Within Shopify, merchants can now set up shipping profiles with rates they want to offer to customers at checkout. Rates can be customized for specific variants originating from specific locations, and shipping to specific zones. Shopify then ensures that the correct rates are surfaced to customers at checkout.
Through the Delivery Profiles API, apps now have write access to a shop’s shipping settings. This enables you to manage everything from profiles to rates directly via the API, and automate what was previously a manual process.
