Shipping

Integrated shipping providers

For the moment, we support six shipping solutions & providers for your e-commerce(FedEx, USPS, UPS, Canada Post, Australia Post, Purolator). If you decide to activate one of them, Snipcart will call their APIs for you and will be able to provide your customers with an accurate shipping estimate.

Please note that if you decide to use one of these providers, you will need to define the weight of your items. See the Product definition section for more information.

Go to Store configurations > Shipping > Integrated providers to get started.

Custom shipping - manual methods

By enabling this option, you will be able to add unlimited shipping methods. Each method is defined by the description, cost and estimated time of arrival, which is optional. If you omit to set the delivery time, N/A will appear on the cart checkout's shipping step.

Go to Store configurations > Shipping > Custom shipping > Custom shipping methods to get started.

Custom shipping - webhooks

You can use the shipping rates webhook when you want to handle shipping rates calculation by yourself. Snipcart will call your application at the URL specified in the dashboard.

Go to Store configurations > Shipping > Custom shipping > Webhooks and enter the required endpoint to get started.
