How to Use the Shipping Rate Estimator

The Shipping Rate Estimator allows you to generate shipping rate estimates based on the a shipment’s destination, estimated dimensions, and weight. Currently, the estimator only calculates domestic shipping rates within the United States.

This tool can be found on the Settings page in Airhouse.


After you input all required information and click Show Shipping Rates, the estimator will load all the full estimated landed cost of a given shipment. Because surcharges and fuel change frequently from shipping carriers, that estimate will include all of the following:

  • Base shipping label cost
  • Area surcharges
  • Handling surcharges
  • Fuel surcharges
  • Peak surcharges
  • Residential surcharges
  • Miscellaneous surcharges

NOTE: The Shipping Rate Estimator will display rates for ALL shipping methods available at the warehouse(s) you ship from with Airhouse. If you would like to add additional shipping methods to your Shopify store and Airhouse account, please contact your Account Manager to ensure they are properly added.

Here is an example of estimated costs and options for a sample shipment produced by the Shipping Rate Estimator:
