How It Works
The basics on how the app works
First, you divide your products into fulfillment services and product groups.
Fulfillment Services are 3rd party dropship vendors, external fulfillment centers, print on-demand providers, etc. and are represented by the tabs at the top. ( Your own products are automatically set a fulfillment service "My Products" )
Each fulfillment service has a default product group to assign rates to. You can also create additional product groups within each fulfillment service.
Add shipping methods to each product group
When only products from this group are in an order.
All the methods you add to that group/zone will appear at checkout
When products from other groups are in an order.
Instead of showing all the methods, the app will add together the preferred methods selected for each group to form a 'generic' blended rate.
The Standard Shipping rate is the lowest returned rate, $0.00 added together with the preferred Standard method from another group of products.
The Express Shipping rate is the FedEx 2-Day rate, $22.25 added together with the preferred Express method from another group of products.
We call these blended rates.
You can edit blended rate titles, and how they are calculated.
Find this page in Settings > Blended Rates
You can edit the labels for blended rates based on the shipping zone.
You can also add 'Blending Rules' to discount or make certain products ship free when calculated together, using a variety of criteria.
