How Shipping Costs Are Calculated

Shipping rates are calculated by taking the rate of the product with most expensive shipping rate and then adding the bundle rate for all the other products in the cart. The best way to demonstrate this is with a couple examples.

Suppose you sell t-shirts, guitars, and amplifiers and you have the shipping rates set up as follows:

Product Shipping Rate Shipping Bundle
T-Shirt $8.00 $4.00
Guitar $30.00 $15.00
Amplifier $50.00 $30.00

Suppose your customer buys 3 t-shirts. The shipping costs would be calculated as
follows:

Product Shipping Reason
T-Shirt $8.00 The most expensive shipping rate of the products purchased in this order.
T-Shirt $4.00 The bundle shipping rate for the t-shirt.
T-Shirt $4.00 The bundle shipping rate for the t-shirt.
TOTAL $16.00

Now, suppose another customer buys 1 t-shirt, 1 guitar, and 1 amplifier. The shipping costs would be calculated as follows:

Product Shipping Reason
Amplifier $50.00 The most expensive shipping rate of the products purchased in this order.
Guitar $15.00 The bundle shipping rate for the guitar.
T-Shirt $4.00 The bundle shipping rate for the t-shirt.
TOTAL $69.00

So, in summary, add the shipping rate for the product with the most expensive shipping rate, then add the bundle shipping rate for each additional product.
