Adding uShip Rates to Advanced Shipping Rules on Shopify


If you want to provide multiple shipping rates for different products in your Shopify store, instead of a single rate for all products, uShip recommends using Advanced Shipping Rules. Advanced Shipping Rules is a Shopify app that enables you to define more complex shipping options for your products. For example, you may want to define a particular shipping rate for specific items, and another rate for other items. Learn more about Advanced Shipping Rules here.

There is a monthly cost to use Advanced Shipping Rules. Learn more about Advanced Shipping Rules pricing here.

Do I have to use Advanced Shipping Rules?
