No matter how large or small your eCommerce business is at the moment, there’s no denying that you could use more time in your day to help improve it. Shipping and fulfillment, while very much the backbone of any successful eCommerce operation, is often also one of the most time-intensive aspects of running an eCommerce business.

At ClickShip, our shipping and fulfillment tools are a point of pride, and we continue to develop and refine those tools to help streamline every aspect of your eCommerce shipping strategy.

Our Shipping Rules have been a feature for some time, but like you, we weren’t content to simply release something and leave it at that. With that in mind, we are thrilled to introduce our all-new, more robust Advanced Shipping Rules feature!

 

What Are Shipping Rules?

ClickShip’s shipping rules are a series of if/then statements that let you automate how and where orders from your storefront or marketplace are fulfilled.

When you receive an order on ClickShip, it will recognize any variables you set, and automatically apply the rules to your booking.

With our new Advanced Shipping Rules, ClickShip users get access to more rule variables, unlimited rules across all your sales channels, and a redesigned, intuitive UI.

 

What Makes Advanced Shipping Rules Different from Basic Shipping Rules?

While ClickShip’s Basic Shipping Rules offer eCommerce professionals the ability to create a series of linear automated rules for order fulfillment, Advanced Shipping Rules takes that concept and expands upon it to offer a more robust experience.

This is done through two main differences: more variables and stacking variables.

Basic Shipping Rules offers users a series of four “If” conditions and five “then” conditions, each of which can be used once per rule.

By comparison, not only do Advanced Shipping Rules unlock double the number of variables you can choose, they also give you the ability to stack those variables within a single rule.

This added flexibility opens up the opportunity for you to craft thousands of rules to custom-tailor your order fulfilment to meet your business needs!
