Vendor(s) have to enable the shipping option from here: Vendor Dashboard -> Settings -> Shipping  and set the processing time, after this they are prompted to select the shipping type which is globally set by the admin, from here the vendor has to opt for “Shipping by zone” as shown in the screenshot below:

Let’s discuss each of these shipping methods categorically-

a.Flat rate shipping: Flat Rate Shipping is a shipping method that allows you define a standard rate per item, per shipping class ( * discussed below) or per order, here’s a step-wise guide on how the vendors can setup flat rate method for their individual store.

Step i ) Select Flat rate from the given dropdown show in Pic:

Step ii)  Once you add this shipping method, it will be listed in edit zone page as shown below. As a next step, you will have to click on “Edit” button ( as shown below) to configure the flat rate method 

Let’s discuss the above fields in brief:

Method title: Enter a Title that displays to customers in checkout.

Cost: Vendors can add additional costs per item to this field. This can be left blank to disable Flat Rate except where costs are added for Shipping Classes. Note that what you enter here may factor into the overall cost in the Shipping Classes section unless it’s left blank.

Following are the place-holders which are to be kept in mind while entering the cost:

[qty] – Number of products in the cart
[fee] – An additional fee. This fee has two optional arguments.

percent – A percentage based on total order cost.
min_fee – A minimum amount. Useful when using percentages.
max_fee – A maximum amount. Useful when using percentages.

Example:
20 + ( 3 * [qty] ) – A base shipping cost of $20 plus $3 for each item in the cart.

15 + [fee percent=”5″ min_fee=”2″] – A base shipping cost of $15 plus 5% of the order total, which is at least $2.

Tax Status – Define whether or not tax is applied to the shipping amount.

Shipping class cost: If you have shipping classes, the interface adds a few more fields as shown in the above pic. These costs can be optionally entered based on the shipping class set per product( This cost will be added with the shipping cost above).

Cost of shipping class “X”- Enter the cost for a particular shipping class setup by admin.
No shipping class cost- Useful if you use the Per Class option. Otherwise, use the Cost field.
Calculation Type – Two options:
Per Order – Picks the most expensive option based on shipping costs in the cart.
Per Class – Charges shipping for each shipping class.

Step 3 : Once the above options are filled, save the above changes via clicking on “Save method settings” button.
