The next step, after choosing the countries where you can ship your goods, is setting up shipping rates that your store is going to charge.
The additional delivery cost that you charge your customer for the product that they order is calculated according to the shipping rates. This cost is added to a customer's order at checkout.
If you are using eCommerce.js script properly, changing the shipping rates will affect the checkout automatically.
The shipping costs are estimated based either on price or weight.
In the price-based rates table, you can have multiple rates, with a minimum and maximum price rate, and cost value. These rates can be edited and deleted.
Consider creating a free shipping rule for orders over X amount.
In the weight-based rates table, you can have multiple rates, with a minimum and maximum order weight, and cost value. These rates can also be edited and deleted.
