This article will walk you through creating a flat rate carrier to give a flat defined rate as an option for customers to select on your front end. You would use this carrier in a scenario where you only want one flat rate to show no matter how heavy an item is or how many of those items you have in the cart.
- In ShipperHQ, add a new Custom Carrier via the “Carriers” tab in navigation, or in the Marketplace
- Name your carrier a desired name. You can change this as needed at any time.
- Once you are on the Basic panel, make sure you have selected an “Attached Origin” and given an appropriate Carrier Title that will be displayed on the front end.
- In the Rates panel is where you will set your Flat Rate Shipping amount, like $5.95 for example. Note: you can set this to apply per order, item or package.
If you are looking for other options like setting up a Shipping option where you can modify a flat rate based off of weight, price, or quantity then you will need to use the Custom Defined Carrier article and create a Custom Carrier. If you are trying to get live rates with a specific carrier like FedEx or UPS or USPS then you can follow the linked documentation to set up live rate carriers.
