Before you set up your shipping profiles, review the following considerations
- Make sure that you're familiar with shipping zones and shipping rates. Each location in each profile can have its own shipping zones and rates.
- If your order contains products from different shipping profiles or locations, then separate shipping rates for each product are combined to provide your customer with a single shipping rate at checkout. A combined shipping rate at checkout can lead to higher shipping costs for your customers.
- You can add a product or a product variant to only one shipping profile at a time. If you add a product or a product variant to a second shipping profile, then it's automatically removed from the first shipping profile.
- If your staff member requires access to your shipping profiles, then you need to give them staff permission.
