How To Adjust The Final Shipping Cost

Do you want to ensure that your customers never pay more than a certain amount for shipping? Would you like to offer a set mark-down? You can use Intuitive Shipping to adjust the final shipping cost for each Shipping Method within a Shipping Scenario.

Use these steps to set the Minimum or Maximum, or apply a Mark Up or Mark Down to the final shipping cost.

Set The Minimum Shipping Cost

Adjusting the Minimum lets you control the lowest amount a customer will pay for shipping.

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Shipping Scenarios from the drop-down list.
  • Under Shipping Methods, click on the Shipping Method you want to have a limited cost or add a new one.
  • Scroll down to the Adjust Final Shipping Cost (Optional) section.
  • Under Minimum Cost, enter the minimum amount you want your customer to be charged for this Shipping Method. If the actual shipping cost is lower than this amount, it will be adjusted to the Minimum Cost.
  • Click the Save button to save your Shipping Method settings!

Set The Maximum Shipping Cost

Adjusting the Maximum lets you set a cap on the amount your customer will pay for shipping.

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Shipping Scenarios from the drop-down list.
  • Under Shipping Methods, click on the Shipping Method you want to have a limited cost or add a new one.
  • Scroll down to the Adjust Final Shipping Cost (Optional) section.
  • Under Maximum Cost, enter the maximum amount you want your customer to be charged for this Shipping Method. If the actual shipping cost exceeds this amount, it will be adjusted to the Maximum Cost.
  • Click the Save button to save your Shipping Method settings!

Apply A Shipping Cost Mark-up or Mark-down

By adjusting the Mark Up or Mark Down, you can establish a predetermined amount or percentage to increase or decrease the final shipping cost.

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Shipping Scenarios from the drop-down list.
  • Under Shipping Methods, click on the Shipping Method you want to have a limited cost or add a new one.
  • Scroll down to the Adjust Final Shipping Cost (Optional) section.
  • Under Mark Up/ Mark Down, enter the amount of adjustment. You can mark up or mark down by a flat rate amount – e.g. $5.00 – or a percentage – e.g. 5%. Enter the rate or percentage as a positive number to mark up. Enter the rate or percentage as a negative number to mark down.

When entering a Flat Rate, the ‘$’ is not required. Simply enter a numerical value – e.g. to mark up by $5.00, enter ‘5.00’. When entering a Percentage, the ‘%’ is required – e.g. to mark up by 5%, enter ‘5%’.

  • Click the Save button to save your Shipping Method settings!

You can set a Minimum and Maximum and add a Mark Up or Mark Down to the same Shipping Method.
