Setting up Rate Shopping for Cheapest Rate

Scenario

You would like to have ShipperHQ automatically return the cheapest rates.

Setup

To obtain Cheapest Shipping Rate, you first must have the Rate Shopping & Shipping Option Management feature turned on.

  • This is done through Account Settings on the bottom left of sidebar, above Logout.
  • Click the Account Settings –>Features then scroll to find Rate Shopping & Shipping Option Management and select it.
  •  Click Update.
    It is important to only make this change, selecting other things will add unwanted complexities to your account
  • After you’ve updated your Account Settings, you then want to click Carriers.
  • Once on the Carriers screen, you’ll want to look in the top right and click the Settings button.
  • Next click the Rate Shopping tab. Once clicked, check the Shop Cheapest Rate box and hit Apply.

*Note: for Magento, this will be superseded by Sort order at the bottom of each carrier.  This feature works best with “Show all carriers as single carrier” enabled.
