  • Approximate delivery date at checkout
    Turn this on to display the approximate delivery date next to delivery options at checkout. A clearly stated delivery date lets customers understand when they can expect to receive their order, resulting in a higher number of successful sales.
    From the Order preparation time drop-down select how many days it usually takes for you to prepare an order. That time will be taken into account when calculating the delivery date for customers.
    In the Days when you pack orders drop-down menu choose when you pack orders for shipment.
    Set the final time to pack orders in the I pack orders received past this time on the next day box. Your schedule will be taken into account when calculating the delivery date for customers.
  • Shipping region
    Select a destination zone where you want to ship your goods. You can specify region, country or city or choose a specific zone on a map. Customers whose address doesn’t fall into the set zone won’t see Brasil Correios options at checkout.
  • Shipping markup
    Add shipping markup. The markup is a hidden fixed fee that will be added to the Brasil Correios rates. Use this setting if you want to increase the shipping rates to cover your shipping expenses.
  • Default package size (cm)
    Set default package size. The default package size is used for the shipping rates calculation if no product dimensions are specified in your catalog. If all your products are approximately of the same size, you can set the default package size in the shipping settings once and use it for all products.
  • Minimum order subtotal
    Limit the availability of this shipping method by order subtotal. If the order is below the set amount, this shipping method will be inactive at checkout.
  • Internal shipping name
    Enter the name that will be used to refer to this method in the admin panel. This name is for internal use only and cannot be seen by customers. The actual names of the shipping methods displayed at checkout are retrieved from the carrier.
  • Use your own shipping account
    If you already have a merchant account with Correios, we recommend choosing this option. It allows you to receive more rates and services available for personal merchant accounts only. If you don't have a merchant account with Correios, you can register it on the Brasil Correios website. Upon registration, you will get Account ID. Submit this ID and your password into the Brasil Correios account settings box.
    You can test the connection to your account by clicking the Test button. If the settings are correct, you will see the “Test succeeded” message.
