    Shipping Table

    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

    Table Method Choose if you want the shipping price set by the total price, amount purchased, or weight of the purchased items.
    Handling Fee 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.
    Tax Class You can choose a tax class if you want to charge taxes on the shipping price. 
    Tax Basis

    As per Zen cart: 

    Shipping - Based on customers Shipping Address
    Billing - Based on customers Billing address
