Advanced

For most circumstances, carrier rules can be created to provide free shipping based on combinations of origins, weights, prices, etc. But for more advanced circumstances, you may also want to filter by attributes (for example, the origin) when offering free shipping.

For help with advanced free shipping set up,  contact the ShipperHQ support team via the chat feature inside the ShipperHQ dashboard during business hours, or by email or phone.
