    OK. I have a few products that are free shipping, but most things have a flat shipping rate. How do I work around that so that the items that are free shipping don't end up getting the flat rate tacked on at checkout?

    You have to get rid of the flat rate shipping. Use option 7 and set your table to "upto .9=0" "the rest=your shipping cost" Then give each product that has shipping a unit value of 1 and give the items that don't get shipped unit value of 0

    A slightly lazier way is to check the units=price box for option 7 in Debbie's solution and then specify noship for the free shipping products.

    That saves having to specify any units values.

    UNITS COST
    1 ___ your charge

    But this version will only work if you are not using discountpr or pay.cfm.

    P.S. I assume you meant a flat shipping rate per order rather than per item.
