Item specific shipping options


Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.survivaltechniques.co.uk/shop

Hello!

I am moving my shop over to Squarespace from BigCartel and can't find a way to register the correct shipping for my products. 

I sell a range of paintings, prints and canvas bags which have a big range of shipping prices, ie a painting is going to cost a lot more to send than an A3 print. I can only find an option to set shipping rates by weight or flat rate, neither of which work as customers often buy a combination of products, which each need to be packaged separately. 

Is there a way I can set a shipping rate per product?

I used to have my shop with BigCartel and it was very easy to set a specific shipping rate for each product. The current options in Squarespace are driving me crazy with how inflexible they are.

Any help would be much appreciated. 

This is my shop: https://www.survivaltechniques.co.uk/shop

you would think with all the people asking for it they would implement item specific shipping. It's probably one of the most common requests I see in these forums and they're losing a lot of business

Just adding to this thread. I'm in the same position - selling very different items of size and weight. Would love if Squarespace could help out with selecting product-specific shipping. To give

And us too! It is making the whole ecommerce facility unworkable!

No.  As you said, you can determine shipping costs by weight or set flat rates; you cannot set them per product.

I know several people who have left squarespace because of that and I'm looking at different options myself. Disappointing to say the least

To give the developers an example of how this is difficult for vendors, particularly at this time:

Australia Post became rather unreliable during lockdown in Melbourne. So it was important to me to be able to arrange a free click and collect option for those who were able to (within the 5km lockdown zone). during a print sale. I also think that if it's possible, this is a more environmentally-friendly option so I can deliver on bike or people pick up from me personally.

Some people unexpectedly used the free click and collect option on a totally different product option (zines) - people well outside the 5km zone, who I had no choice but to to post out to. I wore the very small cost of postage, but I think that if Squarespace could see how awkward this is, they could hopefully dream up a better solution for the Shop section than this.

Thank you - Rebecca S
