Override default shipping prices

To use this feature,

For existing products – you have to navigate to your product edit screen, which is Hastakalakart.com -> Dashboard -> Products -> Edit and navigate to the shipping tab.

And for newly created products – The next screen after adding the basic details of a product navigate to the shipping tab.

Now, you have to click on the checkbox override shipping and you will have the option to add the additional shipping cost for that product. You can place a positive or negative value according to your needs. Like if your products base shipping price is less than the global price, you can place a minus value.

Lets say your base shipping price is set to INR 100/- but for Delhi, the base shipping price would be INR 50/-. So you can write -50 in Additional Cost in the below screen.

This cost would be added with the parent shipping prices. That means, if you have set a base shipping price of INR 100 and additional cost of INR 50, the base shipping price for that product will be INR 150/-.

Multiple quantity

Quantity: 5

Base Shipping Price: INR 100 + INR 50 from override = INR 150

Per Quantity Additional Price:  INR 50 from override = INR 50

Delhi, Haryana: INR 10

So the total shipping cost for 5 product would be 150×1 + 50×4 + 10 = INR 360/-

  3. Per product additional price: If someone buys more than one product from your store, you will define the shipping price for the other product here. Like you sell Pottery and Vases, so this one is not about if someone buys more than 1 Pottery; this price will be applicable if someone buys Vases with Pottery.
  4. Per quantity additional price: If someone buys more than one unit of your product, then this option will be useful for you to determine. Like someone buys 2 or more Pottery, so this price will be added to every count after 1.
  5. Processing time: This has nothing to do with the calculation. It is just a simple way to display the time required before delivering the product.
