Documentation Shipping Rates without CCS

Charge for shipping without CCS

We believe in providing custom shipping rates to every merchant, regardless of shop size or Shopify plan. That’s why our motto is:

“Shipping for everyone.”

Let’s talk a little about what CCS is and how we can help provide shipping rates without it.

What is CCS?

CCS stands for Carrier Calculated Shipping, a Shopify feature that is used to send cart information to third party carriers and receive shipping rates in return. While this is the most common way to charge for shipping, by no means is it the only way.


Parcelify Storefront Shipping Rates

Our Storefront Shipping Rates feature allows you to:

  1. Provide shipping rates based on weight, quantity, price, and much more to your customers - all without CCS!
  2. Avoid changing your plan or upgrading
  3. Bypass issues with rate merging and duplication on multi-location shops

So, how does it work?

Step 1: Enter Address Information

Step 2: Select a Rate

Customers select Storefront Shipping rates before proceeding through the typical Shopify checkout:

Step 3: Checkout

Once your customer picks a rate with Parcelify Storefront, they will be redirected to the standard Shopify Checkout. From here they can complete their purchase as usual:

Please note:

  • Shipping rates are provided as if products are shipping from the same location. For location-specific rates, you will need to use CCS
  • This feature does not support abandon carts or checkouts
