    I believe I want to use shipping method 7
    My shipping costs are $8.50 for the first 2 items.
    $12.50 for the items 3-4
    And $15 for items 5-6

    I believe that should show this way in the Shipping Zone Table
    First 2 = 8.50
    Next 2= 4 more
    Next 2=2.50 more
    6 items= 8.50+4+2.50 ( Total $15)
    Testing using the “View my cart” in the Mals dashboard
    The first 2 do in fact, charge 8.50
    If I increase the number of items in the cart to 3, shipping goes to 15 (it should be 12.50)
    If I then decrease the number of items in the cart to just 2, shipping goes to 12.50 (It should be 8.50)
    So that's not right..
    If I test thru the actual site, no shipping is charged at all.

    Then I tried setting a flat rate of 8.50
    So now the shipping zone table shows (with the $8.50 flat)
    First 2 = 0
    Next 2 = 4.00
    Next 2 = 2.50
    At least the $8.50 is charged,, but nothing higher for more items
    This page has the easiest form to test with as there are no options to choose, other than basic color.

    Your first table is correct but option 6 is what you need - it uses the item total as the units total.

    Option 7 will be using whatever units values the dashboard has for the items.
