Getting Started with the uShip Shopify App

Updated

If you have a Shopify store and would like to use uShip as a shipping option, you can use the uShip Shopify App to:

  • Offer your customers real-time shipping rates from uShip
  • Send shipping orders directly to the uShip marketplace to be fulfilled by our network of shipping carriers.

Requirements

To display uShip rates, you must have the “Real-Time Carrier Calculated Shipping” (CCS) feature in Shopify. See Shopify’s support article for more information.

 You’ll need to install the uShip app for your Shopify store. See Installing the uShip Shopify App. Make sure that you have a uShip username and password, as you’ll need to sign in after the app is installed.

How Rates Are Calculated

Rates are calculated based on the weight and dimensions of products in a cart, and the origin and destination ZIP codes. Your Shipping Origin (specified in Settings > Shipping) is used as the pickup location.

Need More Flexibility?

 If your business needs more flexibility and customization in managing shipping rates, we recommend using the Advanced Shipping Rules app. Advanced Shipping Rules enables additional capabilities, such as:

  • Rating based on multiple shipping origins
  • Show/hide shipping rates based on product groups

 See Managing Multiple Shipping Rates Using Advanced Shipping Rules.
