Adding a percentage or fixed price adjustment to rates

Learn how to adjust your rates, by percentage or fixed price, to allow for packaging costs, handling fees, or to create a discount.

If you’re using the Australia Post Shipping app in your Shopify store you might find you need to add a price adjustment to rates. For example, if you want to account for the cost of your packaging, or if you want to offer a discount on shipping fees. Adding a markup or adjustment to your carrier rates is very simple, follow this video or read the guide below.

How to adjust your rates:

  • Go to your Shopify admin. For example: yourshopname.myshopify.com

  • Click Settings, then Shipping and delivery.

  • Choose Manage rates for the appropriate shipping profile.

  • Scroll down to the 'Shipping to' section, and find the rates you wish to edit.

  • Expand the 3 dots to the right of the rate and choose Edit.

Hint: if you can't find the rate you'd like to adjust look for a 'Carrier and app rates' tab in the 'Shipping to' section. Australia Post Shipping rates can become hidden when there are Shopify default rates also.

  • Add your rate adjustments in the 'Handling fee' field, it could be a positive or negative number. You can also choose to apply an adjustment by percentage or by flat rate.

  • Click Done and you’ve successfully modified your rate. 

  • Make sure to save your changes, click the Save button to the right.
