In Portfoliobox, the shipping cost is based on the total weight of an order. You can therefore set shipping zones with different shipping costs and add the weight of each product.
Open the Store Settings
To create shipping zones, you first need to open the store settings:
- Click Settings at the top right corner of the admin panel.
- Click Store Settings.
- Click on General Settings at the top of the dialogue window and choose Shipping.
Choose a Shipping method
Manually Handled Shipping
You can choose to handle the shipping cost manually. For that choose Disable in the dropdown menu.
After you have received an order, you can check the shipping cost based on the customer's location. Then you will have to declare shipping cost on a manual receipt.
Shipping Cost based on Order Weight
Shipping Zones & Shipping rates
You can now set shipping zones (locations) and shipping rates (costs).
- Choose Calculate Shipping Cost based on Order Weight in the dropdown menu.
- Click on Add New Shipping Cost.
- Choose a shipping country in the list.
- Click on Add New Weight Rate. By default, three rates are set:
- 0kg - 3kg
- 3kg - 6kg
- 6kf - 100kg
You are free to add as many shipping zones and shipping rates as you wish.
Shipping to the rest of the world
NB! When you set your first shipping zone, a second zone called Everywhere Else is created at the same time. You can choose to disable this zone if you only want to ship to location you specify.
If you want to offer free shipping for up to 500gr, you need to set up a new shipping rate: 0kg - 0.5kg, with shipping cost 0.
