Set up Bold Managed Shipping

Bold Marketplace comes with four different types of shipping settings: No Shipping, Split Shipping and Full Shipping. The fourth, advanced shipping setting is Bold Managed Shipping. 

Visit Shipping Fee Payment Rules in Marketplace for more information on shipping rules.

If you have a Shopify Unlimited account or higher, you'll have access to Bold Managed Shipping. If you don't have an account that high, you can purchase the carrier calculated shipping upgrade through your Shopify shipping page found under Settings -> Shipping.

In the Shopify shipping settings page, you may have established some shipping zones and shipping rates. The three basic shipping methods in Marketplace (No Shipping, Split Shipping and Full Shipping) use these settings. 

As a store owner of a marketplace, you may want to allow your merchants to set their own shipping rates for their products. Bold Managed Shipping allows you to do that.

  1. From "Shopify Admin", select Settings.

    select settings

  9. Select Marketplace by Bold.

    select Marketplace by Bold 

  10. Select Settings.

    select Settings 

  11. Select General Settings.

In each merchant's portal, a table like this appears near the bottom of each product creation/edit page. This allows merchants to select shipping zones and create their own rates specific to their location.
