With shipping cost, you can set advanced rules or stick to the basic settings, depending on your business model. Visit Cost settings > Shipping.

Follow this tutorial or read below.

Calculation settings

First, set your default rules to calculate shipping cost for every order. You'll see these options:

Multiply with quantity for the same product: Applies when shipping fee is proportional to product quantity in an order.

For example, an order has the same 2 products and shipping fee is $3 per item. If enabled, final shipping cost is $6. If disabled, final shipping cost is $3.

For orders with multiple different products, total shipping cost will be either the highest shipping fee or the sum of each product's shipping fee in an order.

For example, an order contains item A (shipping fee $3) and item B (shipping fee $4). If you choose Sum shipping fees of each product, final shipping cost is $7. If you choose Use the highest shipping fee, final shipping cost is $4.

Default shipping

This is where you set shipping fees for all products based on geography. 

Add new > Enter Zone name (optional) > Choose the countries or regions > Set shipping fee > Save.

Note: if you also set custom shipping fees for specific products, custom shipping will be prioritized over default shipping.

Custom shipping

This is where you set shipping fees for specific products. 

Under Add new products, choose products from the dropdown. Click Create.

A new shipping rule will be created for those particular products. By default, there's a single shipping fee applied to all countries. If you want to have different shipping fees for different countries (under certain products), click Add new.

Quantity break

In both Default shipping rules and Custom shipping rules, you'll have the option to consider quantity breaks when calculating shipping cost.

Quantity breaks allow the shipping cost(s) of second item onwards to be different (normally lower) from that of the first item. For example, if you have a multiple-item order, you can set up quantity break as:

First item = $3. Second item onwards = $1 for each item.

Total shipping cost for a 2-item order = $3 + $1 = $4. Total shipping cost for a 3-item order = $3 + $1 + $1 = $5.

This means that for each item added, the total shipping cost will increase by $1.

If you want to apply this calculation to your business, tick on Calculate shipping cost on quantity break. Then separately enter the shipping cost of both the first item and the rest (from the second item onwards).

Refresh profit calculation

Finally, if you want new changes to affect all orders in the past, click Re-calculate Profit. This will refresh profit calculation.
