    I use option 7 and want the cart to charge $10.77 shipping for the 1st item and $5.42 shipping for each additional item. It does this up to the 5th item. Starting at the 6th item and on up it gives free shipping even though we have "the rest" set at $5.42. What am I missing?

    When I went to support, configure cart, shipping before posting last night it had .... And so on for up to five bands. So maybe not possible to continue charging $5.42 for each additional item after the 5th item?

    Standard shipping options 4 and 6 use the item count. Options 5 and 7 work with the units total so you presumably have given all product a units values of 1 if using option 7.

    Yes, there are only five bands. Options 6 and 7 add the relevant COST values, giving a maximum of your 5 cost values. However, options 4 and 5 MULTIPLY the COST value by the UNITS in the band so there is no maximum.

    You could achieve your objective with the table

    UNITS COST
    1 ____ 10.77
    rest __ 5.42

    by using option 4 and not bothering about the units value, or using option 5 if you give each item a units value of 1,.
