Sorting shipping options order at checkout
You can choose which shipping or delivery method to display on top of the list at checkout therefore encouraging shoppers to select it. The first shipping method in the list is also shown in the shopping cart as a default shipping option. That affects which shipping cost customers see when they start checkout.
To sort shipping methods:
- From your Ecwid admin, go to Shipping & Pickup.
- Click Actions → Sort next to the shipping method.
- Arrange the carriers into your preferred sorting order by dragging and dropping the methods. Сhanges are saved automatically.
Now customers will see shipping methods in the specified order.
Please note that in some cases the first shipping method in the list will not be displayed as default at checkout and in the shopping cart. That may occur if the shipping method has conditions that do not match the order, e.g, destination limitations, total weight, etc. The first shipping or delivery method matching the order and customer’s location will be shown as the default one.
