Free shipping settings

Free shipping settings

Display free shipping and other shipping settings in your Bing Merchant Center stores.
Important

Not everyone has this feature yet. If you don’t, don’t worry - it’s coming soon!

In Bing Merchant Center, you can set up shipping settings for an entire store, as well as for individual products.

The process is straightforward: All you need to do is to specify the minimum purchase required if you offer free shipping for your store. And with shipping labels, you can specify shipping settings for individual products in your Bing Merchant Center feeds.

When you set up shipping settings, keep in mind that there is a hierarchy that determines which shipping setting to display:

  • The shipping settings in your feed supersede the shipping settings entered in Bing Merchant Center's shipping section.
  • Shipping labels supersede the store-level free shipping setting (for example, you offer free shipping on eligible items, but oversized items are shipped for an extra fee).
  • If there are no shipping settings dictated in a feed or in a shipping label, the store-level free shipping applies to the product so long as the minimum purchase price is met.

  2. Select the Bing Merchant Center store you want to edit.
  3. Click Settings and then click Shipping.
  4. Next to Quick edit, select the check box.
  5. From the Store name list, select a store you want to copy from that contains shipping settings. (Note: We'll warn you if you have no other stores to copy from or if you select a store that has no shipping settings.)
  6. You'll see the Free shipping section and Add shipping labels section fill with shipping settings. You can edit both section as needed to fit the shipping settings for your current store.
  7. Click Save when you're done.

Shipping labels allow you to further customize the shipping settings for the products in your Bing Merchant Center feed.

Let's say that you offer free shipping on eligible items with $25 minimum purchase. However, you charge a premium for shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, shipping fragile or oversized items, and shipping overnight. A shipping label allows you to customize settings for different types of shipping.

What you need:

  • Add the shipping attribute and related details for each product in your Bing Merchant Center feed.
  • Add a shipping label that matches the shipping name detailed in your Bing Merchant Center feed. (For example, if you add a shipping attribute called Expedited for a product in your feed, you need to add a corresponding shipping label called Expedited. That one-to-one match helps display the correct shipping rates.)
  • Any mininum purchase amounts required to qualify for the stated shipping rate. For example, you may offer discounted overnight shipping for orders above $200 USD.

To add a new shipping label:

  1. On the top menu, click Tools and then click Bing Merchant Center.
  2. Select the Bing Merchant Center store you want to edit.
  3. Click Settings and then click Shipping.
  4. Slide the Add shipping labels switch to the right.
  5. Click Create new label.
  6. You'll be prompted in a window to add a Shipping label, the Shipping rate, and the Minimum purchase amount required in order to qualify for the stated shipping rate. Enter a name and the amounts.
    Note: Be sure to match the Shipping label name to the shipping attribute in your Bing Merchant Center feed.
  7. Click Create when you're done.

To edit an existing shipping label:

  1. On the top menu, click Tools and then click Bing Merchant Center.
  2. Select the Bing Merchant Center store you want to edit.
  3. Click Settings and then click Shipping.
  4. Go to the table in the Add shipping labels section, find the label you want to edit, and click on the pencil icon under Actions.
  5. You'll see in a window the existing information for the shipping label.
  6. Edit as you wish and click Update when you're done.
