Add Handling Fee to a Carrier

Overview

ShipperHQ supports adding a handling fee to the carrier. This can be a percentage or a fixed value.

Adding Fee

  1. Navigate to the Carrier in the SHQ Dashboard
  2. Decide if you want to add per order, item, or per package/shipment
  3. Enter handling amount

Handling Per Carrier

Advanced Features

We give a couple of advanced features, for the most part they can be ignored.

  • Ability to add the fee before or after carrier rules processing. This is relevant if you have a carrier rule that further manipulates the shipping rate e.g. add another 10% of shipping price
  • Set whether handling fee is still added if shipping price is $0.00 – in most cases you wouldn’t add the fee
