    Hi Risa,
    The shipping recaluates based on monetary order total for me
    automatically as items are added to the cart.
    This is how I configured the shipping:

    I used option #7
    Then checked "Automatically set units to equal the price (shipping by value)"

    Then made 1 shipping zone table with the following values:
    up to 25 ------ 5.95 ($5.95 shipping charge)
    25 ------ 2.00 ( would be $7.95 shipping charge)
    100 ---- 1.00 (would be $8.95 shipping charge)
    100----- 2.00 (would be $10.95 shipping charge)
    and the rest ---6.00 (would be $16.95 shipping charge)

    which translates to:
    $00.01 to $25.00 shipping rate $5.95
    $25.01 to $50.00 shipping rate $7.95
    $50.01 to $150.00 shipping rate $8.95
    $150.01 to $250.00 shipping rate $10.95
    $250.01 and up shipping rate $16.95

    So as the monetary value of the order increases
    the cart updates the shipping charge to match the monetary value.
    The customer does not need to choose the correct rate.

    Hope this helps explain.
