Yes, you can build in advanced shipping rules.
During the onboarding process, please provide your Passport Onboarding Specialist with any shipping rules that you will want to set within your cart. The most common ways we see shipping rates surfaced are as follows:
- For DDU shipments: live rates -OR- flat rates
- For DDP shipments: live rates + live duties and taxes -OR- flat rates + live duties and taxes
We do not recommend setting flat rates that are inclusive of duties and taxes as the amount charged for duties and taxes can vary so widely. This is dependent on the destination country and the cart value. The decision to set a live rate vs. a flat rate depends on what your brand is optimizing for.
