Create Shipping Zones in Bold Checkout

Shipping zones in Bold Cashier 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.

Before you can set up your shipping, you must create a warehouse zone. This contains your warehouse address and is the location your products are shipped from. This location is used to calculate shipping and tax information for your customers. You can have more than one warehouse zone, but you must have at least one.

 


 

Create a warehouse zone

When creating warehouse zones, all countries, states, and provinces that you ship to must be included. If the locations are not added, Bold Checkout will not be able to generate a shipping rate for your customer's order.

Note: Stores that want to charge taxes within Canada and the United States must have a separate warehouse zone for each state or province. Alternatively, these could also be manually created as custom tax rates within Bold Checkout. For more information, please visit Tax Settings in Bold Checkout.

To create a warehouse zone, please follow the steps below.

  1. From within Bold Checkout, navigate to Shipping Warehouse Settings.
  2. Click Create zone.
  3. Enter your warehouse address.
  4. Enter a Zone name.
  5. Search and select the country or countries this warehouse ships to.
  6. Click Save.

Use custom package shipping dimensions

If you sell products that measure outside of the standard shipping size, you can adjust your custom package shipping dimensions directly through Bold Checkout.

If you decide to leave it as the default, the shipping dimensions will default to 28 x 21.50 x 2.10cm.

  1. From within Bold Checkout, navigate to Settings > General Settings.
  2. Next to Custom Package Dimension Settings, select the toggle to enable.
  3. Adjust your package dimensions accordingly.
