Under Price Matrix you can now determine the shipping costs for this shipping method. For this you have a price matrix at your disposal in which you can define several price rules.
This matrix you can first provide with a restriction (1). Here you can select a rule from the rulebuilder or create a new one and the price matrix will only be used if this condition is fulfilled. If you do not select a rule here, this price matrix will always be used for this shipping method.
To create the price matrix you choose whether it is based on predefined properties (4) or on rules from the Rule Builder (5).
As soon as you have created a price matrix, you can add another rule to the price matrix via the button Add new price rule (2). Via the context menu (3) you can remove or duplicate the complete price matrix.
With the button Add more price matrix (6) you can add another price matrix, in which you can then enter a restriction (1) and price rules (4 and 5) again.
If you create the price matrix after a property, the properties number of positions, shopping cart value, weight and volume are available to you.
In the example shopping cart value such a price matrix would look like this:
Here you can fill the price matrix with as many price rules as you like with the respective prices. In this case the first price rule is:
Cart price from 0 to 5 = Price: 4.90€
The second price rule is:
Cart price from 5 to any = Price: 3.90€
You can also build the price matrix according to a self-defined rule from the Rule Builder instead of according to one of the predefined properties.
In this example, the first price rule is:
Shipping Country is Germany = Price: 4.90€
The second price rule is:
Shipping Country is not Germany = Price: 8.90€
For a shipping method to be used by the customer, it must be assigned to the respective sales channel.
In the basic settings of your sales channel you will find the item shipping methods. Here you can enter all available shipping methods as well as a standard shipping method.
