Comparing Weight Based Shipping Modules

Miva Merchant has three weight based shipping modules. See Shipping.

Base + Weight Shipping
  • Create as many shipping methods as you want, "Economy under 5 pounds", "Economy 5 - 9.99 pounds", etc.
  • Each shipping method has 1 weight range.
  • The total shipping charge is: (weight of order x shipping charge per unit weight) + base charge.

    Example:

    • Create a Base + Weight shipping method:

      Shipping Method

    • The customer's order weighs 3 pounds. The shipping charge is: (3 lbs x $2.00/lb) + $5.00 = $11.00
Minimum or Weight Shipping
  • Create as many shipping methods as you want, "Economy under 5 pounds", "Economy 5 - 9.99 pounds", etc.
  • Each shipping method has 1 weight range.
  • The total shipping charge is: (weight of order x shipping charge per unit weight) or minimum charge, whichever is greater.

    Example:

    • Create a Minimum or Weight shipping method:

      Economy

    • The customer's order weighs 3 pounds. The shipping charge is: (3 lbs x $2.00/lb) OR ($10.00 minimum) = $10.00
Weight Table Shipping

In Weight Table Based Shipping you create a set of ranges based on the weight of the customer's total order. Each weight range can have a different shipping charge. For example:

Range 1: 0 - 4.99 pounds, charge $4.00 to ship the entire order.

Range 2: 5 - 9.99 pounds, charge $6.00 to ship the entire order.
