Set up Shipping Settings and Regions

Shipping templates let you create your shipping settings across several products at once (default service levels, shipping regions, transit times, and shipping rates). You can create up to 20 shipping templates for specific groups of SKUs.

Before you create a template, verify that your default shipping address is accurate and make sure you understand the requirements.

For shipping settings to Ritou areas (remote islands and mountains), please refer to this list.

Create a new shipping template


  1. From the Settings menu, click Shipping Settings.
  2. On the General Shipping Settings tab, verify your Default shipping address is correct before creating a new shipping template.
  3. On the Shipping Templates tab, click Create New Shipping Template.
  4. In the pop-up window, click Create a new shipping template, and click OK.
  5. Enter the template name (for example, "Free Shipping").
  6. Choose from either a Per item/weight-based or Price banded rate model for your shipping rates.
  7. Edit the template as needed.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Assign SKUs to the shipping template.

Edit an existing shipping template


  1. From the Settings menu, click Shipping Settings.
  2. On the Shipping Templates tab, select the template you want to edit from the list.
  3. Click Edit Template on the right side of the screen.
  4. Enable Expedited Domestic or International shipping options by clicking the checkbox next to the shipping option name.
  5. Select the regions by clicking either Edit or Add New Region.
  6. Within the Select Deliverable Regions pop-up window, select or deselect one or more of the regions you want to use for the same transit time and ship cost.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Set your Transit Time (in business days) for one or more regions.
  9. Set the shipping rates.
    Tip: We recommend simplifying your shipping rates as much as possible. Offering free shipping can increase sales and improve your chances of winning the buy box. Also, you can create multiple rules for the same shipping option to customize the settings by region.
  10. Repeat this process as needed.
  11. Click Save.
