Builder - How to Manage Shipping Settings

Your Bluehost Builder website will allow you to set both basic and advanced (integrated) shipping management options. This article describes how to configure your shipping settings to give your customers a more seamless shopping experience.

To begin, you will need to access your Bluehost Builder Editor. From here, you will need to open your Manage Store dashboard. 

Accessing the Manage Store Dashboard

  1. From the Pages drop-down towards the top of your screen, open your store page.
  2. Click on your Products section, then click the Manage Store button from the menu that appears on the right side of your screen. 

Updating Shipping Settings

From your Manage Store dashboard, you will be able to update both basic and advanced shipping settings. 

Main Shipping Settings

If you do not enable integrated shipping, you will still be able to set a shipping rate and address. 
  1. Click the Settings tab from the menu to the left.
  2. You will see a Main and an Advanced tab; choose the Main tab.
  3. In the Shipping rate section, choose your rate preference:
    • Flat rate to set a fixed fee
    • Charge per product to set different shipping costs for products or items, based on location

Advanced (Integrated) Shipping Settings

To configure advanced settings, you will need to enable 'Integrated Shipping'. Enabling Integrated Shipping will allow you to print the customer prepaid shipping labels and track packages using Shippo Integration.
  1. Click the Advanced Features tab from the menu to the left.
  2. Toggle Integrated Shipping 'On'. 
Once Integrated Shipping has been enabled, you will have access to the advanced shipping settings. 
  1. Click the Settings tab from the menu to the left.
  2. From the Settings page, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to Set up integrated shipping with Shippo, and click the Set up with Shippo button. 
  4. Fill out details, and click the Sign up button. 
  5. Enter your billing information, then click the Continue button. 
  6. Your Bluehost Builder will request permission to access your Shippo account. Click Allow Access

Customizing Default Package Size

  1. Click the Settings tab from the menu to the left.
  2. From the Settings page, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Manage your shipping carriers, click Manage shipping settings.
  4. Enter the Default Package size from the pop-up that appears.
  5. Click the Save button when finished. 

Setting up Carriers

This setting allows you to set your shipping carrier preferences.
  1. Click the Settings tab from the menu to the left.
  2. From the Settings page, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Manage your shipping carriers, click Go to Shippo.
  4. From your Shippo account, click the Carriers option from the menu to the left.
  5. Use the toggle buttons to the left to configure your preferred shipping carrier settings.

Setting Product Weight

Entering the product weight is the final step in configuring your shipping settings. This will need to be set from the Products tab. 
  1. From the Settings tab, navigate instead to the Products tab from the menu to the left. 
  2. Click on the product you would like to designate a weight for.
  3. Towards the bottom right, you will see a Weight setting. Enter your product weight, then Save and publish changes

Updates will reflect within your Bluehost Builder immediately; however, you should still Save or Publish your site when finished.
