Sell Your Physical Products Plus Add Shipping with iThemes Exchange

Today, we’re giving you one more great reason to choose and use iThemes Exchange for your WordPress ecommerce store!

Now free with iThemes Exchange v 1.4, you can now sell your physical products, like your artwork, parts or custom crafts, with the same user-simplicity as you can your digital products.

Plus, with the new Exchange Simple Shipping Core Add-on, you can easily add multiple shipping options to your products.

The options available today are:

  • Flat Rate Shipping — you just want to add a flat fee on top of your product price and don’t need to mess with complicated and advanced shipping options. (By the way, here are 10 ways to use Flat Rate Shipping.)
  • Free Shipping — you don’t want to charge for shipping but you need the shipping information to send it to them.

We built these options to continue adding more features to allow you to do more with Exchange while keeping the process for you and your customers simple and easy.

Using the Simple Shipping (and Physical Products) Core Add-on

1. Download Exchange 1.4 If you’re a current Exchange user, update to Exchange 1.4.
2. Visit the Add-ons page from the Exchange menu in the WordPress dashboard.


3. Enable the Physical Products Add-on.
4. Enable the Simple Shipping Add-on. This will redirect you the Shipping Settings page.
5. In the Simple Shipping tab of Shipping settings page, add defaults for flat rate (label and default amount) and choose whether to enable the free shipping option.


6. Switch to the General tab of the Shipping settings page. From here you can choose to allow individual products to override the global Shipping Methods settings.
7. To add a new Physical Product, expand the Exchange menu and click Add Physical Product.
