Shipping with Square Online

There are many factors to consider when deciding how you want to ship your items – item weights, packaging expenses and courier services and fees, to name a few.

There are five other shipping rate types to choose from:

  1. Flat Rate

  2. Free Shipping

  3. Order Weight

  4. Order Total

  5. Item Quantity

Regardless of which option you choose, there are three fundamental steps to the process:

  • Add a shipping address (the location from where you are dispatching).

  • Set up the destination regions that you will deliver to.

  • Decide how you want to charge shipping and set up rates for each region.

Once you’ve completed the setup, your customers will see the appropriate rates for the address they enter at checkout. If you’ve added more than one rate for their area, they can choose the one they prefer. You can also set a backup rate to make sure you won’t have to pay out of pocket if you receive an order that falls outside the criteria you set.
