How can I automatically set a service based on the Ship To address?

Automation rules can be used to set different shipping options based on whether the shipment will be domestic or international, or they can be used to trigger orders for shipments 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:

Example Rules and Descriptions

Automation Rules. Example for when to use International Shipping

What does it do?

This rule would locate any international orders and set the shipping service / package type to DHL Express Worldwide Dutiable / Package.

Example Use:

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.

Automation Rules. Example for when to use Domestic Shipping

What does it do?

This rule would locate any domestic orders with a matching postal code and set the shipping service / package type to Australia Post Parcel Post w/ Signature / Package.

Example Use:

You may use a different shipping service to handle orders going to a certain part of the country, such as using a lower cost shipping service when packages are going to the same city you're located in. The example rule is looking for orders going to Perth, WA.
