Manage the Shipping Rates you charge your Customers at Checkout

Rates at Checkout is a uAfrica service that allows accounts to set up shipping rates that will be charged to their buyers at checkout. These rates will be configured based on certain criteria and can be set up as dynamic and/or fixed rates for different service levels with other specific requirements.

For Shopify stores, the Third-Party Carrier-Calculated Shipping Rates feature must be enabled. This is available to the “Advanced Shopify” plan holders by default. However, you can add this functionality to your plan by contacting Shopify Support.
