This field is where you set the table rates. For example: 20:5.00, 30:7.00, 10000:10
This would mean by price:
$0-$19.99 = $5.00
$20-$29.99 = $7.00
& $30 or more would be = $10.00
By weight this would be:
0-19.99lbs = $5.00
20-29.99lbs = $7.00
30lbs or more will be = $10.00
By amount would be:
0-19 items = $5.00
20-29 items = $7.00
30+ items = $10.00
||Choose if you want the shipping price set by the total price, amount purchased, or weight of the purchased items.
||Enter a handling fee if you are charging in this field.
|Handling Per Order or Per Box
||Choose if you want the handling fee charged per item or per box.
||You can choose a tax class if you want to charge taxes on the shipping price.
As per Zen cart:
Shipping - Based on customers Shipping Address
