How to Set Up Shipping Costs

There are three different ways of managing shipping costs in Lifetimely:

  1. Use default shipping cost per country
  2. Set individual shipping cost per product, per country, or for all countries
  3. Import shipping costs for individual orders using a CSV-file.

1. Default Shipping Cost per Country

The first option is to set a fixed cost per shipping country on the Shipping costs page. These values are used as a default rate for shipping an order if there are no individual shipping costs found per country. 

The set up is as simple as entering a Shipping cost for each of the countries you ship to:

🔔 Note: Currently, only fixed rates are available for country-based shipping costs. We recommend calculating a 90-day average cost for shipping an order from your courier invoices and using that as a default rate. 

2. Individual Shipping Costs per Product, per Country 

Setting shipping costs on the product allows you to set a unique shipping cost per product, per country, or for all countries.

1
Head to the product costs page here: https://app.lifetimely.io/cost/product-cost
2
Click the edit (pencil icon) button next to the Lifetimely Shipping Cost field.
3
It will then give you the option to set up different shipping costs for different countries for the same product.
4
You can add the shipping costs for different countries for the same product, as shown below.

⚠️ Important: If you do not select a country after inputting a shipping cost for a product, then it is applicable to all the countries.

3. Import Shipping Costs via CSV

Instead of setting a fixed shipping cost for individual countries, you can import shipping costs for individual orders with a CSV-file. In most cases, you can find a suitable export from most warehouse systems.
