What Shipping Rules are available for set-up?

Created:   |   Updated:

Shipping Rules save you time by automating your process - it's really that simple. Learn more about Shipping Rules

Here is a comprehensive list of all the options available when you create Shipping Rules in ShippingEasy. 

As most shippers will set up Shipping Rules with the outcome (action) of the rule in mind, we've organized this guide listing the 'THEN' attributes first. Alternatively, click here to jump to the list of available 'IF' conditions.

It may be most helpful to determine which actions you want to apply to your orders. After, check out the 'IF' attributes to determine the conditions that match your specific orders at the bottom of this article.

    It would be great to allow OR junction for multiple IF statements.
    Without it I need to create multiple rules with the same THEN section.
