Set shipping rates for international markets in local currencies

You can now set shipping rates for your international markets in the local currencies you've configured with Shopify Markets. When creating rates in an international shipping zone, you can choose between your shop currency and the local currency that you’ve enabled for that zone’s market. This choice applies to the price itself and the cart price conditions that control the rate’s visibility. Existing rates will not be changed.

This means you can now set up and advertise localized shipping rates like “£10 flat rate shipping, free after £100” for international customers. Or, continue to set rates in your shop currency, and they’ll be automatically converted to cover your costs.

The option to set shipping rates in local currencies is only available for single-country zones, or those where all countries/regions share a currency. When setting rates for large zones containing countries that use many different currencies, automatic conversion from your shop’s currency remains the only option. You can preview the results of that automatic conversion in the Markets area of settings.
