Change your default Location

You'll always have one location set as your default, in this article we explain how to change your default location.

You can change your default location either via you Shopify admin or via Addition.

Edits made in Shopify will be reflected in Addition once you Resync Locations.

Edits made in Addition aren't reflected in your Shopify admin but they do override your Shopify settings. In other words, when the app is quoting rates to your customers at the checkout or using location information for order fulfillment, it will preference location information you have input to Addition over the Shopify location information.

We're outlined below the two different ways you could change your default location.

How to change your default location in Addition

  1. From your Addition dashboard, click Settings, then Locations.
    Here you'll see a list of locations. The current default location is marked with a 'default' tag.

  2. Click View on the location you wish to make the default.

  3. Scroll down to the bottom and select Default shipping origin, then click Save.


Remember: this change won't be reflected in your Shopify admin, but will override your Shopify settings.
