  • Shipping calculations with Drop-shipping

    For those of you who have had products drop-shipped - what are some of the best ways to handle shipping costs for orders when having products drop-shipped from different parts of the country?

    The only options I can think of would be to either come up with an average shipping amount and then add that as a fixed shipping cost per product or base shipping costs on order total or calculate shipping later.

    With our current store, we use a fixed amount based on order total. But that won't work for us with our new store.

    I would love to see a feature on 3DCart that would make this simpler.

    Any ideas or feedback would be appreciated.

    use the distrubutor tool and it will base shipping costs from the location of the products, not the location of your store.

      Thanks. We are setting up a new store and never needed to use the distributor functionality - so I never even knew that existed.

      That's great news! Thanks again.
