Documentation Fundamentals Locations

Locations

Locations represent where your products ship from. Your locations in Parcelify correlate directly to your Shopify locations, though it is only necessary to add locations where products ship from in Parcelify.

Adding Locations

When you open Parcelify you are presented with a list of shipping locations. If none are listed or if you would like to add additional locations, simply select the [Add Location] button.

Syncing Locations

If you have recently added a shipping location in Shopify and it is not reflected in our app, click Synchronize 🔁 then [Add Location]

Multi-location shipping

This section is only relevant if you:

Shipping from multiple locations changes how shipping rates are calculated in a few fundamental ways. We cover these differences in our comprehensive Multi- profile and location troubleshooting guide.

The big advantage of using multi-location shipping is that you can design shipping rates based on where the order is shipping from. However, the downside here is that you will no longer be able to control rates based on cart total - for example, the total weight of the cart, number of items in the cart, or total price of the order. (Please contact us if you use multi-location shipping for fulfilment but do not need shipping rates based on where the order comes from.)
