Activating third-party carrier-calculated shipping

Calculated shipping rates are determined at checkout by a third-party shipping carrier based on the details of the order. This helps you charge your customers the exact amount that a shipping carrier, such as UPS or FedEx, will charge you when you purchase a shipping label.

If you have your own account with an eligible shipping carrier, then you can connect your third-party carrier account to your Shopify admin, and then display carrier-calculated shipping rates to your customers at checkout.

Review the following table to learn more about the carrier accounts that you can connect to your Shopify admin:
