Shipping profiles

Learn about Shipping Profile, how they work and what you'll use them for.

Shipping Profiles are groups of products, zones & rates. By default, new products are put in the 'General profile'.

Setting up multiple shipping profiles allows you to create different shipping rates for items that have special requirements. For example you could create a different shipping profile:

  • for products that ship free

  • if some of your products are particularly heavy

  • if some of your products are fragile

  • for items that require a different form of transport (ie local courier)
