    Hoping I'm just missing this option & someone can point me in the right direction?

    I'm looking to setup shipping as follows --

    In United States
    - up to $17 = $6 shipping
    from 17.01 - $50 = $13 shipping
    from $50.01 - $100 = $18 shipping

    then need another section for Canada

    been doing this a long time & shipping never gets easier.

    TIA! :)

    Standard shipping option 7 with the units=price box checked and two zones.

    US
    UNITS COST
    17 ___ 6
    33 ___ 7
    50 ___ 5
    and if it's free over 100 for US shipping add the line
    rest _ -18

    Thx!! going to give it a try now.

    Alan, do you have a particular formula to figure that out? I'm more of a visual/creative person - not math oriented ;)

    I had the 17, 33, 50 figured out - but my cost fields is where I fail.

    With option 7 both columns are incremental. As the table where you enter the values shows

    Up to 17 UNITS COST 6
    The next 33 UNITS COST 7
    The next 50 UNITS COST 5

    Alan - thank you so much! - I got the Canadian shipping figured out. IMO this is one of the better shipping options for US customers when using priority boxes.

    I think most of my customers I have set to option 7 - however this is the first time I've done this formula. Usually add the units in the cart code.
