Set up Advanced Shipping Rules app

Set up multiple shipping methods in your Shopify store using the Advanced Shipping Rules app.

Advanced Shipping Rules is an app that gives you a seemingly endless list of shipping options you can choose. The best part is they enable you to fetch rates directly from Gooten and set up the shipping for your store in a matter of minutes!

To start using this app, please follow the steps below: 

  • Go to the Shopify app store and install both Gooten and Advanced Shipping Rules apps. 

  • Create products in the Gooten Hub and publish them to your store (you can see how to do that in this article)

  • Once you’ve created the products, Gooten will automatically create a fulfillment service "Gooten" and automatically assign all Gooten products to it

  • In the Advanced Shipping Rules app, go to Sync tab, and click Sync Fulfillment Services

  • On the main page of the app, you'll now see a section for Gooten, where you can manage the rates from Gooten. Gooten's rates will automatically be there.

If you don’t want to use all of the rates Gooten is offering (and we usually offer Standard and Expedited, while Overnight is also an option for a limited number of products), you have an option of disabling the ones you don’t need by following these steps:

  • In the Advanced Shipping Rates app, next to the Gooten group, click Edit Rates

  • Edit the rate you want to disable

  • In the top right there is a red link Disable Method, click it

  • Click Save

The method will still appear in the methods list (in your store’s backend), but you'll now see an orange Disabled badge next to it and the customers won’t see it as an option. 

Additionally, you can change the rate title, add a percentage or flat rate mark-up (use a negative value to mark-down) and add a free shipping override if you’d like.

Once you’ve made all of the changes you want, you’re ready to start selling!
