How does it works?

When users check out products, it will calculate and show total shipping cost based on total price of order that they are purchasing. Example:

  • Total price of order is between $0-$100, then shipping cost is $8
  • Total price of order is between $100-$250, then shipping cost is $13
  • Total price of order is between $250-$500, then shipping cost is $18
  • Total price of order is between $500-$800, then shipping cost is $22
  • Total price of order is between $800-$1000, then shipping cost is $30
  • Total price of order is greater than $1000, then it is free shipping

Other options

The Price Shipping method also supports some other options:
  • Select countries to apply this shipping method
  • Enter package fee
  • Select tax rule to apply for shipping cost
  • Option to enter minimum price for free shipping

Many my clients asked for this shipping method that I decided to create it. I hope that you will like it.
