I need to set a flat rate for shipping costs for some products per region (ie. group of states).  Is there any other way to consolidate this instead of writing out all 50 states in the example below?

 

US:AL::103.675 USD,US:AR::99.18 USD,US:AZ::136.88 USD,US:CA::136.88 USD,US:CO::101.79 USD,US:CT::102.95 USD,USSmiley Very HappyC::108.315 USD,USSmiley Very HappyE::108.315 USD,US:FL::103.675 USD,US:IA::103.965 USD,US:GA::103.675 USD,US:ID::130.5 USD,US:IN::103.965 USD,US:IL::103.965 USD,US:KS::103.965 USD,US:KY::103.965 USD,US:LA::99.18 USD,US:MA::102.95 USD,US:MD::108.315 USD,US:ME::102.95 USD,US:MI::103.965 USD,US:MN::103.965 USD,US:MO::103.965 USD,US:MS::99.18 USD,US:MT::101.79 USD,US:NC::108.315 USD,US:ND::103.965 USD,US:NE::103.965 USD,US:NH::102.95 USD,US:NJ::102.95 USD,US:NM::101.79 USD,US:NV::136.88 USD,US:NY::102.95 USD,USSmiley SurprisedH::103.965 USD,USSmiley SurprisedK::99.18 USD,USSmiley SurprisedR::130.5 USD,USSmiley TongueA::102.95 USD,US:RI::102.95 USD,USSmiley FrustratedC::103.675 USD,USSmiley FrustratedD::103.965 USD,US:TN::103.675 USD,US:TX::99.18 USD,US:UT::101.79 USD,US:VA::108.315 USD,US:VT::102.95 USD,US:WA::130.5 USD,US:WI::103.965 USD,US:WV::108.315 USD,US:WY::101.79 USD

I spoke with Google directly about this. They had to get back with me. After over 24 hours, they called me back and explained that in order to touch a flat fee on different states (as mentioned above), one would have to break out each state. So the example given above is the only current way to do this.

Unfortunately, there are no known examples of doing such a thing in their article: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160162?hl=en.

Hi tN25,

You probably want to look at the account level options for Tax & Shipping. I would suggest having a flat shipping rate for anywhere in the US.
