Admin sets the shipping methods possible and the zones available, while as a vendor, you get to set the charges for shipping. Let’s take Flat Rate shipping method, for example, you may add a fixed amount say 20 (excluding tax). Then, the customer whose bill has amounted to 100$ for purchasing three different products will pay 120$: 100$ for the order and 20$ for shipping. You may also charge the customer for shipping each item separately, in order to do so: Add 20.00 * [qty] (qty – number of items). Doing so, the customer will pay 160$ for the three item he/she purchased ( 100$ order bill, 20$ for each product ). Next option being, having a percentage based shipping charge: In order to do so, add [fee percent=”20″ min_fee=”30″ max_fee=””] in the field ( where percent is the percentage added for shipping while min_fee is the shipping charge if the percentage amount added results in lesser than the min_fee, the min_fee is added vice versa for max fee). So the customer pays 130$ in this case instead of 120$.
