Price Table Based Shipping Tab

Use this module to generate shipping charges based on the order total.

In the example below we created two price based shipping methods: Economy and Overnight. Both methods will be shown to customers during checkout. For each method we can add:

  • A handling charge: this is a flat fee that will be added to every order which uses this method.
  • A ceiling: The ceiling is a way of dividing the method into price ranges. In our example we created four price ranges in the Overnight shipping method: $25.00, $50.00, $100.00, and over $100.00. We created the "Over $100.00" price range by entering a "+" in the Ceiling field. Each price range has a different shipping charge.
  • If the order total is less than or equal to $25.00, the shipping charge is 10% of the order total.
  • If the order total is between $25.00 and $50.00, the shipping charge is 15% of the order total.
  • If the order total is between $50.00 and $100.00, the shipping charge is 20% of the order total.
  • If the order total is over $100.00, the shipping charge is 25% of the order total.
  • A charge: This is the shipping charge we are going to apply to the order. In our example we set the shipping charge as a percent of the order total, but it can also be a flat fee.
  1. Our sample customer has an order total of $25.00. They selected Overnight shipping which has a $5.00 handling fee.
  2. The software looks at the customer's order total. It's less than or equal to $25.00, so it applies a shipping charge of 10%, which comes out to $2.50.
  3. The total shipping is $7.50.
  4. Economy
