Shipping and Sales Tax

Top  Previous  Next

Tangible products are physical as opposed to intellectual property. Tangible products typically require shipping and/or sales tax amounts to be calculated and added to each order. (Products that are set to add shipping, handling, and sales tax can ALSO deliver downloadable products and mail out key codes.)


There are two places in the shopping cart administration where shipping calculations are managed.


1.The main Shipping Method and Storewide settings are managed through Configuration > Shipping.
2.Settings that apply to each product individually are managed through Edit Catalog > Shipping (for each product).

(Storewide and per product shipping calculations can be mixed in each order.)


Local and international handling charges (per order) are set in Shipping.


Sales tax regions and rates are set up in Configuration > Taxes.
