Estimated reading time: 2 min

Overview

A shipping profile is a set of shipping rules for specific products and locations. You can use the default general shipping profile for all your products or create custom shipping profiles for specific products.

You can know more about show Shopify Shipping profiles work here.

There are 2 types of shipping profiles: General and Custom shipping profile

General shipping profile

Each Shopify store comes with a general shipping profile by default.

If you want to have the same shipping rates for all your products, then the general profile might be sufficient for your store’s shipping setup. All your existing and new products are added to the general shipping profile.

If a product or variant isn’t in a custom profile, then it uses the general shipping rates in your general profile.

Custom shipping profile

If the general shipping profile isn’t enough for your business and you want to have different shipping rates for different products, then you can create up to 99 custom shipping profiles.

For example, if you sell a few products that are fragile and need more expensive shipping options, then you can create a shipping profile for these fragile products and charge different shipping rates than the rest of your products.
