Value Based Shipping allows store owner to set the shipping cost according to the value of the order. For example, you could set the “Standard” shipping rate to $9.75 for orders less than $50, $8.75 for orders between $50.01-$100, and $0 for orders greater than $100. To enable Value Based Shipping follow the steps below.
1. In the Profile Manager, set the Freight Calculator to Value Based and click Save.
2. Select Company> More> More> Value Based. The Value Based Shipping Navigator will open listing the default regions in CartGenie. You must enter the shipping rates for each region that you will ship to by expanding the region and clicking the “Add/Edit Value Based Shipping Rates” option.
3. The Value Based Shipping Manager will open. There are four columns each of which is described below.
A. Order Value Threshold (Required) – The order value threshold stores the order value break points associated with a shipping rate. Entering $50 in the first row would refer to orders less than or equal to $50. Entering $100 in the second row would refer to orders between $50.01 and $100, entering $100.01 in the third row would refer to orders greater than or equal to $100.01.
B. Standard Shipping Rate (Required) – The standard shipping rate is the lowest cost shipping rate associated with the order value threshold. Examples services would be UPS Ground and USPS Parcel Post. If the order value were $100 and the standard shipping rate is $8.75 then shoppers with orders between $50.01 and $100 will be charged $8.75 for shipping if they choose the Standard Shipping option.
C. Priority Shipping Rate (Optional) – The priority shipping rate is the mid cost shipping rate. Examples would be UPS 2 Day and USPS Priority Mail. If the order value were $100 and the priority shipping rate is $12.75 then shoppers with orders between $50.01 and $100 will be charged $12.75 for shipping if they choose the Priority Shipping option.
D. Express Shipping Rate (Optional) – The express shipping rate is the highest cost shipping rate. Examples would be UPS Overnight and USPS Express Mail. If the order value were $100 and the express shipping rate is $16.75 then shoppers with orders between $50.01 and $100 will be charged $16.75 for shipping if they choose the Express Shipping option.
