When you are selling products, it is very important to know what you are charging customers for shipping costs. With WebStarts shopping cart system, you can automatically calculate and charge for shipping based on UPS’s shipping costs or you can set custom shipping pricing to have complete control. To setup custom shipping options and prices, use the following steps:
Step 1: Log into your shopping cart account and click the “Settings” tab. Find the “Shipping” link and click that to access your shipping settings.
Step 2: Next to calculation method, choose “Custom” from the drop down.
Step 3: Enter an option name. Something like “Overnight” or “Ground” will work. Shipping Basis will allow you to choose which parameter to calculate shipping by… Weight, Price, or Quantity. Pricing Increments will allow you to set different prices for different ranges of Weight, Price or Quantity. Click Next.
Step 4: Here you will set the different pricing for the number of increments that you have chosen. Click Save. See the video for an example.
Step 5: Repeat the process for as many different options as you want to offer.
