Yes! From your Wix Store Manager, you can set shipping and tax rules per destination, add a flat handling fee or include tax in your product's price.

 

To set Shipping or Tax Rules: To add Tax Rules: Click your Product Gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Manage Store > click the Shipping or Tax tab.

 

For more information on setting Shipping Rules, click here.

Note: If you have set up shipping and tax options on your merchant account, you will need to remove these settings before using the Wix Store Manager shipping and tax settings.
 

If you want to create shipping or tax rules that are not currently available in the Wix online store, please post your requests in this thread.

    no function to distinguish between counties within a state?

    hi,

    i've seen numerous questions about this but the wix team seems to be evading the question of how to properly charge tax FOR DIFFERENT COUNTIES WITHIN THE HOME STATE.   if wix does not support different county tax rates within a state, i wish you would just answer saying you don't support it.  if you do support it, please explain for all the posters, myself included, how to do it.

     

    thanks,

      again, you did not answer the question.  

      the thread you directed me to does not address the different taxes rates that different counties within a state charge, and there is no place on the "tax" tab to make those changes.  i see now from the long thread of ' "tax rules not currently supported by the Wix online store" that there are many customers unhappy with the complete lack of options in this regard.

      Hello,

       

      I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. I'm afraid that interstate tax rules are unavailable at the moment.

    Pay Pal Information

    I like the fact you have Pay Pal on the site I am creating. My question: When I make a sale will Pay Pal generate a shipping label? How will the shipping cost be determined? I want to have a USPS tracking number for each sale. Will Pay Pal add a tracking number? What are the fees?

    Basically in a nut shell, tell me the step by step process from time of customer purchase to time of mailing their order.

    Thanks you.

      You never answered my question. Read it again. Don't merge my question with an irrelevant thread. Will Pay Pal print out shipping label? What are the fees Pay Pal charges? What about tracking numbers?

      I'm getting the feeling Wix is the wrong choice for a website if they refuse to answer relative questions on Pay Pal, shipping labels, fees, etc.

      Hi,

       

      For information regarding fees please contact Paypal.

       

      As for shipping, please note Paypal doesn't provide a shipping solution, only payment.

    Hi,

     

    When I set my shipping rules based on weight and check out items, it does not apply the rules based on the weight. It always pick up only the first rule by weight.

     

    e.g. 0-2 lb -> 5

    2-5 lb ->10

     

    If I select something that weighs 2.5 pounds, the shipping amount that is applied is still $5 instead of $10.

    Please help!

      Please note that you have not configured your weight settings on the right place. It should be here:

       

       

      But instead, you inserted it here:

       

       

      You have manually inserted the words "pounds" with having the system "realizing" these are weight values.

       

      Please insert the weight in the proper location.

      Currently you cannot configure different weight ranges per product.

    I would like to have the option of offeing a shipping calculator that automatically calculates the shipping for the person based on where they live.  I've seen it on other websites where the customer selects there state from a drop down box and the shipping is then addeded to the cost.  Is there anyone to do this.  or can someone please help me with shipping charges.  I have not been able to launch this website because I've been stuck trying to figure out the best way to do this, so that its fair and easy enough to figure out for my customers.  In additon, the merchandise is being shipped from NJ, so do i just charge NJ residents 7% tax and every other state 8.25% or whatever NY state tax is, I'm a bit confused on this as well.  I'm thinking I have to set up special rules for all the states within the U.S.  Please HELP!!

      Adding shipping and tax rules is optional. 

      As explained in the above 'Best Reply' you will need to select to add these features

       

      If you have already set these settings up via your merchant account, there will be a double charge for the shipping and taxes. For this reason, If you wish to have shipping and tax rules via the online store please first remove these settings from the merchant account. 

       

      If this is not what you were referring to, please reply and clarify what exactly is the issue you're experiencing.

    Hi there,

    In my store, I want to have the following shipment feature rather than simply rules of post (price/weight). Can I? I expect my shipment option looks like this:

    standard post ($11)

    delivery by our team ($5)

    pick-up (free)

    Please help with it ASAP.

    Thanks!

      Unfortunately, at the moment Wix doesn't offer this option. However, you can try and set your shipping rates through your merchant account, which might offer this option. Note that if you use this suggestion, you will need to remove the shipping rules from Wix.

    I visited a site that had a shipping calculator-

    Shipping rates calculator-  fill in info to-

    Country         State       Zip/postal Code      click on Button  "Calculate Shipping Rates"

    Then a drop down list of shipping rates appear-  listing USPS and UPS rates.  (7 shipping rates available for the Zip, State and Country)  

    Is this a special app? one has to add to website?  It looked like the website, this was on, was built on Shopify.

    The products I sell are all different sizes and weights and the way the shipping calculator works on Wix seems impossible to create.

    I am hoping I am just not understanding something.  Please help.   I have loved everything else about setting up my e-commerce site so far.

    Thank you,

    Do you have any suggestions for different shipping rates depending on quantity (not weight, or price).

     

    I want the first item to be a fixed amount

    and additional items to be a fixed amount.

      Dear Jess,

       

      The merchant account is the account you use on your Wix online store to make the transactions of your store (Paypal for example).

       

      Some merchant accounts may offer the feature you're looking for. We recommend to check our online store merchant account providers - PayPal, WebMoney and Skrill - for such a feature.

      Kind regards, Or - Wix Support Team.

    Hello, I would like to know, if possible to add one decimal place in weight. Kilogram is too big constant for our products. We sell goods in weights about grams. One item can have several grams od 20. or 30 or 150g. So and shipping fees are also calculated so.

    In case of shipping rule I need to create one "free of charge" - lets say, for goods with weight of 1g. I plan to use is for selling the "gift vouchers" with weight 1g and it means there will be no shipping fee.

    So, the three decilmal places should be fine od add a new unit: grams

      Yes, it's possible to set weight up to 2 decimal places (e.g 0.15).

      At the moment it is only possible to use products that weigh between 10g and up.

    I ship my product using flat rate. I can't seem to find a way to change the shipping amount with every order they order. SO for instance if they only order 1 set of 6 lollipops, the shipping will be 6.25 If they order 2 or more sets I need the shipping amount to increase. I am so confused.. Your store making should be a lot more explanatory on shipping.. Help....

    • Tom Wix Team

      Replied by Tom April 18, 2014

      You can set the Shipping Calculation method to be by Price Range, or by Weight Range:

      Let's say for example that I select Price Range, and that theoretically a single lollipop costs 0.99$, and a 6 pack costs $1.50. If I define the following Shipping Rule:

      Then adding one lollipop ($0.99) is inside the first price range - and thus the Shipping Fee will be $6.25. If I add a 6 pack of lollipops ($1.50) or 2 single lollipops ($0.99x2=$1.98) - in both cases the prices are within the second price range, and thus the Shipping Fee will be $10, as I've defined it. You can do the exact same thing for Weight Ranges instead.

       

      I hope this helps make things more clear. You can find more information about adding Shipping and Tax rules to your Store here.
