If you are going to sell physical products in your online store, first of all, you should think about how you will ship these types of products to your clients. The good thing about Shopify is that Shopify already has a built-in mechanism that takes care of all aspects related to shipping. Shopify cooperates with the most popular shipping carriers such as USPS, UPS, DHL and FedEx.
Thereby you can fast and easily process the orders and print the shipping labels for thems. One of the greatest things is that you will get a discount for each shipping label purchased with Shopify. Even with a basic plan of $29.99 ( you can read more about money-saving here) you can save, in some cases, up to 30%. This definitely emphasizes Shopify among all the other eCommerce solutions.
To find shipping settings you just need to go to Settings (left side at the bottom of your Admin panel) -> Shipping.
In order for you to use potential features of Shopify Shipping, I would recommend you to go one-by-one through all settings, carefully read and fill all the essential fields. On top of that, you have to make sure that you have set all products and variant parameters (weight, size, etc.). After that you will be ready to use all power of the Shopify Shipping option
During the checkout process it usually shows a few delivery options for your clients. After a purchase is made you will see the details of it on your "Orders" page. It will include the type of shipping that the customer has selected and how much it cost him/her. Shopify also gives you an opportunity to set a fixed price for specific products based on shipping zone, product price or product weight.
For example, you can set free shipping rates for all orders inside the US with total price starting from $50 or you can set the shipping price of $10 for all the orders worldwide, no matter what the products are.
Shipping with Shopify is a great and very useful option that covers almost all possible scenarios that may occur with the fulfillment of your orders.
