There are two types of shipping rates you can use for your Shopify store:

  1. Flat rates: a specific amount that you will charge your customers for shipping, depending on the shipping service used.

  2. Calculated rates: a varying amount that is calculated by the shipping carrier at checkout. Your customers will be charged the exact amount that the shipping will cost, plus any handling fees you add to the price (these handling fees can also be a flat cost or by percentage).
