One of the most important aspects of eCommerce is shipping information.

Do you ship for free? Is the shipping cost the same across all items? Is the shipping fee calculated according to the weight or dimensions of the product? It is important that we get this right.

Follow the easy steps below according to your target sales channel:

To Etsy

The shipping costs are calculated through a shipping profile that the seller sets on Etsy.com. There are two options: a fixed-price shipping profile (same cost for all products) or a calculated shipping profile (calculates the costs automatically depending on the weight and dimensions of the product).

ExportYourStore transfers the dimensions and weight of the products from the main store in case your shipping profile requires it.

To Amazon

Shipping costs are calculated using a shipping template that the seller creates on Amazon.com. You can learn how to create a shipping template in Amazon here or you can watch the video tutorial below:

To eBay

Sellers need to set shipping costs using the eBay Business Policies. Simply put, this is where you customize your payment, shipping, and return policies. It is important to make sure that you opt in to the correct eBay country site. Learn more about it here.

To eBid

ExportYourStore automatically transfers the shipping costs from the source platform and there is no additional step! However, if you want to customize the shipping costs when exporting to eBid, you can do so easily on the settings page of ExportYourStore.

To Shopify

Sellers need to set the shipping costs directly on Shopify. All you need to do is go to Shopify.com, log in, open the Admin Panel, click Settings, then Shipping. You can then set the rate cost for a range of weight/ dimensions and other criteria. Shopify will use this to calculate the shipping costs for each product.
