In some cases you may wish the shipping rate to be calculated based on the cart totals as opposed to the warehouse totals (the latter is the default in Dropship/Ship Manager).
This configuration requires you to use Premium Matrixrate to configure shipping rates that will apply to the cart.
- Enable Premium Matrixrate and specify shipping rates for the cart, see example CSV file provided, which offers a flat rate of $9.99 for under $100 cart and free shipping over $100.
- Enable Dropship/Ship Manager and configure warehouses and products as normal, but do not select Premium Matrixrate as a shipping method for any of the warehouses. You can configure alternative shipping rates for each warehouse e.g. express shipping. These will be charged per warehouse.
- Under System > Configuration > Dropship (or Ship Manager), set “Use Cart Price in Calculations” to “Yes”.
