Frequently Asked Questions
Does Shopify provide shipping?
Shopify offers a few built-in shipping options, including Shopify Shipping. So why choose a third-party option? It’s simple: ShipBob’s bread and butter is order fulfillment, and that’s that. Shopify Shipping requires you to ship out orders from your post office of choice, can require a lot of manual backend work, and can be difficult to scale as your business grows. ShipBob is built to integrate seamlessly, automate your fulfillment, and scale with your business — no post office visits needed.
Does Shopify calculate shipping?
Shopify Shipping offers a real-time shipping app that calculates accurate shipping costs to display to your customers at checkout. It’s done automatically for any product and is based on the customer’s location and delivery preferences.
How do I offer free shipping on Shopify?
Working with ShipBob can help you offer free shipping on your Shopify stores without breaking the bank. Fulfilling orders from fulfillment centers closer to your customers helps you reduce the time in transit, speeding up deliveries. This makes fast options like 2-day or even same-day shipping more affordable by using ground shipping instead of expedited air. You can also require a purchase threshold for free 2-day shipping — a strategy that led ShipBob customer iloveplum to a 97% increase in average order value on their Shopify store.
Does Shopify provide shipping labels?
With Shopify Shipping, you’ll need to purchase shipping labels for each order through Shopify, then print and attach labels to each package. With ShipBob, shipping labels are automatically generated as soon as an order is placed on your Shopify store — then we’ll pick, pack, and ship the order for you. No printer necessary.
