Automation rules can be used to set different shipping options based on whether the shipment will be domestic or international, or whether the shipments are going to specific countries, cities, or post codes.
Below are some examples of automation rules which set shipping service based on the ship to information:
This rule will locate any international orders and set the shipping service / package type to DHL Express Worldwide Dutiable / Package.
International orders will always use a different shipping service than their domestic counterparts. This rule would help switch the service automatically if the order is going to an international address.
This rule will locate any domestic orders with a matching postal code and set the shipping service / package type to Sendle Standard - Pickup / Parcel.
Set the criteria so that Postal Code contains the postal codes you wish to target and International Order is set to False. Separate each postal code in the list with a semicolon. See the Metro Vs Regional Postcodes file attached to this article for a list of AU postal codes.
Then, set the Action to apply the service and package type you wish to apply to these shipments.
This example sets the Service to Sendle Standard - Pickup for orders with a Recipient postal code in Perth, WA. However, you can configure additional rules that set other services and package types based upon other groups of postal codes.
