In this tutorial, we will guide you in setting up per item shipping in your osCommerce eshop. This creates a standard shipping rate for a given item, that is added to the price of each item you purchase.

For example, if an item has a set shipping price of $3.00, and you purchase 3 of that item, the total shipping price will be $9.00.

Installing the Per Item Shipping Module:

  1. Login to the osCommerce Admin Panel.
  2. Select the Modules button from the navigation menu, then click the shipping option.
  3. Click the +Install Module button.
  4. On the Modules list, select Per Item, then click the +Install Module button to the right.
