How carrier-based shipping settings work in Google Merchant Center?

Here are a few things you need to know before using carrier-based shipping settings while submitting your feed in Google Merchant Center.

You can use this setting if you charge shipping based on a carrier-calculated rate. You can choose from supported carriers (for example, UPS, TNT, Hermes) and services (for example, Ground, Next Day Air, 3 Day Select) available.

Here is the list of countries that support carrier-based shipping.

Region Supported shipping carrier
Australia AusPost, TNT, TOLL
Germany DHL, DPD, Hermes, UPS
United Kingdom DHL, DPD, Royal Mail, TNT, UPS, Yodel
United States


To use carrier rates, you’ll also need to submit shipping-related attributes:

  • shipping_weight
  • shipping_length
  • shipping_width
  • shipping_height
