How do I charge a shipping cost per item? Print

  • 4

When you create your products you will need to add a value to the "Shipping Units " field in the store admin. If you want to base your shipping costs on per item add a number to this field for each item. For example, 1 item would equal a 1 in the field. Now you must base your shipping on weight or other value in your Mals account.

1. Login to your Mals-e account
2. Click "Cart Setup "
3. Click "Shipping"
4. Enter a value in Option 3
Option 3: Calculated from weight or other value
As items are added to the shopping cart you can assign a weight, or some other value such as volume or value, to the item on which shipping can be calculated using a fixed cost for each unit assigned.
Shipping cost per unit:

5. If you want to charge a value of .50 per pound add a .50 to the "Shipping cost per unit" field
6. The result for this example would be a shipping cost of .50 cents
7. This is one place the shipping & handling can come in handy to cover the initial shipping cost
