The table rate shipping method lets you set up a table to calculate shipping rates for a
combination of conditions. The shipping rate can be based on the following:
- Weight v. Destination
- Price v. Destination
- # of Items v. Destination
If your warehouse is located in Los Angeles, it costs less to ship to San Diego than to Vermont.
You can use table rate shipping to pass the savings on to your customer.
Example 1: Price v. Destination
This example uses the Price v. Destination condition to create a set of three different shipping rates
based on the amount of the order subtotal for the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. The
asterisk (*) is a wildcard that represents all values.
Example 2: Restrict Free Shipping to the Continental United States
You can use table rates to limit free shipping to only the continental United States, while
excluding Alaska and Hawaii.
1. Create a tablerates.csv file that includes all the state destinations to which you are willing to
provide free shipping.
2. Complete the table rate configuration with the following settings:
3. Set Current Configuration Scope to the main website. Then, click the Import button to import
