Setting up Shipping Options: Shipping Rates

What are Shipping Rates?

Once you have created your Shipping Types, your next step is to set up Shipping Rates. In vinSUITE, Shipping Rates establish the shipping costs for different delivery options. Shipping Rates are determined by location (Zones/States), Shipping Type, and bottle size or weight. 

Note: While Wine Shipping Rates are required for all wineries, Product Shipping Rates are optional and only need to be completed if you plan to ship non-wine products. 

 

Setting up Wine Shipping Rates

1) In the vinSUITE admin panel, expand the ‘Shipping’ section in the left hand navigation panel, and open the drop-down menu for Wine Shipping. Click on ‘Shipping Rates’.

2) The Shipping Rate page will open in the work space. Select a Zone, Shipping Type, or Bottle Size and click the 'Search' button. 

Example: For this example, select 'Ground' in the Shipping Type drop-down menu.

4)  The Wine Shipping Rates page will open. Enter the appropriate shipping charge on a 'per bottle' basis for the Zone. 

Example: 1 Bottle x $15.00 = $15.00 charge, 2 Bottles x $7.50 = $15.00 charge

Note: The 13th bottle will be charged at the same rate as the first bottle listed, and the cycle will reset. The 13th bottle is charged at the same rate as the first bottle because wineries often need to add a new package after the 12th bottle. 

 

5) Click the 'Save' button to save your Ground Shipping Rates for the Zone.

Setting up Product Shipping Rates

1) In the vinSUITE admin panel, expand the ‘Shipping’ section in the left hand navigation panel, and open the drop-down menu for Product Shipping. Click on ‘Shipping Rates’.
