Understanding Fulfillment and Shipping Settings
In this guide, we'll delve into the Fulfillment Service and Requires Shipping settings, which play a crucial role in how you manage your builder fulfillment and shipping within BoxBuilder.
If you utilize a fulfillment service other than Shopify, this is where you can specify which profile to use. For instance, you might have Custom Fulfillment by Shopify, which involves sending emails to your suppliers when fulfilling an order. By selecting the appropriate fulfillment profile here, you can seamlessly integrate this service with your builder.
By choosing "Default", you will continue using the standard Shopify fulfillment method. To explore further details on adding fulfillment services, Shopify offers a comprehensive guide on their Help Page here.
Note: Fulfillment Services are distinct from Shipping Profiles. If you're looking to assign specific shipping rates to your builders, we've put together an amazing tutorial here to guide you through the process.
If you find that your fulfillment options aren't visible, it's possible that you may need to grant permission for our app to access them. Ensuring the proper permissions are in place can resolve this issue, allowing you to configure your fulfillment settings effectively.
This setting is crucial in determining whether your builder represents a physical item that requires shipping or a digital product that doesn't.
Only uncheck "Requires Shipping" if you are offering digital items that do not need physical shipment. By unchecking this option, you indicate that the builder is not a physical product, and customers won't be prompted to provide shipping information.
By default, "Requires Shipping" should remain checked. This ensures that when customers interact with your builder, their address information is collected, facilitating the shipping process.
Note: It's essential to understand that variants are created for every unique bundle combination so enabling or disabling this option will only affect new variants. If you wish to update the shipping status of existing variants, you'll need to make those changes directly in Shopify.
By effectively configuring the Fulfillment Service and Requires Shipping settings, you can streamline your order management and shipping processes to align perfectly with your product offerings.
