Shiptheory provides a flexible shipping rules engine available on all accounts.


The shipping rules engine allows you to create sets of conditions that control how your orders are shipped. Shipping rules can consist of:


Take a moment to familiarise yourself with the rules and examples below.


Rule Options


Each rule you create can consist any combination of the below, or all of them.


Like-For-Like Shipping Method Matching


If the channel you have setup already has shipping methods setup and assigned to orders, you may want to create a rule based on that shipping method. This effectively maps your channel shipping methods directly to carrier shipping methods.




Maximum/Minimum Weight


It is possible to use the weight of the shipment as a condition. For example; you may want all shipments between 5 and 30 kilograms to be sent with a specific carrier delivery service.



Maximum/Minimum Value


It is possible to use the monetary value of the shipment as a condition. For example; you may want all shipments between £10 and £20 to be sent with a specific carrier delivery service.



 

Destination Rules


Rules can also used to set carrier shipping methods based on the destination of the shipment. You can explicitly exclude and/or include countries and continents from rules.



You can also add postcodes or postcode ranges in your shipping rule. See from below how you can include all postcodes using an asterisk(*) mark or specify postcode ranges using a hyphen(-) symbol.
