How do I add a flat rate for shipping in my new Square Online Store?

[The title of this thread has been edited from the original: Flat rate shipping in new online store]

 

Can’t find any threads addressing the new online store with shipping issues- I’m trying to keep my flat rate shipping cost always applied to orders that i had with the old store, until I can get all the extra accounts and costs associated set up with the various carriers to function smoothly in the new store. The new online store automatically took away my flat rate shipping and now I’m losing $$ on orders! I can’t find where/how to instate a flat rate. 
halp!

You may need to work with Weebly directly to get the results you are looking for, but to get you started you can edit your shipping here: Store > Setup > Shipping, you will need to add a region, and then edit the region to add a flat rate.

Hey @bfcoffee!

 

Thanks for posting in the Seller Community.

 

Update: To add a flat rate shipping fee to the Square Online Store: Store > Setup > Shipping, you will need to add a region, and then edit the region to add a flat rate.

Re: Flat rate shipping in new online store

Hi- thanks Isabelle. Unfortunately, these links and instructions go to the old online store setup, and I'm looking for the new, Weebly storefront info that square encouraged me to move towards. I had it set up just fine this way in the old format but I can't find it in the new stuff.

Thanks

Re: How do I add a flat rate for shipping in my new Square Online Store?

@Isabelle_ , one of the biggest problems I’m having with the new online store is that another shipping option wasn’t carried over to the new free online store. Since I can’t use the calculated rate option (you charge extra for that) I would like to use the same option I used on the old store — $xx per order plus $xx per item. 
right now it seems you can only do one or the other, unless I missed something?

S/H Costs

This reply was created from merging an existing thread: S/H Costs

 

I am not at all interested in figuring out and adding weight for each item in my store.  Can I not simply add a flat rate fee for s/h like I had before Square switched to Weebly?  Thanks!

Re: Updating Shipping on website

Hey, thanks for asking! You may want to follow up more with our Weebly partners on their side, but I do know that shipping is in Store > Setup > Shipping rather than in Website > Site Settings

 

You can check out more here: https://www.weebly.com/app/help/us/en/topics/set-up-shipping-areas-and-rates

 

I have also merged your post with another one that has similar questions so you guys can build your answers off each other. 🙂

Re: Updating Shipping on website

Ah thank you- that worked. Finding the shipping editing wasn't an issue, but figuring out how to charge a flat rate was- it was simple with your directions. That "choose a destination" thing looked a bit overwhelming- I didn't realize it was as broad as a whole country! But it was simple to just choose "United States and Territories, select "Flat Rate", and set it. Problem solved, and now I'm off to set up all the individual carrier accounts and connect them so I can streamline and save money on shipping. Thanks for this whole shipping integration setup- I've wanted to do this for awhile, and wasn't satisfied with order fulfillment in the old store. I'm hoping this new ecommerce system helps us!

Re: Updating Shipping on website

I'm so happy to hear that this helped! We love the Weebly integration too - they deliver a lot of what our Sellers were asking for. I know it can be a lot to work out at first too, but it sounds like it really is making your life as a Seller easier and that is the main goal!!

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm happy to help!
