How It Works

Automate Shipping Profiles saves you time by letting you assign your products to Shipping Profiles in bulk instead of manually moving each item one at a time. Simply create custom Profile Conditions for products in your store, then run a bulk update. When these custom rules are met, products will be automatically be assigned to a specific Shipping Profile.

Getting Started

After installing the Automate Shipping Profiles app from the Shopify app store, you’ll be taken through the setup process which includes selecting your default Shipping Profile and creating your first Profile Condition.

The Basics

To take advantage of Automate Shipping Profiles, you’ll need at least two Shipping Profiles and at least one Profile Condition.

  • Shipping Profiles are created in your Shopify settings. They allow you to set up product-based rules for more accurate shipping rates.
  • Profile Conditions are a set of rules that, when met, automatically re-assign products to specific Shipping Profile.

Unlike our flagship app, Intuitive Shipping, Automate Shipping Profiles is not a rate calculator. It simply and efficiently moves your products and variants from one Shipping Profile to another. Shipping Rates already set up in your Shipping Profiles will be displayed depending on which Shipping Profile the products in the cart are tied to.
