Table rates shipment calculation

The table rate shipping method references a table of data to calculate shipping rates based on a combination of conditions, including:

  • Weight v. Destination
  • Price v. Destination
  • Number of Items v. Destination

For example, if your warehouse is in Los Angeles, it costs less to ship to San Diego than to Vermont. You can use table rate shipping to pass the savings on to your customers.

The data that is used to calculate tables rates is prepared in a spreadsheet and imported into your store. When the customer requests a quote, the results appear in the shipping estimate section of the shopping cart.
