How Shopify Ships Products
Shopify ships products using its fulfillment centers located in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Orders less than $50 ship for free with no minimum order size.

Shopify offers free shipping for domestic US orders over $50 and international orders over $200. Orders less than $50 ship for free with no minimum order size. For heavier items, Shopify charges a flat rate based on the item’s weight plus $5 per item for each additional mile the package travels to its final destination. For example, an order that weighs 5lbs will cost $10 to ship domestically and an order that weighs 30lbs will cost $30 to ship domestically. International shipments use different pricing structures based on the country being shipped to. For example, an order that weighs 5lbs will cost €10 to ship internationally regardless of the country being shipped to.
How Shopify Calculates Shipping Times
Shopify calculates shipping times for orders based on the weight, size, and address of the order. The following are some factors that Shopify takes into account:
Weight. Shopify considers the weight of order when calculating shipping time.
Size. Shopify looks at the size of order when calculating shipping time.
Address. Shopify takes into account the address of order when calculating shipping time.
How to Save on Shipping with Shopify
If you’re looking to save on shipping costs, then Shopify may be a good option for you. Shopify offers a variety of shipping methods that can save you money on your items.
Shopify offers free shipping on all domestic orders over $50. You can also choose to have your order shipped via UPS or Fedex. For orders under $50, Shopify offers a flat-rate shipping fee of $5.99.
You can also choose to have your order shipped via USPS. If you opt for USPS shipping, your order will be shipped in two packages: one package will be delivered to your door and the second package will be sent to the mail carrier for you. This option is available for orders over $100 and comes with a fee of $7.00 per order.
If you’d like to have your order shipped internationally, Shopify has several options available to you. You can choose to have your order shipped using DHL or UPS Worldwide Express.
