- PS – here’s a helpful hint how to add “Terms and conditions” checkbox to your store https://help.shopify.com/en/themes/customization/cart/add-terms-and-conditions-checkbox
Adding shipping methods
Besides payments MakeCommerce extensions also allows you to add shipping methods avoiding the need to install a separate extensions for that. Before adding new shipping methods add “TOS (Terms of Sale) url” to Apps > MakeCommerce.
Make sure you have also set your store’s Terms and Conditions URL in Maksekeskus self service portal in menu Settings > General settings.
If you do not wish to use shipping solutions via Maksekeskus, then do not add any shipping methods.
In the MakeCommerce App it is possible to define shipping methods and prices for countries:
- Omniva parcel machines (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)
- DPD parcel machines (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden)
- Itella SmartPOST parcel machines (Estonia, Finland)
- Courier (Europe, Worldwide – including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden)
- Store pick-up (Europe, Worldwide – including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden)
- Visit the shipping settings on your Shopify store (https://yourshop/admin/settings/shipping) and disable all current shipping methods. This is very important, as having multiple shipping extensions causes errors.
- Add shipping methods by country. Please note, that currently MakeCommerce shipping is designed for merchants who ship to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden.
- Add a new shipping method only when the previous steps have been completed
- After adding the first shipping method, please test it. If something is not working, please delete the shipping method and contact our support.
In checkout by default shipping cost is displayed as “Free” to customer, but in reality shipping cost is calculated in last step of checkout. To make this part less confusing for customer, in your store admin panel go to Theme > Actions > Edit Languages > Checkout&System. Filter out “free” and change “free total label” and “free rate label” names to something else, for example “calculated in payment step”.
Shopify checkout should then look like this:
- Shipping is created as a separate transaction in Shopify:
- In admin view, the order will be shown as following:
- Your customers will see the complete information regarding the order as follows:
- For the next step you’ll need to remove the shipping address from the e-mail template. To do that go to https://yourshopurl.com/admin/email_templates/order_confirmation/edit (replace yourshopurl with e-poe domain) and remove the following. This is important, because the shipping address will be added later after the actual transaction is made on Shopify. This could potentially cause confusion for the client.
If you have followed the guide above correctly, you should now have working payments and shipping methods in your Shopify store. To add a new shipping method go to Apps > MakeCommerce > Shipping methods >”Add new Shipping Method” and fill out the required fields.
- From Shipping Label Settings you can create an integration with Omniva systems to automatically register parcels and print parcel labels.
- From Create Labels you can see shipping orders and create/print parcel labels
- Failed Shipments shows shipping orders that for some reason fail. From here you can see the reason, fix it and register the parcel again.
- Free shipping rule allows you to set free shipping minimum amount. NB! This applies to all active shipping methods!
If you are selling digital products and do not want shipping to be shown in checkout, select “Disable shipping for non-physical products”.
- If shipping is disabled for digital products and product is not marked as physical, then shipping methods are not shown in checkout.
- If order contains both physical and digital products, then shipping methods are always shown regardless of this parameter state.
