Today, we’re excited to announce brand new shipping cost options that make it even easier to run a successful online store with Jimdo.
You can activate the new shipping cost options by logging in to your site and visiting “Shipping Costs” in the Settings. Starting May 5, 2014, the new shipping costs will be activated for all online stores, so please make sure to adjust your shipping settings by that date.
Read more about all of the new shipping cost options below, or learn how all of the features work in our Support Center.

If possible, we recommend offering free shipping to your customers. Flat rate shipping is the next best choice, because it is easy for your customers to understand exactly what their shipping charges will be, making them less likely to abandon their order at checkout.

Beyond that, we’ve also simplified the options for maximum shipping charges and free shipping for large orders. We hope that these changes make it easier for you to set up robust shipping cost rules for multiple regions, and we know that your customers will also benefit from the simplification that comes along with shipping charges calculated per order.
