Printify Shipping Calculator

Printify Shipping Calculator makes your shipping experience more efficient. You don't need to set up shipping rates manually. It will provide Printify's flat rates during your customer's checkout.

 

You can set it up in your account under Orders tab here

 

 

You can enable Printify Shipping Calculator if you have any of these:

  • Advanced Shopify plan
  • Carrier-Calculated shipping (you need to contact Shopify's Guru to set this up)
  • Annual Shopify payment plan
Read more about Printify Shipping Calculator

Printify Shipping Calculator will make your shipping experience more efficient, because it will provide Printify's flat rates during your customer's checkout. You won't need to create weight or price based shipping tables in Shopify.

 

If you also plan to sell products from other vendors, simply import or create your weight/price based shipping settings in Printify. This will allow to display both Printify's Shipping Calculator rates and rates form other vendors.

 

We created this workaround, because Shopify doesn't allow to have both Carrier Calculated rates and weight/priced based rates.

 

Printify live rates are only available to users with Advanced Shopify plan, Carrier Calculated Rates in their monthly plan or Annual Shopify plan. 

1. Go to Fulfillment and Shipping settings in Printify and check “enable Printify shipping calculation on Shopify checkout”.

2. Press the “import shipping zones from Shopify” to import your shipping tables form Shopify dashboard into Printify.

This is a workaround we designed to allow you to use Printify live rates with products that are produced by other vendors. If your customer wants to purchase a product from Printify and a product from a different vendor, we will calculate the exact shipping rate form Printify together with the rate from other vendors.

3. Go to your Shopify shipping settings and delete all the zones you have as they are now available through Printify.

4. Create a new zone in Shopify shipping settings with all the 240 countries available and add Printify in Calculated Rates.

5. Enjoy the live flat rates.

Printify Flat Rates

How to merge Printify flat rates with weight-based shipping settings

If you don't use the Shopify Advanced Plan or Carrier Calculated rates, you are limited to weight shipping settings.

This guide is divided into three sections based on difficulty level and will explain to you how to set up your shipping settings based on what you sell to better duplicate Printify's flat shipping rates.

Easy

  • Example #1 - one product.
  • Example #2 - two or more products with similar shipping prices.

Medium

  • Example #1 - two products with different shipping prices.
  • Example #2 - two product groups X and Y with different shipping prices. A product group is a group of Printify's products that share a similar shipping price.

Difficult

  • Example #1 - three products with different shipping prices.
  • Example #2 - three product groups X, Y and Z with different shipping prices. A product group is a group of Printify's products that share a similar shipping price.

N.B. “$5.00 + $1.50” means that a product costs $5.00 to ship and an additional item in the same order costs $1.50 more.

Introduction

The first step is to figure out which products you are going to sell. To include all possible cases, we have decided to sell variations of these products:

 

ProductShipping Price
1) T-shirt from ArtGun$4.00 + $2.00
2) Phone case from SPOKE$2.50 + $0.90
3) Canvas (8x10) from CG Pro Prints$8.00 + $3.00
4) Cling (18x24) from CG Pro Prints$9.20 + $3.00
5) Poster (16x20) from CG Pro Prints$11.00 + $3.00
6) Canvas (24x30) from CG Pro Prints$16.70 + $9.00

 

We then group our products into Product Groups X, Y and Z based on shipping prices. We also assign fake weights to the products in our groups to help Shopify figure out which rate to use. This table will be used in the following examples.

 

Product Group X
0.5 lb
Product Group Y
2 lb
Product Group Z
10 lb
T-shirt ArtGun$4.00 + $2.00Canva (8x10)$8.00 + $3.00Poster (16x20)$11.00 + $3.00
Phone Case$2.50 + $0.90Cling (18x24)$9.20 + $3.00Canva (24x30)$16.70 + $9.00

 

You can edit weights in your Shopify Dashboard / Products.

Easy

Example 1

 

For example, you only sell phone cases - our flat shipping rate for a phone case is $2.50 + $0.90 for each additional one:

 

drop shipping

 

In the Shopify shipping settings you add that products weighing 0.5 lb will cost $2.50 (one phone case) and products weighing 1 lb will cost $3.40 for scenarios in which your customer buys two phone cases. This can be done for also three phone cases and more by simply adding more price ranges.

 

Example 2

 

1.

 

For example, you sell T-shirts (ArtGun) and phone cases - shipping prices for phones cases are $2.50 + $0.90 and for T-shirts $4.00 + $2.00.

 

As the products share a similar shipping price, we can use averages for one item (one phone case or T-shirt) and additional ones (additional case or T-shirt):

 

One item: ($2.50 + $4.00)/2 = $3.25

Additional item: ($0.90 + $2.00)/2 = $1.45

 

This allows us to keep using the same weight settings in terms of simplicity that we covered in Example 1:

 

drop shipping

 

The settings are easy to set up, however it won't precisely cover our flat rates. It will earn you additional $0.75 on phone cases, but you will lose $0.75 on T-shirts as your clients will be charged $3.25 for either phone cases or T-shirts. The same goes for additional items.

 

2.

 

You can set your shipping price higher in order to avoid losing money on t-shirts by simply raising the price to meet our T-shirt flat rates:

 

drop shipping

 

This scenario will earn you extra money on phone cases ($4.00 - $2.50 = $1.50), but, most importantly, this will cover Printify's flat shipping prices for T-shirts.

