    Yes, Advanced shipping comes with the Premium account. And yes, you include the product's weight as its units value. The cart uses the units total in conjunction with your tables to calculate the cost.

    You might have multiple geographic zones, basing the charge on the units total. For example

    Zone UK
    Option 2-3 days

    The first 0.5 is charged 9.80 the band
    the next 0.5 is charged 1.40 the band
    the next 1 is charged 1.40 the band
    the next 3 is charged 1.40 the band
    the next 5 is charged 1.40 the band
    the next 10 is charged 5.60 the band
    the next 11.5 is charged 12.80 the band

    That takes you to 31.5kgs and 33.80 where the dhlitnow web page I was looking at stopped.
