The table rate shipping method lets you set up a table to calculate shipping rates for a combination of conditions. The shipping rate can be based on the following:
- Weight v. Destination
- Price v. Destination
- # of Items v. Destination
If your warehouse is located on the Gold Coast, it costs less to ship to Brisbane than to Perth. You can use table rate shipping to pass the savings on to your customer.
Example 1: Weight v. Destination
This example uses the Weight v Destination condition to create a set of three different shipping rates based on the total weight of products in the cart for Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. The asterisk (*) is a wildcard that represents all values.
|table||Country||Region / State||Zip / Postal Code||Weight Total kg (and above)||Shipping Price|
Example 2: Restrict Free Shipping to Australia
You can use table rates to limit free shipping to only the Australia while excluding Tasmania.
Create a tablerates.csv file that includes all the state destinations to which you are willing to provide free shipping
Complete the table rate configuration with the following settings:
|Condition||Price v. Destination|
|Method Name||Free Shipping|
|Ship to Applicable Countries||Specific Countries|
