Drop shipping from multiple vendors in different locations

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, I have a new store that uses multiple vendors who all drop ship from their respective locations. As such, my UPS freight is calculated based on the product weight and the location of that particular vendor. How can I configure the shipping in Google Merchant to work with this, or is this even possible?

 

Thanks,

Randy

Thanks for responding. So based on your reply, I can use multiple origins...

"multiple origins now may be configured using multiple
carrier-calculated-shared-library entries with a set of
corresponding custom-shipping-rules entries, depending
on the details."

I have created multiple shared library entries for each shipment type. Can you please tell me how to create the corresponding custom-shipping-rules entries based on the origin zip code? Or can you direct me to a link which explains that?

Thanks!!
Randy

first, you're welcome.

configuration details are currently under the above referenced link --
https://support.google.com/merchants/topic/6076523

also, a merchant-center specialist may be contacted directly --
https://support.google.com/merchants/contactflow

just to emphasize, drop-shipping is forbidden by the current policies.

carrier (ups) rates are calculated automatically based on settings within
the account, the (required) shipping_weight and dimensional attributes
per-item in the submitted (feed) data, and user-location-data obtained
automatically during searches.

multiple origins now may be configured using multiple
carrier-calculated-shared-library entries with a set of
corresponding custom-shipping-rules entries, depending
on the details.

shipping rates may be either exact or an overestimate; if accurate shipping
cannot be configured or submitted using existing methods then, a method
that displays an overestimate is required.

direct-to-consumer shipping methods are required; items shipped via freight,
ship-to-store, or other similar methods are generally not allowed; drop-ship
supply-chains are also generally not allowed -- a policy violation may be
flagged at any time.

 

items which are not kept physically in stock by the merchants
who sell them simply cannot be submitted as product-listing-ads --
however, there are other campaign-types and ad-formats that
are available and might be used to advertise such items.
