Subscription Shipping Rate Names to No Longer Use Default Names
Update: We’ve added the functionality to enable merchants to create selling plan specific shipping rate (for subscriptions) so that the names from those rates surface in checkout. If you do not create selling plan specific shipping rates then the general rate name will be surfaced in checkout. The default shipping rate names (ie. "subscription shipping", subscription local", "subscription pickup") are gone. Now merchants can customize their shipping rates by naming them what makes the most sense for their products & services. 😄
These changes are coming soon, expect to see them in December. If you have any Scripts that depended on the old default shipping rate name of "Subscription shipping" and need time to make changes, please contact Merchant Support to have these changes temporarily disabled for your shop(s).
