Set up Shipping Settings and Regions

Shipping templates let you create your shipping settings across several products at once (default service levels, shipping regions, transit times, and shipping rates). You may create up to 20 shipping templates for specific groups of SKUs.

Before you create a template, verify that your default shipping address is accurate and make sure you understand the requirements.

  1. From the Settings menu, click Shipping Settings.
  2. Verify your Default Shipping Address is correct before creating a new shipping template.
  3. On the Shipping Templates tab, click Create New Shipping Template.
  4. Click Create a new shipping template., and click OK.
  5. Enter the template name (for example, "Free Shipping").
  6. Choose the rate model for your shipping rates:
    • Per Item/Weight-Based, or
    • Price Banded
  7. Edit the template as needed.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Assign SKUs to the shipping template.
