In this article, you will get to know more about how you set up and configure shipping settings in Turis.
You will specifically learn more about:
- Setting up Regions
- Defining shipping Rates
- Add or change shipping price after an order has been placed
- Delivery Terms
To access the Shipping, you start out by clicking on ⚙️ Settings in the menu on the left-hand side followed by clicking on Shipping.
When clicking on Shipping, three sub categories - Regions, Rates and Delivery terms - will appear. These sub categories will be explained and accounted for in the following sections.
Setting up Regions
The first section you will arrive in after clicking on Shipping is regions.
In Turis you define regions by selecting the various countries that essentially make up a shipping region for your business.
A region can vary from being just one country or a group of multiple countries. It very much depends on how your business handles shipping and related shipping costs.
If you have very specific shipping prices for individual countries, then set up each of those countries individually.
On the other hand, if you have a group of selected countries where the shipping prices are the same, then select and add them as one region.
- This could e.g. be all countries within the EU.
Click on "Select countries" and the dropdown will unfold. Here you can choose as many countries you want, for the shipping region you are about to define and set up.
You can either search by the country name or scroll through the various countries, to find the country/countries you are looking for.
When you have found the country you are looking for simply tick the box on the right side to add it to the region you are setting up.
If you are adding multiple countries to the same region, then simply continue until you have all the countries you are looking for in this particular region.
The countries will be added as a two-letter country code.
You can delete and remove a country easily by clicking the little cross next to the two-letter country code.
Once you have found and added the country or countries for the region you are defining, then give the region a name.
You complete by clicking "Save" and the region will be displayed below by its region name.
If you need to add an extra country, delete one, rename the region or delete the entire region, simply click the green "Edit" button.
Setting up Regions for the United States of America
If you are setting up regions for the United States of America you get to select States.
Here you can either select all States or you can select the States that essentially make a shipping region for your business.
Defining shipping Rates
Shipping rate is the cost you charge your Buyer for shipping an order.
First things first, click on Shipping and then on Rates.
Your window should now look like this.
Here we can see the Shipping Region (EU Shipping), which we set up in the previous step.
If you have multiple Shipping Regions you can click on the "Select region" dropdown to select one of them.
If you want to create a new region, you can click on "Create new region"
The rates are interdependent on the Currencies, which are defined and set in your Turis Shop.
*You can add or delete a currency by going to Settings > Currencies.
In the following example we will set up rates for the region; EU Shipping.
Here we want to set Rates in the currency EUR. Therefore, click on "Set rates" next to EUR.
After clicking "Set rates" this window will open.
The shipping price is based on the order amount ex. VAT (up to). The example below explains the logic and how it works.
|Order amount ex.VAT (up to)||Shipping price (ex. VAT)|
Setting the shipping rates up like the example above, means an order amount between 0-300 EUR will have a shipping price at 20 EUR. An order between 300-400 EUR will then have a shipping price at 15 EUR and so forth.
For the Buyer the shipping price will look like this on the order in the check-out section.
When adding more products to the order, the shipping rates, defined previously, will follow that logic.
Defining Retailer-specific free shipping limit
On top of the general shipping rates, you can define and set up Retailer-specific free shipping limits.
This is set specifically on the individual Retailer.
To set this up, go to 👤 Users and click on All Retailers.
Now click on the Retailer you want to give an individual and specific free shipping limit.
In the "Free shipping limit" field type in the price that this Retailer will have as its free shipping limit.
Now this Retailer (Earl Abel's) will get free shipping when they shop for 400 EUR or above.
This is a great feature to give your Retailers specific shipping prices, and thus entice them to place larger orders in your Turis Webshop.
Add or change shipping price after an order has been placed
You can also add or change a shipping price specifically on an order after it has been placed.
To do so, click on Orders in the menu on left-hand side.
Then find and click on the specific order you want to add or change the shipping price on.
Click on "Add shipping cost" and a little window will open for you to type in the shipping cost.
You finalize your changes by clicking the "Save" button.
The added shipping cost of 75.00 DKK has now been added to this particular order (#000024) and the customer will be notified about the order update via email.
To access the Delivery terms, first click on Shipping and then on Delivery terms.
Your window now look like this.
You can set general or default delivery terms that will apply for all new Retailers in your shop. To do so, click on the 'Select Delivery Terms' dropdown and the menu will unfold.
Here you get to select from the most standard Incoterms.
Or you can create your own delivery terms, by clicking on 'Create new delivery terms'.
Simply just type in the name of the delivery term you are about to define and click "Save".
