Minimum requirements to create shipping templates

You’ll need to make sure each template meets the minimum requirements; otherwise you’ll get an error message as you create them.


You must offer at least standard shipping for every template. Regions that have two-day delivery must also have standard shipping.

  • Reach: For the standard shipping option, shipping to all states in the continental U.S. is required (excluding Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. protectorates). If you choose to offer free economy, shipping to all continental US street addresses is required.
  • Rates: For the standard shipping option, the shipping rates must be the same for regions in the continental U.S. (excluding Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. protectorates).
  • Address: You may opt out of shipping to post office (P.O.) boxes, but shipping to street addresses are required. You cannot change the shipping rate based on the address type.


You must allow all address types within your settings.
