Purpose: In this article we explain how to create and publish a configuration for the Sendcloud Checkout feature. You can learn more about the checkout feature here.
Create a Checkout configuration
There are five steps involved in setting up your Checkout page:
- Install the checkout feature for WooCommerce
- Create a delivery zone
- Set up your shipping methods (Standard, Same day or Nominated day)
- Publish your checkout
- Add pricing
This article will cover how to create a delivery zone and publish a checkout configuration. From this point, you can proceed to set up your desired shipping methods and add pricing.
You can begin by clicking the Checkout tab at the top of your Sendcloud panel.
Step 1: Delivery zones
It’s time to configure your checkout by creating delivery zones. Within each delivery zone you can add multiple delivery methods which will only be shown for customers with an address in that zone. For example, if you create a delivery zone for Germany, any customer who inputs a German delivery address when placing their order will see the delivery methods you configured for that specific zone.
While you're editing your delivery zone, all the changes you make will be automatically saved as draft until you're ready to publish your checkout.
How to set up a delivery zone:
- Login to your Sendcloud panel
- Navigate to the Checkout tab
- Your integration should appear under the section Not configured
- Click the
- Click the
New delivery zonebutton
- Choose the country of delivery* for which you want to set up a delivery zone from the drop down menu
Once you've created a delivery zone, you can choose what kind of delivery options you want to offer to your customers. *If you have an active sender address saved in your Sendcloud account details for a delivery zone, you can choose from any of the three delivery methods. If you don't have an active sender address in the delivery zone, you will only be able to create a standard delivery option.
- To begin configuring, click

If you've set up your Standard, Nominated or Same day shipping options, it's time to publish your checkout so it's live on your webpage for your customers. You can edit, delete and publish your checkout configurations directly from the Checkout tab in your Sendcloud panel.
