Setting a Maximum and Minimum Shipping Charge


In certain scenarios you may wish to have a maximum or minimum shipping charge for a certain carrier. For example, you might want to charge the rate UPS returns for UPS small package services but charge at least $25 or you might want to charge whatever YRC returns for LTL freight but never more than $1000. You can set this up using the Minimum and Maximum charge fields on your carrier.

These settings will override any Shipping Rules you may have set up. Because of this, most merchants can leave these fields set to their default values.

Handling Fees/Discounts and per-Box surcharges are added and subtracted separately and can adjust the final price above or below these Maximum & Minimum settings.

Setting Up

On your carrier under the Advanced┬ápanel you’ll find the Minimum Shipping Fee and Maximum Shipping Fee fields. The value you enter here will override the rate returned by the carrier if under or over the values set here, respectively.

Minimum and maximum shipping fees fields. Enter the dollar values here.


If these fields are set to 0.00 they will be ignored.
