Step 2. Set up your shipping rule
When you are logged in to Sendcloud, go to Settings > Shipping Rules
Click on Create new to set up a shipping rule. By installing the correct rules you can automate your entire shipping process. For example, it is possible to link a certain shipping method to a 'checkout shipping method' name. Or you can add an insured value to shipments that are above a certain value.
Examples of Smart Shipping Rules:
In order to give you an idea of what smart shipping rules can do for you, here are some examples.
- Match a shipping method to a check-out shipping method name: When shop checkout shipping method is letter post AND to country is Netherlands > Ship with PostNL Mailbox Parcel Extra 0-2kg
- When shipping an expensive product: If item name contains Macbook > insure shipment by 1000€
- When shipping an extra large product: If item name contains carpet AND to country is Netherlands > Ship with DHL Europlus
- Shipping to foreign countries: If to country is United Kingdom AND weight is less or equal than 5kg > Ship with UPS standard 3-6kg
Please note that the Small Shop subscription only allows up to 5 shipping rules. All other plans have unlimited shipping rules.
