Setup your Shopify zones and enable Postcode Shipping rates

We'll show you how to complete your setup by creating zones in Shopify and choosing Postcode Shipping as the rate provider.


Once you've created your zones in the Postcode Shipping app, you'll need to setup your Shopify shipping settings so that your store receives the rates you create in Postcode Shipping.

To do this you'll need to create zones in Shopify and select Postcode Shipping as the rates provider.

Even if you already have your zones set up in Shopify, you'll still need to enable Postcode Shipping as the rates provider, so follow along with this guide.

Set up zones in Shopify

  • From your Shopify dashboard, navigate to Settings > Shipping and delivery.

  • Click Manage rates.

  • Scroll down to the 'Shipping to' section.

Here you will add zones which reflect those you have set up in Postcode Shipping.
Notes: If you already have your zones set up from before you installed the Postcode Shipping app, you can work with the zones you already have. Skip to the next part, Enable Postcode Shipping rates, below.

  • Click Create shipping zone.

  • Give your zone a name and select the countries that will make up the zone.

  • Click Done when you are ready.

  • Make any other zones you need.

Enable Postcode Shipping rates

With your Shopify zones setup, you need to enable Postcode Shipping as the rates provider.

  • Click Add rate.
    If you already have rates set up from before you installed the Postcode Shipping app, delete these and add a new rate.

  • This is the important part. Choose Use carrier or app to calculate rates, and select Postcode Shipping (Rates provided by app).

  • Click Done.

  • Do the same for any other zones.
    Note: you'll only need to do this once for each zone, as you're not actually adding rates, you're just connecting the Shopify zones to the rates you've already created in the Postcode Shipping app.

  • The last thing you need to do is Save your changes.
