Setting up your shipping grid and prices
There are four main steps involved in setting up your shipping grid.
The details of each logistic class must be populated in your account dashboard under My Account > Settings > Shipping Charges
1. Shipping Zones
For each shipping zone, you will need to activate the logistic classes you're using. You can choose the shipping zone from the drop-down.
You can download the postcodes applicable to each Catch zone, as attached to this article.
2. Logistic Classes
The available classes are used to classify the various sizes of your products. Different shipping prices can be assigned to each class.
These classes are labelled with suggested use only, meaning you can customize the 21 available to your business needs.
Examples include: Flat Rate, Small - Light Weight, Medium - Heavy Weight, Flat Rate Super Oversize - A and Free.
3. Activating Shipping Methods
Currently, we only offer 'Standard' shipping. You can still choose to ship via 'Express', but it won't yet be displayed to the Catch customer.
Select this option to set your own shipping prices, it can be found in the drop-down menu underneath the 'Shipping Zones' (under the text 'Standard').
Catch doesn't provide a default price for shipping, so the default is $0.00. If the default price is activated, you will be offering Free Shipping for the affected offers. To set a price, refer to Overridden Price.
By selecting this option, you're disabling the ability for customers to purchase your products within this shipping zone (e.g. ACT).
4. Set your Shipping Prices
For each product a customer buys from you, you'll receive an 'Initial' price followed by any subsequent 'Additional' prices.
For each additional product the customer buys from you in one sale this is how much extra shipping will be per product.
These would be applied as per the logistic class set against each product purchased.
- 1 x product purchased = 1 x 'Initial' rate
- 3 x product purchased = 1 x 'Initial' rate + 2 x 'Add. Price'
