Shipping Integration Based on Distance (using Google or Bing Maps APIs)


Shipping Integration Based on Distance

Shipping by distance leverages the Google or Bing Maps APIs to figure out the distance from your store to the shipping address. In the WSM you can set up how much you want to charge for X kilometers/miles.

The articles below describe how to get a Google (section 1) or Bing (section 3) API key, how to use the integration with shipping rules, and how to set your store to use miles or kilometers. The second set of article cover how to set the shipping integration for your specific POS or ERP system.

In the case of Bing, you can also specify shipping rules to restrict shipping methods based on geographic polygons, which are defined using sets of coordinates.
