Before you set up shipping on your Shopify store, you need to add integral information


To set up Shipping on your Shopify store you need to go to the Shipping page in your Shopify admin and update certain information about your business.


To go to the Shipping page, click on Settings and then choose ‘Shipping’.


Once you select Shipping, you’ll need to fill out the Shipping Origin Address.


In case you ship your products directly from the warehouse or any other location besides your store’s main office, you can mention a separate shipping origin to ensure that your calculated shipping rates and taxes are accurate.


Steps to add your business’s shipping origin:

  • From your Shopify admin, go to ‘Settings’ and then select Shipping
  • In the ‘Shipping Origin Section’, select Edit address
  • Type the address of the location that you will be shipping your products from, and then click ‘Save’.

The next step is to add a package type.

Choose Settings from your Shopify Admin, and then click Shipping.

Within the Packages section, select Add Package

In the dialogue box, fill in the required details about the package type.

Certain delivery companies have strict restrictions about the size of packages that can be used for shipping products. A notification about applicable size restrictions will be shown on the dialog when you create a new package type.

Tip: If your store is located in the US, then you can add USPS flat rate packaging.  

Please note, advertised box dimensions may refer to the inside of the product packaging, so it’s essential for you to measure the outside dimensions of your boxes.
