by the admin on his Shopify store will be shown to the customers on the checkout page for the seller’s product too.

But if you want your sellers to add their own shipping rates to their products then we have a featured app named Shipping.

NOTE:- The Shipping feature is available in the Pro Plan of Multivendor marketplace app. Also, to make this feature work, you need to choose the Shopify store plan which supports the “Real-Time Carrier-Calculated Shipping”.

In the Multi-vendor Marketplace app, Shipping will be set in two ways: Country-wise Shipping & Zone wise Shipping.

What to Choose?

If your seller is shipping in different countries with different shipping rates then, you will configure Country wise shipping.

In case, your seller is shipping in different countries with the same shipping rate then, you will choose Zone wise shipping as the same shipping will be applied for all the countries added in a zone.

Quick Steps

Firstly, you need to configure shipping methods for sellers by setting up the Shipping type as Country wise shipping or Zone wise shipping.

The shipping methods that you have activated & the shipping type that you set on your marketplace will be visible to your sellers on their respective panels.

Now, the sellers will set the country wise/zone wise shipping rates on the basis on Price or Weight of the product.

Country wise shipping

  • Sellers will create the shipping ranges
  • Add countries
  • Set the state wise shipping rates based on the price or weight of the products.

Zone wise shipping

  • Sellers will first create the shipping ranges
  • Select the zone (added by the admin).
  • Set the zone wise shipping rates based on the price or weight of the products.

Let’s understand the step-by-step process of how to install Shipping feature app & how it works on marketplaces in both the cases; Country wise & Zone wise Shipping.

Workflow

STEP 1: Shipping Feature App Installation.

In order to get the app, You need to first visit the Feature App section of the multi-vendor app and search for the Shipping feature app. Now, click the Enable button and activate Shipping.

That is how you can enable the shipping feature in the multi-vendor marketplace app.

STEP 2: Configure Shipping: Admin End

As soon as you enable the Shipping feature, a new sub-menu gets added in the Configuration menu i.e Shipping Configuration.

Shipping Configuration

From this section, you can view the list of all the shipping methods that you have activated on your marketplace.

Here, you can view the Marketplace shipping in the list once you enable the Shipping feature app. Clicking the edit button in the action menu, you can set the Shipping type whether Country wise or Zone wise shipping. Also, you can change the label of the shipping method the way you want to show it to your customers.

Global Shipping Configuration

Clicking the Global Shipping Configuration button, you can configure the shipping availability & shipping calculator in case you want your customers to calculate shipping rates on the products added to their carts.

In case of Zone-wise shipping, admin can select if he/she wants his sellers to add Range Details or simply set a Fixed Shipping cost for the selected zone.

You can anytime enable/disable any of the Shipping methods from the list. Also, You can view the seller details who are using these Shipping Couriers.

Clicking the View button, admin can configure the Shipping type as Country-wise or Zone-wise shipping for his sellers that will reflect at seller side.

Once You click the View Sellers button in the Action menu, You will be reaching to the Shipping details section. You can view the complete shipping details & get the option to edit shipping type, label, status if requires.

Additionally, you can view the list of all the sellers who are using your marketplace shipping to set their own shipping rates.

In case you want your sellers to add zone wise shipping rates, you can configure Zone wise shipping as well.

As soon as You select the Zone-wise shipping, you will get the option to add shipping zones in the app.

You as an admin can add shipping zones & assign countries to it from configuration menu that will reflect at seller side.

Admin Panel>>Configuration menu>>Shipping Zone>>click Add Shipping zone>>Enter Zone name>>Select countries>>Save.

Later on, you can edit the zones as well if required.

You can click the Edit button in the Action menu & edit the zones.

These zones will be visible to your sellers on their respective seller panels to which they can set zone wise shipping rates.

Now, let’s see how sellers will add their own shipping rates.

Seller Panel: Shipping Configuration

Shipping methods configured by the admin will get listed like this on the seller side. From here, the seller will proceed to add shipping rates on their own.

From the Action menu, the seller can enable/disable the shipping methods as per his/her requirements.

Clicking the view button, Seller can view the shipping details & proceed to add shipping ranges & add countries/zone to add shipping rates.

Now, let’s see how the seller can set shipping rates separately for country wise or zone wise.

COUNTRY WISE SHIPPING

If your seller is shipping is different countries with different shipping rates then, he/she has to set country wise shipping.

In the Shipping Configuration menu of the seller panel, the seller will have the marketplace shipping option in the listing.

In front of that shipping method, the seller needs to click the view button in the Action menu.

Clicking the view button, the seller will see the list of added countries. There, the seller will get the option to manage shipping ranges & add more countries.

The seller can manage each country’s shipping rates from the Action menu just by clicking the view button. He/she can anytime disable/delete any country from the list.

How to Manage Shipping Range?

Sellers first need to add Shipping ranges and then proceed to add countries to set different shipping rates for each country for all the states.

Seller adding Shipping ranges

Seller will click the Add New Range button to set a shipping range to enter zone-wise shipping rates. These rates will be applied whether on the product’s price or product’s weight.

A Seller can add up to 8 shipping ranges for a Shipping method.

Shipping Range is set based on the Price of the product. Similar to this, Seller can set up to 8 ranges for a shipping method. Also, the seller can edit/delete the ranges.

The seller can view the shipping range details from here:

Once done, the seller will proceed to select countries & set different shipping rates for each country & their states based on price or weight of the product.

All the countries to which shipping rate is set will be listed in this section (as attached in the screenshot). The seller can proceed to manage shipping ranges from there & add new countries also.

This way, a seller can set different shipping rates for different countries based on Price or weight of the product.

ZONE WISE SHIPPING

Once the admin configures Zone-wise shipping from his end, the seller will get the option to add zone-wise shipping rates.

Clicking the Edit button, the seller will get the option to add ranges & add zone-wise shipping rates.

Seller adding Shipping Ranges

Seller will click the Add New Range button to set a shipping range to enter zone-wise shipping rates. These rates will be applied whether on the product’s price or product’s weight.

The seller can view the shipping range details from here:

Now, as the sellers have added the Shipping rages, they can now proceed to add zone-wise shipping rates simply by clicking here:

Seller adding Shipping Rates

Case 1: When Range Details Tab is Enabled from Admin End. In this case, sellers can simply add zone-wise shipping rates.

Case 2: When Range Details Tab is Disabled from Admin End.
If the Range Details Tab is disabled from admin end, Seller can directly set a Fixed Shipping cost for the respective zone.
