    Hi, I am using option 5 shipping. I am using weight (grams) for units to calculate the bands. My first band is up to 100 units (100grams) and the cost is $1.60. In my buy now button for one product the units=40 and the qty=1. I was expecting that the shipping would be $1.60 because 40 units is less than 100 but the system calculated the shipping as $64. This is $1.60 x 40. I must not understand something quite fundamental. Please help! Thanks. Richie

    Sounds as though you should be using option 7.

    Option 5 charges the 'COST' value for each unit in the band. Option 7 charges it for the whole band.

    Some shipping help documents are available at

    Hi Alan,
    I think you are right. I don't think the descriptions are very clear. I will study that link you sent. Thank you!
