Learn how to spare time and money setting your Carrier Rates! 🔍
- How it works ⚙️
In order to add your Carrier Rates, you need to connect your Carriers first. Click here to learn how to do it in a few steps:
Once you set tariffs for your carriers, ShippyPro will compare rates showing the economic prices first.
Is it always necessary to add my Carrier Rates?
No, it's not. Note that some carriers (DHL, UPS, FedEx, Royal Mail and TNT) automatically send the price list to ShippyPro after the connection.
For these carriers, you don't need to add any rates, since they're automatically retrieved from your carrier account.
The real rates, with the relative fuel surcharges and other additional amounts, will be shown from the system.
- How to add my Carrier Rates
For other carriers, it's necessary to import your own price list or write manually. It's an easy operation that, once made, will contribute to save time and money.
From Carriers > Connection, just click on Edit prices, next to the carrier logo on the right.
In the window that will open, you'll find all the prices, surcharges and zone settings.
1. How to copy a price list from another
If for any reason you need to connect the same carrier twice, you can copy the same price list. So you don't have to copy and paste the same list manually.
You can do it from the button on the top right corner of the page:
2. How to Add Zones
First of all, it's important to enter the same zones of your Carrier Contract.
In order to do so, you can simply click on Add Zone on the right:
Note: For some carriers like GLS, BRT, SDA, you'll find some predefined zone. In this case, please make sure that the zones are the same as in you contract.
- Clicking on Add Zone a new window will be opened. There, you can type the zone manually or select it from the list. You can then specify some postcodes or add only specific postcodes.
- You may also need to exclude some zones, for example difficult areas. In this case, click on Excluded Zone on the top left and add the relative postcodes.
Note: If you'd like to exclude some zones, it's important to insert them only after the included zones. For example, add the zone France first if you need to exclude some difficult zones of France.
Remember to always click on Add Zone on the bottom to successfully save your settings.
3. Add weight and prices
For each zone, you can then add your weight ranges with the relative prices. You can either import them with an Excel or add them manually.
- To import them with an Excel file, you firstly need to enter only the weight ranges. Click then on Download Excel to download the predefined file. You can match the weight ranges with the relative prices and then import the Excel again on ShippyPro. It will only take you a minute.
- Adding weight ranges manually it's simple as well. Add the weight range and then add the relative price for each zone.
📎 Remember that the measure of weight makes reference to the one you set when you first registered to ShippyPro. You can change it from My Profile > Preferences.
4. Carrier Options
Under Carrier Options, you'll find some predefined options for each carrier. You can fill these fields according to your contract options.
5. Handle Overweight
From this section, you can manage overweight. After setting up all your weight ranges, you should enter the maximum weight that you find on your carrier contract.
You'll then have a gradual price increase every kg starting from the last weight range you added on the previous section to the maximum weight. This value should be included in your carrier contract.
Here's an example: the maximum weight is 500 kg and the last weight range you set is 20 kg. Starting from 20 kg to 500 kg, you'll pay 1 euro every 10 kg.
You can enter a price increment for each zone.
Here you can set some additional options. You can decide to enable Cash on Delivery, Multiple Parcels or triangulations for this carrier by clicking on the relative buttons.
You'll then find some additional options and surcharges that you need to enter only if you have them listed on your carrier contract.
Regarding Denominator Coefficient, please remember to enter 4 digits.
