The settings page of the add-on Free shipping and Shipping freights enables you to specify whether the shipping cost for products with a defined shipping freight value should be calculated as shipping freight only or whether the shipping freight for such products should be added to the regular shipping rate.

  • If the setting has the value of “shipping freight + regular fee”, shipping costs are calculated as a sum of a regular shipping fee plus all additional freight values of the products with the constant shipping freights from this order. This rule applies even if an order includes only the products with the defined shipping freight property.

  • If the setting has the value of “shipping freight only”, shipping costs are calculated as a sum of all freight values of the products with the constant shipping freights from this order.

To understand the rules better, let us consider the following example.

We have:

  1. Product_A with a defined shipping freight of $10;

  2. Product_B with a defined shipping freight of $20;

  3. Product_C without a defined shipping freight value;

  4. A regular delivery option at $12 per order.

If the setting Shipping cost for products with a defined shipping freight value should be calculated is set to “shipping freight + regular fee”:

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing Product_A + Product_B + Product_C will be $42 ($10 freight + $20 freight + $12 regular delivery fee);

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing Product_A + Product_B will be also $42 ($10 freight + $20 freight + $12 regular delivery fee);

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing the Product_C only will be $12 (the regular delivery fee).

If the setting Shipping cost for products with a defined shipping freight value should be calculated as is set to “shipping freight only”:

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing Product_A + Product_B + Product_C will be $42 ($10 freight + $20 freight + $12 regular delivery fee);

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing Product_A + Product_B will be $30 ($10 freight + $20 freight);

  • The total shipping cost for an order containing the Product_C only will be $12 (the regular delivery fee).
