Shipping carriers are the services that deliver your customers' orders. Most shipping carriers let you drop off packages to them, and others let you schedule pickups from your own location. Most carriers can also pick up from any warehouse or fulfillment service that you use.
Shipping carriers charge you a fee for delivering any shipment. How you account for this fee in what you charge your customer depends on your product pricing and marketing strategies, but it is a large part of the costs of running a business.
Shopify partners with a variety of shipping carriers and has integrations with many of the major carriers.
Shipping carriers that integrate with Shopify by default
The number of shipping carriers that are available to you depends on where your business is located and whether your Shopify subscription plan has the carrier-calculated shipping feature.
Some carriers provide reduced rates that are available to all Shopify merchants, and others let you connect your own account so that you can use reduced rates that you've negotiated.
