It is highly recommended that you define a fixed price fee template if you always sell the same type of items.
As the weight of the items is the always the same, it’s easier to determine set shipping fees based solely on the shipping method used.

 

To create the template: 

  1. Go to the “Fee templates” page
  2. Select "Fixed price" in the "Type of fee template” section

    If you have already created a fee template, click on mceclip2.png first

  3. Determine the delivery fees for each delivery region

    a) You will first be asked to select a delivery method and to provide the price for shipping in your own country.

    Enter the price associated with the delivery method

    b) If you sell in other countries, repeat the action for the rest of the world by first clicking on mceclip5.png.
    If you want, you can set a specific rate for your continent by checking the appropriate box.

  4. Set the handling fees for each invoice
    This step is optional. “No” is checked by default.
    If you want to add handling fees, check "Yes" and enter your fees.
  5. Add any exceptions for your deliveries
    This step is also optional. Nothing is set by default.
    You can either provide free shipping or require delivery with tracking based on a sales amount threshold, a given number of items sold, or the chosen payment method.
    Warning: if you want to require a tracked shipping in the case of a PayPal payment, please refer to the above instructions.
  6. Enter the name of the template. To facilitate management, it’s recommended that you select a practical name which is easy to remember.

Tip: if you sell several different types of items, you can create several fee templates based on a fixed price. Example: if you primarily sell two very different categories of items (for example: stamps and postcards), you can create a fee template for the stamps which will be applied to the sale of the stamps in your shop and create another fee template for your postcards.
