ShipBlink extends the option for you to set up your own shipping rates or charge live carrier fee from your customers — as they are placing an order on the checkout page, based on instantaneous temporal factors. This allows you to maintain complete transparency with your customers when it comes to shipping rates.
Customers have the power to choose between paying more for expedited shipping or lower for standard shipping. Additionally, you may also charge an additional fee (flat or percentage-based).
Live Checkout Rates are available on selected Shopify Plan
If you’re on Shopify’s Annual Basic Plan, or on Shopify Advance and above - you get to use Shopify CCS for Free, else Shopify asks you to pay $20 extra per month.
Without Shopify CCS, You can still use a ton of other ShipBlink features like Domestic & International Label, Manifest generation, etc. 🔐 Shopify allows Carrier-Calculated-Shipping (CCS) rates at Checkout to Stores that are on certain Shopify Plans listed below
