You will need to configure shipping charges for your physical products within the Admin Setup section of Maropost for Commerce. To access this section, mouse over your user name in the right corner of the menu bar, then select "Admin Setup" from the Settings menu.
Once in the Admin Setup page, click on "Shipping" in the left nav bar and then click the [+Shipping Zone] button.
- Name -- enter the name of this Shipping Zone.
- Shipping Countries -- Click the [Add Country] button. Once you select a country from the list, select which states/provinces the shipping charges will be applied to.
- [Add Country] -- Click this button again if the same shipping zone will be applied to more than one country.
Use this option if you want shipping charges to be assessed back on the total value of the shopping cart. You can create as many different Price-Based Rates as you want for the same Shipping Zone.
For example, you may want to offer three different shipping rates only to customers located in the United States and Canada shipping zone:
- Express One-day Shipping
- 2-3 Day Shipping
- Standard Shipping
First, you'll create a Shipping Zone just for the United States and Canada. Next, you will create three different rates, each with their own Rate Amount.
Lastly, you'll create another Shipping Zone which includes all the other countries that you ship your product to, and create what ever shipping rates apply. You must create at least one shipping rate for each shipping zone.
Use this option if you prefer to assess shipping charges based on the total weight of the items in the shopping cart. For this option to work properly, you must have assigned weights to each of your physical products.
