UPDATED: The difference between Seller Shipping & Platform Shipping Options on TikTok Shop?

In this article, we will discuss the different shipping options available in the TikTok Shop Seller Center and how they relate to SK IQ. Whether you want to use TikTok's own fulfillment service or integrate with SK IQ and Shopify for order fulfillment, understanding the shipping options is essential. Let's dive in!

Shipping Options Available

When you navigate to the Orders Shipping Options section in the TikTok Shop Seller Center, you will see two options: TikTok Shipping and Seller Shipping.

TikTok Shipping

By selecting TikTok Shipping, you indicate to TikTok that you want them to handle all aspects of order fulfillment. This means that no shipping information will be sent to SK IQ or Shopify. TikTok will take care of the entire process.

Seller Shipping

On the other hand, if you want to use your own fulfillment method with SK IQ and Shopify, you should choose Seller Shipping. This option informs TikTok that you prefer to integrate with external services for order fulfillment rather than relying on TikTok's own system.

Switching to Seller Shipping

To switch to Seller Shipping, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Orders Shipping Options page in the TikTok Shop Seller Center.
  2. Currently, you will notice that TikTok Shipping is selected.
  3. Click on "Select" to choose Seller Shipping instead.
  4. Once selected, you will see that Seller Shipping is now in use.

Now that you have enabled Seller Shipping, all orders will be routed to SK IQ and Shopify for order fulfillment. Your preferred tracking company or shipping service should be ready to handle the process seamlessly.

Additionally, make sure to review and update your shipping template settings in the "View Details" or "Edit" sections. This will ensure that all your shipping preferences are correctly set up for a smooth fulfillment process.
