Shipping Method By Price

Primary Parcel provides you the flexibility to define a minimum and maximum shipping cost. You can charge a percentage of the product price as the shipping cost if it falls under the defined maximum and minimum limit.

For example, a customer selects an item worth $69.5 (for a single Fulfillment Service). As per the rates set above, the Shipment cost displayed will be: 10% of $69.5 = $6.95.


Another example, the cost of item in an order is $30, so the shipment rate as per the percent of total price will be $3, but as the minimum shipping charge is set at $5, the customer will see the Shipping Rate as $5. Same will be applicable for any orders above $1000 for the above configuration, i.e. any order above $1000, the shipment cost will not exceed $100.
