1. About shipping method

Shipping method refers to how you ship / deliver your products to your customers and how much you will be charging. Different method can be different in terms of:

Courier service provider ( PosLaju, Skynet, FedEx, etc. may refer here )
Calculation method ( by weight, by item quantity, etc. )
Rate ( RM7 per kg, RM5 per item, etc. )

2. Create zone

Step 1 : Before creating shipping methods, you need to create your shipping areas which we call zones. You can separate your zones by countries/states/zip codes, as you prefer.

Step 2 : Go to EasyStore Admin > Settings > Shippings > Add shipping zone



Step 3 : Name this zone and select the country this zone belongs to.



Step 4 : Once a country is selected, you will be prompted to further select sub-regions ( by zip codes or states ).

💡 One zip code can be used in multiple zones. You can get your zip codes here. However, the state can only be used in one zone.

Type in zip code - define your zone by manually inserting zip codes



Select from list - define your zone by selecting from the list of states



3. Set up shipping method for each zone

💡 One zip code can be used in multiple zones. You can get your zip codes here. However, the state can only be used in one zone.



Step 1 : Fill in the settings for this shipping method. You may refer to the links below for the setting guide for each shipping method :

Shipping methods (Based on weight)
Shipping methods (Based on item quantity
Shipping methods (Flat rate per item)
Shipping methods (Flat rate per order)

Step 2 : Save and done. You may now proceed to create the next zone (if applicable).
