Create shipping zones

Use “shipping zones” to manage shipping profiles, rules, and rates by country.

Shipping zone setup

Follow the steps below to set up your shipping zones.

  1. Go to Settings and select Shipping settings.
  2. Click on Create shipping zone.
  3. Enter a zone name. (This will not be visible to customers.)
  4. If you ship from multiple locations, choose the shipping warehouse locaiton this zone will fulfill from.
  5. Landed cost (duties and taxes) by default will be included for each zone created. You can choose to have the quotes “estimate only” by deselecting the “Landed cost enabled for this zone” box. If this isn’t selected, Zonos will only show an estimated amount that may be due upon delivery.
  6. Choose the countries you want to enable for this zone. If you want all countries included in the zone, select the checkbox next to the search bar. NOTE: A country can only be added to one zone. The country will be grayed out if it’s being used in another zone or if it’s not supported by Zonos.
  7. Next, choose the service levels you want to be displayed for this zone or create a rule for the zone. When you’re done, click Save.

You must have a service enabled or a rule created to save the zone. No service levels will show if you do not have a carrier enabled or a custom service level created.
