- Check you have a “Shipping From Address” set in BigCommerce. Without this you will not see any rates returned from ShipperHQ
- Check you have correctly specified the relevant origin/shipping group/dim group as appropriate on your products (Note: none of these are mandatory)
- Simplify the problem down to the least amount of items in the cart
- Look at the Logs under
Server Settings->Store logsand look at the “Internal Error Message if present. You can then look this error message up to see what is causing your issue
