Add shipping fees (add-on items)

You can add shipping fees to your add-on items after you set them up. For more information about adding shipping fees, see Set Up Shipping Fees in the Getting Started Guide.

Add a base shipping fee (pre-orders)

If you have a pre-order store, you can charge a base shipping fee to cover packaging costs. The base shipping fee applies to every pre-order regardless of the items purchased. If you charge a shipping fee for an individual item and a base shipping fee, the fees are added together.

To add a base shipping fee to your pre-order store:

  1. On the menu on the left, click Pre-orders.
  2. Under Base Shipping Fees, click Add New Shipping Fee or Add EU Shipping Fees.
  3. For non-EU countries, choose the country you want to ship to and enter the shipping fee.
    or
    For EU countries, in the dialog box that appears, enter the shipping fee for all EU countries. You can customize the amount and remove countries after setting up the fee.
  4. Click Save Pre-order Settings.
