How do I set up shipping tables?

Important: BackerKit recommends charging a per-item shipping fee for streamlined costs and shipping efforts. For more information, see Add shipping fees.


Use shipping tables if you need advanced precision in your shipping fees for add-on items. With shipping tables, collect shipping fees based on quantity of items, the weight of the entire order, or using a unique shipping fee configuration for a specific item. For example, you can charge a flat shipping fee for the first item ordered and add smaller per-item fees for subsequent items.

To set up shipping tables:

  1. On the menu on the left, click Add-ons.
  2. Click the Shipping Tables tab.
  3. If necessary, create a list of countries that require distinct shipping fees.:
    1. Under Shipping Regions, click New Shipping Region.
    2. Under New shipping region, enter a name for the region and add the countries.

  4. Under Shipping Tables, click New Shipping Table.
  5. Enter a name for the table and specify the whether the table calculates shipping based on quantity or weight.
