Need to set different delivery costs for different weight ranges? Or hide/replace a shipping method when the order is too light or heavy?
Now you can, even if a shipping method doesn't provide this level of flexibility out of the box!
Here's an example
Imagine you use a shipping method that offers only one weight class, e.g., 0-30 kg. Before today you could set only one shipping rate for the whole weight range. Now you can, e.g.:
- For orders < 10 kg, disable this method.
- For 10 - 20 kg orders, set the cost to 6 EUR.
- For 20 - 30 kg orders, set the cost to 7 EUR.
How to set it up?
- Create or edit a delivery method.
- In the Shipping rates section, select Define custom weight classes
- Define the classes and respective shipping rates.
Currently, custom weight classes are available for Standard, Same Day, and Nominated Day methods. The functionality will be available for Service Point methods soon.
Whether the order was shipped through a fulfilment party, dropshipping, or picked up in store, you can now process any domestic returns with Sendcloud's return portal. No need to fill in manual return forms—now, all orders can be processed through the return portal, no matter how they were shipped in the first place.
How does it work?
The return portal fetches order data to start the return process. To get the required information to Sendcloud, import the order via a CSV file, any of your integrations, or our API. Then your customer fills in their postcode and order number in the return portal to announce the return.
Please note that this feature is not yet available for international returns. You can continue to use the manual return form for shipments from other countries.
How to set it up ⚙️
- Go to Settings> Return portal
- Enable ‘allow returns without outbound shipment’
- Click Save
