Setting up Shipping Options

In order to use shipping rates, you must first select your shipping mode. There are three shipping modes detailed below.

Free Shipping

The Free Shipping mode is selected by default when you first create your store. There are no configuration options for this mode. When a customer visits your store they will not be able to select any shipping options, but it will automatically show up as $0.00 for shipping in the cart and order summary.

Weight-Based Shipping

When you first select the Weight-Based Shipping mode, you will see a dialog box that warns you that all shipping rates will be deleted. Since this is the first time selecting this option, just click "OK" to proceed. NOTE: If you have previously defined rates for Price-Based Shipping, these will be deleted! Previous shipping methods and regions will still stay intact.

Switch Shipping Mode

Once you select "OK", Cart66 will automatically create a Ground method as well as an Express method. Both of these are currently disabled. If you have already created methods within Cart66, these will appear instead.

Default Weight-Based Rates

You can enable any of these rates, or create your own. These rates are based off of a default region called "The World". This just means that anyone, anwhere will receive these rates regardless of their location. To specify specific regions, click on the regions tab.

You will be presented with two options, "Places" and "Postal/Zip codes".
