With an online shop, managing and charging shipping fees to your clients is very important. It is therefore essential to have a good shipping fee calculation system to optimise your shop profitability.

Clients pay close attention to shipping fees. Fees too high can slow down sales while free delivery can boost sales. 

It is necessary to find the right balance between the merchant's point of view and the client's. GoodBarber offers numerous solutions to help you put in place the best fee calculation system for your business.


Delivery fee based on weight or order total price

You must first choose which will be the unit to base the calculations on. 
You have two options available :

- Based on the total weight of the order
- Based on the total amount of the order.

Be careful not to mix both options together. Only one can be used within a delivery zone, not both.

- Based on the weight
If you choose this option, you must enter the weight of each of your products in their product file for the fee calculation to be correct.

Based on the total price
If you choose to calculate the shipping fees on the total amount of the order, you don't need to set a weight for each item.
