1. Is Advanced Shopify plan required to display carrier calculated rates at checkout with the app?

In order to display Carrier calculated rates at checkout, Shopify requires you to opt for one of the below three options;

  • An additional $20/month on your current Shopify plan to enable the feature of displaying rates at checkout.
  • An yearly subscription for your current Shopify plan, with which you can get it enabled for free
  • Upgrade your plan to Advanced Shopify Plan which comes with the  feature enabled.

Once you choose any of the above, you can contact Shopify support to get the feature enabled. 

Note: If you have enabled the carrier-calculated rates after you have installed the app, you will need to come back and register it within the app. The registration is simple and quick. Please note, without this registration, the carrier calculated rates will not be displayed at Shopify checkout.

To register, head to App settings –> Store –> Register.

The app helps you automate the complete dimensional shipping process. You can get to know more about the packing process here: Packing methods in Shopify Multi Carrier Shipping Label app.
