It is best to determine how you will charge for shipping — per weight, per item, etc., then enter your shipper information.  Choices are as follows:

  • WEIGHT MATRIX — Shipping costs based on weight (Remember, you must enter the weight of the product when setting up the WebItems to utilize this option.)
  • PRICE MATRIX — Shipping costs based on total price of order
  • PER ORDER — Flat shipping rate for all orders
  • PER ITEM — Shipping costs charged for every item
  • ORDER PERCENT — Shipping costs based on a percentage of order
  • WEIGHT MULTIPLIER — Shipping costs based on percentage of order weight total

You can create one or multiple shipping methods (SHIP TYPE) and shipping companies (SHIPPER) based on how you want to deliver your products.

Shipping types are the categories within each Shipper, i.e., Ground, Priority Mail, UPS 2nd Day Air, etc.
