Before any customer makes a purchase, vendors need to configure their shipping methods. Otherwise customers won´t be able to buy from you.

Zone shipping

This shipping systems is based on the DHL Standard Shipping Zones. We registered all those zones on Beauty4Future so that you just have to enter your price for the corresponding zone.

Go to Dashboard > Settings > Shipping.

The more specific zones have higher priority. At the top, you will see the 11 zones based on their location. These countries are grouped so vendors don´t have to enter the prices for all single countries.

At the bottom, you will find the single countries. If a customer is form a country covered by both of your zones, the more specific zone will have priority (for example, if you set your shipping costs for the zone Germany to be 5€ and the costs for zone EU1/2 to be 15€, when a customer buys from Germany he will pay 5€ shipping costs. But if he buys from France, he will pay 15€).

Usually, you will first scroll down to find the zone which includes only the country you ship from, because you would usually have the best prices for your country, or even free shipping.  Then, you will go up and enter your prices for the more general zones.

Make sure to not leave any region uncovered, otherwise customers won´t be able to buy your products from that region.

For example, if you offer shipping to the US for 30€ but offer free shipping for orders above 200€, you would add for this zone a “Flat Rate Shipping for 30€“, and a “Free Shipping for minimum amount of 200€“.
