Shipping Options

Overview

Shipping options allow you to set both straight-forward shipping options and more complex shipping rules. Possible shipping option types include:

  • Flat-rate shipping rule: This sets up standard shipping options that the user can select from on the "Checkout" page.
  • Region-based rule: This creates a rule based on the user's location.
  • Quantity-based rule: This creates a rule based on the number of units of products found in the cart.
  • Product-specific rule: This creates a rule specifically for a product.