 

3.

 

It is possible to choose this option with products that are more expensive to ship, however, note that you will charge your clients way above the standard prices. Here is an example of when you sell phone cases and a more expensive product - poster (16x20).

 

 

In this example, when a customer buys a poster (16x20), the shipping price will be $11.00, which is accurate. However, the same price will also be charged for phone cases which would repel your customers. A solution to this issue, besides using average pricing, is shown in Example 3.

 
Medium

This is where the fun begins. In these examples we will show you how to set up shipping settings for products that have considerable differences in shipping prices. This is necessary to charge your customers appropriately, so, please, spend some time to fully understand the following examples.

 

 

Example 3

 

For example, you sell phone cases and posters (16x20) - shipping prices are $2.50 + $0.90 and $11.00 + $3.00 respectively.

 

Here you have to separate these two products, so that your shipping settings will recognize when to price your customer for a phone case and when for a poster (16x20). This can only be done by applying fake product weights that we covered in the beginning and playing around with prices and variations that any customer could purchase.

 

Variations - this is what your customer can put in their cart, namely, a phone case, a poster (16x20), a phone case and a poster (16x20), two posters (16x20) and so on. This means that you have to be prepared for any variation of products your customer might add to their cart. Variations are represented by combinations of product groups.

 

For the sake of simplicity, let's already put phone cases and posters (16x20) into product groups to make the next Examples easier to understand:

 

Product Group X: phone case - $2.50 + $0.90

Product Group Z: poster (16x20) - $11.00 + $3.00

 

The product groups are denoted by letters X and Z, which should help you to understand the following variations.

 

Product group weights from the table:

 

Product Group X: 0.5 lb

Product Group Z: 10 lb

 

This is what the shipping settings will look like for the product groups:

 

 

In this example, you can see all the possible variations of what your customer could put in their cart (assuming that customer only chooses up to two products).

 

To verify, we can compare these settings with Printify's flat rates:

 

X - $2.50 (one phone case)

XX - $3.40 (two phone cases - $2.50 + $0.90)

ZX - $13.50 (phone case and poster (16x20) - $2.50 + $11.00)

 

This shows that you can charge your customers exactly what Printify charges you, by simply using fake weights and playing with different variations. You can also do this with 3 items in cart and more, by simply adding more variations like this:

 

 

 

Example 4

 

 

This example will show you how to set shipping settings when you want to sell two product groups that include more than one product in them. For this, we simply group products with similar shipping prices and use their average or highest shipping price to define the shipping price of a product group. This is the same thing we did in Example 2.

 

Product Group X: phone case - $2.50 + $0.90 and T-shirt (ArtGun) $4.00 + $2.00

Product Group Z: poster (16x20) - $11.00 + $3.00 and canvas (24x30) $16.70 + $9.00

 

Product Group X average: $3.25 + $1.45

Product Group Z average: $13.85 + $6.00

 

Product Group X: 0.5 lb

Product Group Z: 10 lb

 

When you have the averages, simply create shipping settings as in the previous example, taking into account all the variations of how your customers could purchase your products:

 

 

Using the average method is only suggested when all your customers buy an equal amount of products in one group, for example, your customers buy 20 phone cases and T-shirts per month. In this example the shipping price will even out. IF you notice that your customer purchases more T-shirts than phone cases, you will want to charge more for the Product Group X.

Difficult

You already know the principles of setting up your shipping settings; hence this section is only called Difficult, because it works with more product groups and variations. Do not worry, because the underlying principles stay the same. Please bear with the guide and enjoy the satisfaction you will get from understanding the concept.

 

 

Example 5

 

For example, you want to sell three products from each price range: phone cases, canvases (8x20) and posters (16x20):

 

Product Group X: phone case - $2.50 + $0.90

Product Group Y: canvas (8x10) - $8.00 + $3.00

Product Group Z: poster (16x20) - $11.00 + $3.00

 

Product Group X: 0.5 lb

Product Group Y: 2 lb

Product Group Z: 10 lb

 

We create 3 groups because we want to separate these 3 shipping prices and charge our clients appropriately.

 

Let's use an example where your customer can put three items in their cart:

 

 

The concept stays the same as in Examples 3  and 4, and the main takeaway from this is how to create variations for three product groups and up to three items in the cart.

 

 

Example 6

 

This example is exactly the same as Example 5 except we take into account multiple products in each Product Groups X,Y and Z. This is the same thing we did in Examples 3 and 4.

 

For example, you want to sell these products:

 

Product Group X: phone case - $2.50 + $0.90 and T-shirt (ArtGun) - $4.00 + $2.00

Product Group Y: canvas (8x10) - $8.00 + $3.00 and cling (18x24) - $9.20 + $3.00

Product Group Z: poster (16x20) - $11.00 + $3.00 and canvas (24x30) - $16.70 + $9.00

 

We calculate the average shipping rates in the product groups:

 

Product Group X average: $3.25 + $1.45

Product Group Y average: $8.60 + $3.00

Product Group Z average: $13.85 + $6.00

 

Product Group X: 0.5 lb

Product Group Y: 2 lb

Product Group Z: 10 lb

 

Let's use an example in which your customer can put three product groups in their cart:

drop shipping

We hope that this guide was clear enough to understand how we can manipulate the Shopify shipping settings to achieve accurate flat rates.
