Shipping is a complex and intricate part of the selling process and Soldsie is happy to provide a few options to help. Shipping can be free, charged as a flat rate, or a tiered price. Tiered pricing can be based off the number of items purchased, the price of the products, or the weight of the products. We also offer the ability to set up multiple shipping methods such as ground and express shipping which you can learn more about here.
Setting Up Tiered Shipping
1. Access your shipping settings by going to your settings and searching for "shipping" in the search bar at the top right OR follow these steps:
Settings --> Shipping
2. Select either Free Shipping OR Charge for Shipping from the dropdown menu.
- Free Shipping offers storewide free shipping on all item.
- Charge for Shipping offers a basic storewide flat rate OR a more advanced option where you can set up tiers and multiple shipping options or methods.
3. If you choose Charge for Shipping, you can either set up a basic flat rate or select I need more advanced options at the bottom right corner to set up multiple shipping options i.e International Shipping, tier shipping, etc.
4. Tier shipping creates a shipping logic that will automatically trigger the shipping amount based on the parameters. For example, the image below demonstrates how to create different shipping prices based on the number of items purchased.
