Q: How many different types of shipping methods can I have?

You can have up to 10 different shipping options for a product.

For example, you may want to offer the following shipping options with a different shipping charge to a potential buyer:

  • Standard - 3-6 days
  • Express - 1-2 days
  • Courier - no signature required
  • Courier - signature required
  • Rural delivery 


To set up more than one shipping option, select "Settings --> Trade Me --> Shipping" from the left-hand navigation.

Click 'add shipping method' next to the shipping policy or the 'edit' link

Points to note when naming your shipping policies:

  1. Max length of policy name is 50 characters  
  2. Must not contain $ symbol

Q: Can I offer Combined Shipping on a second (or more) item/s purchased at the same time?

If you would like to offer free shipping for orders made at the same time you can offer free or reduced shipping by adding an option to your shipping policy similar to the one below:

If using this option it is up to the honesty of the buyer to choose the combined shipping option only after purchasing the first item so this needs to be manually monitored to make sure buyers pay you the correct shipping.
