Case 1

Charge based on the quantity. Formula – amount in figure*[qty]

  • Eg – 20 (₹20 will be charged as shipping cost irrespective of quantity)
    • For 3 qty(products), cost of shipping will be ₹20/-
    • For 5 qty(products), cost of shipping will be ₹20/-
  • Eg – 10*[qty] (Here, price will be multiplied by total quantity)
    • For 3 qty(products), cost of shipping will be 10*3 = ₹30/-
    • For 5 qty(products), cost of shipping will be 10*5 = ₹50/-
  • Eg – 50*[qty] (Here, price will be multiplied by total quantity)
    • For 5 qty(products), cost of shipping will be 50*5 = ₹250/-
    • For 7 qty(products), cost of shipping will be 50*7 = ₹350/-

Case 2

Charge based on percentage. Formula – [fee percent=’x’ min_fee=’y’ max_fee=’z’]

  • Eg- [fee percent=x min_fee=y max_fee=z] where,
    • x percentage fee
    • y minimum fee that will be charged irrespective of price
    • z = maximum fee that can be charged irrespective of total cart amount or total quantity
  • Let’s say you want to charge the following
    • 5% as shipping charge
    • minimum shipping = ₹20/-
    • maximum shipping = ₹50/-
    • Then formula will be [fee percent=’5′ min_fee’20’ max_fee=’50’]
