What Other Methods can I use to Calculate Postage Costs?

We recommend that you avoid using Fixed Postage Costs wherever possible and instead rely on Postage Rules as it generally provides a more flexible, simpler system which is easier to manage and relatively straight-forward for your customers to understand. However, you do not need to use Postage Rules if you prefer not to. Postage costs for each of your products can be calculated using one of the following methods:
  • Default Postage/Postage Rules - The postage cost will be calculated using any Postage Rules you have created.
  • Free Postage - Postage costs do not apply to this product. This setting will override any Postage Rules you have created.
  • Fixed Postage Cost - Product using a Fixed Postage Cost will use its own unique postage cost. This setting will override any Postage Rules you have created.
You can set how each of your product's postage is calculated while editing a product in the Manage > Products section of the control panel.
