All of Pulse Commerce real-time shipping calculations are by weight, so if you use real-time shipping carriers the fees will be calculated by weight automatically.
Note: The weight of each product is entered in the Product Editor (Products > Product Catalog Manager).
Set up custom shipping fees by weight:
- Go to Settings > Ship Methods & Rates.
- Click the Custom Shipping tab.
- In the Add New Shipping Option table, enter a Shipping Type. For example, By Weight.
- Ensure that By Price is NOT selected.
- Click the Add New button. This new method is added above the Add New Shipping Option header.
- Click the Edit Weights link to specify one or more weight ranges.
- Enter your custom weight scheme. Click the help icon on the page for detailed examples and instructions.
