Adding Product Shipping Classes

Shipping classes can be used to group products of similar type and used by some shipping methods, such as Flat Rate Shipping, to provide different rates to different classes of product.

With shipping classes and Flat Rate Shipping, it’s possible to create different flat rate costs for different product types, like bulky items and small items.

*Shipping classes are used to group products – they are not used directly to offer shipping rates to customers. 

Assign Shipping Classes to Products

To apply Shipping Class rates to a specific class of products (e.g., bulky or heavy items), you need to assign them.

 Go to the Seller Dashboard > “Products”.

Select the product, and Edit.
