Setting up Flat Rate Shipping Options

Quick Shopping Cart® lets you set up flat rate shipping options to charge your customers custom shipping fees. You can base shipping fees on either a percentage of the order total or a fixed flat rate to add to the order total.

For international shipping options to display in your Website settings, you must enable them in your Storefront Preferences. For more information, see Using the preferences manager
