Different Shipping Rates for different Methods or Regions. New in DataFeedWatch

How can you charge different shipping cost for different regions or methods or delivery times? That is not possible in the Google Merchant Center, but in DataFeedWatch you can!

shipping rates

Only 1 region in the Google Merchant Center

Merchants enter their Tax & Shipping data in their Google Merchant Center (GMC). You get to select an existing carrier (US) or you can enter a flat fee or shipping cost based on weight, number of items or price.

That is quite an extensive range of possibilities and it works for many merchants.

Differentiate in DataFeedWatch

Some merchants want to differentiate: they want a different rate depending on

- State
- Delivery speed (1 day or 3 days.)
- Delivery method (air, ground, etc.)


This is how you can do that in DataFeedWatch:


Shipping Data Feed Optimization in DataFeedWatch

So you can create as many Shipping rates as you want. In the US and Australia you can include regions; Google does not currently allow that for other countries, but you can still create different shipping rates for different methods.


If your feed already includes Shipping information, you can also map it from the appropriate input field.

One thing is very important to keep in mind:


If you add shipping data to your data feed, it will overwrite all Shipping-settings in your Google Merchant Center.
