What are Shipping Rates? Why should I use it?

Shipping rates are the cost of shipping when you purchase an item. For example, Kith charges $10 for shipping any item that is on their site. During the checkout process, the bot has to poll the shipping rate in order to get a valid shipping option to checkout with, however, this can be sped up by inputting the shipping rate before the drop, eliminating the need to fetch one during the drop. This decreases the time necessary in order to checkout.

Finding the Shipping Rates Tab

The shipping rate tab is located in your settings. This can be found by clicking your profile pic, located at the top right corner.

After clicking the setting button, click "Accounts" then "Shipping Rates."

Fetching Shipping Rates

Once you are in the shipping rate tab, you can begin fetching shipping rates to use on drops.

Store

Product OR Rate
