Setting up shipping is easier than it looks. Currently, Doorstep Market supports selecting a single shipping carrier. You may, however, set up additional special shipping options, such as In-Store or On-Farm Pickup or Paid Delivery, on a per-product basis.
Selecting Your Carrier
You can select your carrier under Settings -> Preferred Shipping.
Shipping rates will be automatically calculated for this carrier based on your and the buyer's locations and the package's weight.
Shipping Origin Address
Please make sure this address is accurate to where the products will ship from, as it will be used to calculate shipping costs.
Enabling Printing Labels
If you would like to be able to print shipping labels directly from Doorstep Market, we currently support linking your UPS or FedEx account directly or to USPS through Endicia. You can alternatively use an external shipping app or service, but you'll still need to create shipments within Doorstep Market with tracking info so that that your customers are notified about order shipments.
We're currently making some changes to our Maker Portal, so please excuse the clutter.
You can link UPS by entering your UPS Account Number under Shipping Settings: UPS -> UPS Shipper Number.
Unfortunately, USPS does not allow direct connection between our system and theirs. In order to connect to USPS, you'll need to sign up for an Endicia account. After signing up, you can enter your Account ID and Pass Phrase under Shipping Settings: USPS.
You can link FedEx by entering your FedEx User Key, Password, and Account Number under Shipping Settings: FedEx. You can also, optionally, enter a Meter number if you have one.
Please make sure to enter the packaged weight of your products when creating them, as this will be used to calculate shipping rates:
This is a separate field from the Weight field that is displayed to the shopper (labeled as such).
