- Additionally, if there is no 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' set for a product, then its shipping cost will be default shipping cost.

'Max/Min' field configuration.
1) If Product A have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as $20 and Product B have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as $23, then the final shipping cost will be $23 for Max Configuration. On the other hand, final shipping cost will be $20 for Min Configuration.
2) If Product A have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as $20 and Product B have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as $23 and Default Shipping Cost is 40, then the final shipping cost will be $40 for Max Configuration. On the other hand, for Min Configuration the final shipping cost will be $20.
3) If Product A have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as $20 and Product B
have 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' as 0 and Default Shipping Cost is 30, then the final shipping cost will be $30 for Max Configuration. On the other hand, for Min Configuration the final shipping cost will be $20.
- Display Default Rate: If set to 'Yes', then the default rate shown below will be used to calculate the shipping cost for all products.
- Default Product Shipping Cost: This will become the base shipping cost if no products have shipping price assigned to them individually.
- Multiple Qty: If same product is added multiple times, then the shipping cost for each individual product will be calculated based on the number of product quantity.
For Example: Suppose 'Flat Rate Shipping Cost' for Product A is $5, then ordering 3 quantities of this product, total shipping cost will become $15.
