Rate Shopping Setup

Scenario

You would like to have ShipperHQ automatically return the cheapest rates.
(Please note that enabling this feature will prevent you from Merging your Methods.)

Setup

To enable this feature:

  • Select the Features option from the ShipperHQ Dashboard (sidebar on the left side of the screen).
  • On the Features page you will see the Rate Shopping & Shipping Option Management feature and its accompanying Enabled/Disabled toggle (labelled as no. 3 in screenshot). Enable this feature.
  • After you’ve enabled this feature, click the settings icon (see no. 2 in screenshot).
  • Ensure that “Shop for Cheapest Rate” is set to yes and hit Apply.

Also referenced is the improved “More Info” option (no. 1 in screenshot) from within the features page, which will display some detailed information about the feature you’re enabling.

Notes:
For Magento, the Display Order setting pictured above will be superseded by Sort Order at the bottom of each carrier.  This feature works best with “Display Rates under Generic Carrier” enabled.

For information on how to use this feature, please see the Rate Shopping Configuration page.
