In some cases you might want to alter your default shipping settings for a product. For example, if you sell electronics, you might not want to ship a 200-pound television to Canada. You can override shipping for selected products with a Shipping Overrides file, which is similar to the inventory file templates.
There are two types of shipping overrides:
Creates an entirely new shipping charge.
Adds an extra charge to the current shipping charge.
For examples and valid values, see the Overrides Examples section below.
To create a shipping override, follow these steps:
To remove a shipping override, follow these steps:
This example of an Additive setting allows shipping to display the standard shipping amount plus the additive amount.
Since Type1 is "Additive," ShippingAmt1 ($18.99) will be added to the amount found in the shipping settings. For example, if regular shipping is $5.00, ShippingAmt1 ($18.99) is added for a total of $23.99, which will be displayed online.
|001||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||18.99||Additive||False|
|002||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||18.99||Additive||False|
|003||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||18.99||Additive||False|
|004||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||18.99||Additive||False|
This example of an Exclusive setting allows shipping to display as $0.00.
A "False" setting in this case allows the overrides to be applied to this SKU, ShipOption (locale), Service Level, and so on.
|001||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||False|
|002||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||False|
|003||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||False|
|004||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||False|
In this example, a "True" setting prevents ShipOption from being offered on the list of SKUs.
|001||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||True|
|002||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||True|
|003||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||True|
|004||USD||Std Cont US Street Addr||0.00||Exclusive||True|
