Before You Begin
By default, Deliverr will import Etsy orders and assign them the 'Standard' service level agreement in Deliverr. This means we fulfill the order with the 'Standard' shipping SLA (service level agreement) and charge you, the merchant, the 'Standard' fulfillment fee for that order.
The following instructions explain how to configure Etsy accordingly so that your customers see expected delivery dates that accurately correspond to the Standard SLA.
If you'd like to offer your customers other shipping options (which will then map to other service levels and fulfillment fees in Deliverr), please read Set Shipping Upgrades in Etsy and Map to Service Levels in Deliverr after you set up a profile below.
Create an Shipping Profile in Etsy
In Etsy Shop Manager, go to Shipping Settings and then 'Add Profile.'
Build the new shipping profile as follows:
|Shipping prices||I'll enter fixed prices manually||Required, as Deliverr uses various carriers instead of the ones offered by Etsy.|
|Origin zip code||94104 or any zip code in the United States||Choose any zip code you like. For Deliverr, this field is actually variable based on the order. Deliverr automatically chooses a fulfillment center for your order based on inventory availability and our estimated ability to fulfill the order within the SLA.|
|Processing time||1-2 business days||
We recommend this time so that the estimated delivery time shown in Etsy to customers is most accurate for your buyers.
Lowering the processing time will show a quicker expected delivery date (for possible higher buyer conversion), but it is possible that Deliverr may not fulfill the order before the expected delivery date.
|Fixed shipping prices > United States||Shipping carrier: Other
Delivery time: 4 to 5 business days
What you'll charge: Free shipping
The delivery time plus the processing time together equal the SLA (service level agreement) of Deliverr's standard shipping (7 business days).
|Fixed shipping prices > Everywhere else||Shipping carrier: Other
Delivery time: 11 to 12 business days
What you'll charge: (up to you the merchant)
|Read our International Shipping help article for more details on how to ship internationally from Deliverr's United States fulfillment centers.|
If you leave blank, then all orders will be fulfilled as 'Standard' in Deliverr.
Finally, go through all of your Etsy listings.
- For listings you do want to fulfill with Deliverr, check that they are using the 'Deliverr Shipping Profile'.
- For listings you do not want to fulfill with Deliverr, make sure they are using another shipping profile or custom shipping settings that you set.
Other Shipping Settings in Etsy
Free shipping guarantee
Up to you. This is free shipping from the buyer's perspective. Deliverr will still charge you, the merchant, the fulfillment fee for your SKUs based on the service level (just Standard only for now). This covers the cost of picking, packing, and shipping your item to the buyer.
Deliverr does not have a fast tag (fast shipping badge) for Etsy, nor do we have a cart minimum feature specifically linked to fast shipping (ie something different from what Etsy currently offers).
Leave as default. These options are not relevant, as Deliverr will fulfill orders on your behalf.
Rates and upgrades
Shipping rates: Leave as default. These options are not relevant, as Deliverr fulfills orders on your behalf.
Shipping upgrades: Optional. This is up to you if you want to offer your customers the ability to purchase a faster shipping speed for their order.
- Enabled — Requires you to create shipping upgrades in your shipping profile and map them to service levels in Deliverr. For more info: Set Shipping Upgrades in Etsy and Map to Service Levels in Deliverr.
- Disabled — Deliverr will fulfill all Etsy orders at Standard shipping SLAs and fulfillment rates.
