Shipping Settings

BSMe2e marketplace gives you and your vendors a powerful shipping management system. We provide a wide range of shipping types for the store and they are:

  • Shipping by Country
  • Shipping by Zone
  • Shipping by Weight

To make your shipping settings, go to Seller Settings and choose the shipping option. Choose the ‘Enable Shipping’ option and choose the ‘Processing Time’ from the dropdown menu.

Now we come to the main part i.e. shipping type. In this manual, we will discuss each of the setting types in detail.

Shipping by Country

BSMe2e permits the sellers to set the shipping costs in terms of specified countries. Note that this option will only be available to the vendors if it’s enabled by Admin globally for the vendors.

When you choose this option, you get a set of new fields as shown in the sample image. The above options will allow the vendors to set the shipping rates for specific countries and their correlated states.

See the example to understand how we have added the details. Save the settings using the ‘save’ option. 1

Shipping by Zone

A Shipping Zone is a geographical area to which you ship item. You will need to first set up shipping zones, then add methods to those zones, and lastly, rates to your methods. One can create as many zones as one may like, and add multiple methods and rates to each zone.

The shipping zones can be configured by the vendor as per the required by clicking on the edit option.

After you click on the edit option, you’ll be redirected to a new page as shown below. You will be required to select specific countries, specific states, and set your postcode.

To add shipping method, vendors need to click on the “Add shipping Method” option:

Clicking this will show a pop-up which will prompt the vendor to select the shipping method from the following option:
A.  Flat Rate
B. Free Shipping
C. Local Pickup

Let’s discuss each of these shipping methods categorically- 
A. Flat Rate Shipping
Flat Rate Shipping is a shipping method that allows you define a standard rate per item, per shipping class or per order. here’s a step-wise guide on how the vendors can setup flat rate method for their individual store.

Let’s discuss the above fields in brief:

Method title: Enter a title that displays to customers in checkout.

Cost: Vendors can add additional costs per item to this field. This can be left blank to disable Flat Rate except where costs are added for Shipping Classes. Note that what you enter here may factor into the overall cost in the Shipping Classes section unless it’s left blank.

Tax Status – Define whether or not tax is applied to the shipping amount.

  1. Shipping class cost: If you have shipping classes, the interface adds a few more fields as shown in the above pic. These costs can be optionally entered based on the shipping class set per product.

Once the above options are filled, save the above changes via clicking on “Save method settings” button.

B. Free Shipping
Choose free shipping option from the shipping method dropdown.

You’ll be redirected to the seller settings page. Now click on the edit option.

Fill up the following fields from the pop-up appearing.

Here’s again a brief manual for the fields:

Method title: This title will be  displayed to customers in checkout.
Minimum order amount : Here the vendors can enter the threshold value above which the shipping will be free.
Description: You can enter the description of the rate here.

Save the above changes via clicking on “Save method settings” button.

C. Local Pickup
Local Pickup is a method that allows the customer to pick up the order themselves. The vendors can configure the relative tax and cost from here. This is how the vendors can configure Local pickup options for their store. Select shipping method as local pickup. And click on ‘Add Shipping Method’.

Now click on edit. You will be able to see a popup.
