  • Taking a beating on shipping

    I am trying to figure out what to do with our current shipping model.
    We drop ship direct from the manufacturer at $9 flat rate per item. We are currently offering free shipping on all purchases over $150. The issue is that we are losing our margin as the customer buys more items, especially cheap ones.
    Most sales are usually 2 items that work together.

    What is the best way to deal with a situation like this? Do I skip offering free shipping? Can 3dcart do a $5 per item for orders over $100 and do calculated under $100? Any other ideas?

    User defined Calculated yes with a max range of $100
    items 100+ $5.00 shipping fee can be done on the product level.

    (Download products sort by price and have at it. Do a sample product first so you can locate the shipping field copy for all products over $100)

    Hope this helps!
