ShipBob seamlessly fulfills store orders with a guaranteed 2-Day Express Shipping. Using the ShipBob 2-Day Express program adds a new shipping option to your checkout that is only displayed to customers with a shipping address within the areas of coverage. This means you can offer guaranteed 2-day shipping to your customers who live in the surrounding area of the ShipBob fulfillment centers your inventory is in. The zip codes included are determined by ShipBob, using its partner carrier networks. Note: 2-Day express refers to 2 business days. 

How Does it Work?

Once we enabled the 2-day express program for the merchant. We take into consideration 2 things: 

  • Qualifying zipcodes
  • Inventory in hand

This allows ShipBob to make sure we can deliver in 2 days or less.  At checkout, the customer will see a 2-day express as one of the available shipping options. Pricing will be determined according to the cart rules that apply (decided by the merchant).

Cart Rules:

A cart pricing rule is set up to determine how much the merchant wants to charge for 2-day shipping. ShipBob offers the merchant to create rules based on Cart Value.  The merchant can define up to 3 tiers and apply different pricing for each one. 

Example

  • Tier 1: Cart Value<$50: Offer 2 Day Express for $5.99.
  • Tier 2: $50<Cart Value<$80:Offer 2 Day Express for $3.99.
  • Tier 3: $80<Cart Value: Offer 2 Day Express for Free.

Note: We only support cart value rules and we will no longer support item weight-based rules. We will not change any settings for current merchants that have weight-based rules.

A merchant can also decide to offer 2-day shipping for a flat rate regardless of the cart value. 

2-Day Setup

Currently, ShipBob 2-day express program is only available for merchants with Shopify and WooCommerce e-commerce stores. 

Note: If you wish to make changes to your 2 day program after the initial setup, please reach out to our merchant care team with all the relevant details.

You can make the following changes:

  • Re-define tiers.
  • Update pricing.
  • Rename shipping options.
