Delivery Charges & Settings
Primary delivery cost
This is the standard delivery charge applied to the first item in the shopping cart. It's the delivery charge of dispatching the item alone.
Secondary delivery cost
This is the delivery charge applied to each additional item in the shopping cart. It's the delivery charge of dispatching each additional item in the same shopping cart. Thus when a buyer purchases multiple, different items at the same time. It also occur when multiple quantities of the same item are purchased.
Setting delivery charges
- When creating a listing, enter the secondary cost. If you want to offer postage discounts for purchasing multiple items, this price should be lower than the primary deliver cost. See examples below.
- If you don't want to offer a discounted combined postage rate, just enter the same amount for the primary and secondary postage costs.
- If you want additional items to dispatch at no extra charge, enter $0.00 as the secondary postage cost.
Combined postage examples
- Primary postage cost (One item) = $2.00
- Secondary postage cost (Each additional item) = $0.50
- Primary postage cost = $1.00
- Secondary postage cost = $0.75
If Item A and Item B are purchased together, the total combined postage cost would equal the greater primary postage cost of the two items (Item A: $2.00), plus the secondary postage cost of the remaining item(s) (Item B: $0.75).
If three of Item A are purchased together, the total combined postage cost to the buyer would equal the primary postage cost for the first item ($2.00), plus $.50 each for the two additional items. The total combined postage cost to the buyer in this situation would be $3.00.
