Create Shipping Zones in Bold Checkout

Overview

With Bold Checkout, the address 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 ships to, you will need a Warehouse Zone for in order for shipping rates to appear within the checkout.

The warehouse zone has an origin location of one specific address, but it can be used for multiple countries to calculate shipping. 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 to your customers, please visit Shipping Overview with Bold Checkout.

 


 

Warehouse Zones

By default, shipping rates are imported from commercetools into Bold Checkout. In order to modify the shipping information within Bold Checkout, warehouse zones must be created.

When creating warehouse zones, all countries, states, and provinces must be included to ensure they will be allowed to ship within the checkout. If the locations are not added, Checkout will be unable to generate a shipping rate for the order.

 Pro-Tip

Stores that want to charge taxes within Canada and the United States will have to have a separate warehouse zone for each state/province. These can also be manually created as custom tax rates within Checkout. For more information, please visit Tax Settings in Checkout.

Stores that want to charge taxes within Canada and the United States will have to have a separate warehouse zone for each state/province.

Shipping Zones

Bold Checkout's 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 include carrier calculated rates, price-based rates, and weight-based rates.

For more information on the differences between these rates, please visit Shipping Overview for Bold Checkout.
