How do live shipping rates work?

Live rates are carrier-calculated real-time rates. They are available to Shopify Advanced plan users, users of other Shopify plans who request live rates added to their stores for $20/month, WooCommerce users, Ecwid Venture, Business, and Unlimited plan users, as well as custom stores set up through our API and for manual orders. 

Here are Printful's live rate shipping options: 

  • Overnight (next day delivery in the US)
  • Express (1-3 business days in the US, Canada, and internationally)

Here are Printful's fixed, flat rate shipping options: 

  • Standard (3-4 business days in the US, 6-12 days in Canada, 5-20 days internationally)

We choose the most suitable and reliable carrier for your shipment, taking into account the shipping method that’s been selected and the end-address. You’ll see the specific carrier delivering the package in the order confirmation email.

All orders shipping with the Overnight delivery method for domestic orders will automatically be marked as priority in our system. For international shipments, orders with the Express shipping method will be marked as priority.

Some shipping methods will show up for specific orders. For example, overnight shipping is only available for orders going to an address in the US. Similarly, express or standard shipping may not be available for all destinations. Only the methods available for the particular address will show up at the checkout.
