How Do I Show Freight Rates Over a Certain Weight?

Overview

You might ship orders on small package carriers like UPS or FedEx for shipments under a certain weight, but over a certain weight you want to show freight rates. This is supported in ShipperHQ using the Minimum Weight Threshold setting on your Freight carrier.

Setup

  1. Go to Carriers > edit your LTL Freight carrier
  2. Under the Freight Settings panel you’ll find the Minimum Weight Threshold field.
    • Changing this will set the weight threshold for when Freight should start showing.
    • For example: If you set the minimum weight threshold to 150lbs, then your freight carrier won’t show until 150lbs or more is in the cart.

The Minimum Weight Threshold is set to 150lbs by default on all LTL Freight carriers.

Show non-Freight Carriers alongside Freight

By default, when the order weight exceeds your Minimum Weight Threshold, all non-Freight carriers are hidden.

If you want to show non-Freight carriers even if the order total weight exceeds the Minimum Weight Threshold you can set this on your non-Freight carrier. Edit the non-freight carrier you want to show, and go to the Display Restrictions panel. See screenshot below.
