Shipping Zones

All about Shipping Zones and how to add or edit them.


A Shipping Zone is a group of countries or regions that have the same Shipping Rates. Within your shipping settings, you can define which countries you allow your products to be shipped to by assigning them to a shipping zone.

Once you've created a shipping zone you are able to add Shipping Rates to it. This allows you to enable and disable Australia Post Shipping.

How to add or edit shipping zones

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

  • Click Settings, then Shipping and delivery.

  • Click Manage rates on one of your shipping profiles.

    On this screen you will see a list of any shipping zones (and their shipping rates) already added to this shipping profile.

  • You can add a new shipping zone by clicking Create shipping zone, and selecting the countries you wish to include in the zone.

  • Or you can edit or delete a shipping zone by clicking the 3 dots to the right of the preferred shipping zone.

In the above example there are two zones; 'Domestic' and 'Rest of World'. Both zones have carrier calculated rates enabled and we see that the carrier providing the rates is the Australia Post Shipping app.

Once you've created a shipping zone you are able to add Shipping Rates to it. This allows you to enable and disable Australia Post Shipping. To find out how, read our article How to enable Australia Post rates.
