Set Up The Shipping Information App
For any online business, especially for Shopify stores that ship orders worldwide, your visitors must know exactly what to expect in terms of shipping costs and times for their country. This will help boost trust and reassure customers they can safely order from your store!
Here's how to set up Shipping Information on your store.
Enable the app and set up the text you want to display based on the variables you need to use for your shipping method. Customize the default template and use the tags you need to display the information.
Next, you will need to add your shipping rules from Shopify by following the tutorial below:
💡 When creating shipping rules in Shopify, ensure that the currency used is the same default currency on your store. Our Shipping Information app uses the default currency on your store as the base currency when it shows the price to the visitor's currency.
Shipping rules that do not have the shipping time estimate (minimum and maximum) will not be displayed in the store!
Finally, you can customize the appearance of the Shipping Information widget.
The app can display both a free shipping rule and a paid shipping rule under normal circumstances. More rules can be displayed for both free and paid, depending on the rules you have created. If you have multiple paid shipping rules, the rule that corresponds to the value amount of products already added to the cart will show.
Additionally, you can decide which products to display the app using the Module Filters section.
