Create Shipping Zones in Bold Checkout

Overview

Within Bold Checkout, the address that your products are shipped from is the "Warehouse Address". This location is used to calculate shipping and tax information for your customers. For each country that your store currently ships to, you will need a Warehouse Zone, in order for shipping rates to appear within the checkout.

Note: The warehouse zone has an origin location of one specific address, but it can be used for multiple countries to calculate shipping.

Please know that multiple warehouse zones can be added to calculate taxes and shipping from specific locations.

For more information on the different types of Shipping Rates you can offer your customers, please visit our Shipping Overview with Bold Checkout.

To get started with setting up your Shipping Zones in Bold Checkout, please see the following steps:

 


 

Warehouse Zones

By default, shipping rates are imported from WooCommerce. To modify the shipping information within Bold Checkout, Warehouse Zones will have to be created.

When creating Warehouse Zones, all Countries/States/Provinces must be included to ensure that they will be allowed to ship within the checkout. If the locations are not added, then Checkout will be unable to generate a shipping rate for the order.

 Pro-Tip

Stores that want to charge taxes within Canada & the United States will have to have a separate Warehouse Zone for each State/Province. Alternatively, these could also be manually created as custom tax rates within Checkout. For more information, please visit our Tax Settings in Checkout article.

Shipping Zones

Bold Checkout shipping zones will determine where your customers can order to, how much their shipping will cost, and what types of shipping your store offers.

Shipping zones can have Carrier calculated rates, price-based rates, and weight-based rates. For more information on the differences between these options, please visit our Shipping Overview for Bold Checkout.
