- Use Volumetric Weight Calculation: Configure to calculate the volume weight for the product. The value of volumetric weight can be calculated directly or indirectly through the volume value of the product. The general formula for calculating the value of volumetric weight is: Volumetric Weight = Volumetric/Shipping Factor.



- Select Weight Attribute: The extension currently supports three ways of calculating volume values:
- Volumetric Weight: Directly determine the volume value of a product. Selecting this option will display the Select Weight Attribute field, which allows you to select the corresponding attribute of the product containing the volume weight value.

- Volumetric: Indirectly determine the volume weight value through the product' s volume value. Selecting this option will display two additional fields: Select Volumetric (V) Attribute and Shipping Factor.
- Select Volumetric (V) Attribute: Allows selecting the corresponding attribute of the product containing the volume value. The extension currently supports two types of inputs, namely direct V value or volumetric value via 3-dimensional LxWxH measurements (LxWxxHigh). For example, the product has a measurement of length, width, height is 10; 10; 10, respectively, the total volume is 1000, you can fill 1000 or 10x10x10.
- Shipping Factor: The ratio to convert from the volume value to the value of volumetric weight.

- Volume Attribute: Indirectly determining the value of volumetric weight by measuring the length, width, height of the product. Selecting this option will display four additional fields: Attribute 1, Attribute 2, Attribute 3 and Shipping Factor.
- Attribute 1, Attribute 2, Attribute 3 allows you to select attributes corresponding to 3 measurements of Length, Width, and Height of the product.
- Shipping Factor: The ratio to convert from the volume value to the value of volumetric weight.

On the Shipping Rates tab, the admin can view the list of rates, add, edit or delete any rates. A rate of shipping method is determined by two main parts: condition for a cart to apply that rate and how to calculate shipping fee when the cart satisfies the condition.

2.2.3.1 Add new rate

The extension now supports 3 ways to add a rate to the shipping method:
- Manually add a new rate
- Add a new rate by importing the csv file
- Add a new rate by importing rate from another shipping method

- Type 1: New Rate: At Grid Shipping Rates, click New Rate, popup and add a new shipping rate will be shown

- General > Name: Set Name for Shipping Rate
- Conditions: There are 5 main conditions that admin can set for 1 rate: Ship destination, weight of cart, total amount of cart, number of items of cart and shipping group of products in cart.
- Ship destination is determined by Country, State/ Region (only applies to some countries), Zip/ Postcode. In which, Zip/ Postcode supports String format or Range format. To use Range format, admin only need to select the Zip / Postcode Range checkbox and fill in the corresponding postcode value.
- Note: Extension supports 2 types of strings using "%" and "dash" characters. "%" is used to replace a string of indefinite length while "dash" used to replace a character.

- For example:
- Shipping location is Aberdeen in the UK with Postcode code starting with AB, you need to set Country = United Kingdom, uncheck the Zip/ Postcode Range checkbox and enter the value of the Zip/ Postcode = AB%.

- Shipping location is Aberdeen in the UK with Postcode code starting with AB12, you need to set Country = United Kingdom, uncheck the Zip/ Postcode Range checkbox and enter the value of the Zip/ Postcode = AB12 _, which is equivalent to all postcodes with 7 characters, starting with AB12, ending with any 3-character cluster, 2 characters are separated by a space " " will satisfy.

- Shipping location is Michigan in the US with Zipcode from 48001 to 49971, you need to set Country = United States, select the Zip / Postcode Range checkbox and enter the Zip / Postcode From = 48001 and To = 49971
.
- Cart weight: The weight of a cart is determined by the weight of each product in the cart. Conditions by weight are included under the From and upper limits To. When you do not want to set a limit, you can leave it blank or enter *.
- For example: For an order weighing less than 10kg to apply the shipping rate, the Weight From = 10 and To = Blank/*



- Total amount of cart: Total amount of cart calculated in Subtotal excluding Tax, including lower limit From and upper limit on To. When you do not want to set a limit, you can leave it blank or enter *.
- For example, for orders under $ 100 that apply a shipping rate, Price From = Blank/0/* and To = 100 are required.




- Number of cart items: including the limit From and the limit on To. When you do not want to set a limit, you can leave it blank or enter *.
- For example: For orders with 3-5 items that apply a shipping rate, Qty From = 3 and To = 5 should be set

- Shipping Group: Products can be assigned a certain shipping group to classify goods when shipping. For each type of goods can be assigned a certain shipping rate. Instructions for setting up the Shipping Group for the product will be detailed below.


- Settings: Here we will set the rate level to calculate ship fee. There are 4 basic types of rates:
- Product Fixed Rate: The fixed rate for each product in the cart
- Product Percentage Rate: The percentage of each product price, based on which the rate is counted
- Weight Unit Fixed Rate: The fixed rate for each weight unit. Each unit of weight will be calculated according to the weight or volumetric weight of the product, whichever is greater will receive that value.
- Order Fixed Rate: The fixed rate for the whole order
Ship fee will be equal to the sum of the rates corresponding to the cart combined. If you do not want to apply any rate for shipping, just leave that field blank. Leaving all fields blank is equivalent to the freeship for the cart.
Also in the Settings tab, you can set the estimated shipping date in the Estimated Delivery Time field, this value will be displayed in the frontend to notify customers by variable {{delivery_days}} in the shipping method name.
- After filling all the above information as desired, click Save to save the shipping rate you have just set.
