Shipping Settings

You can find this section under Application Settings > Shipping Settings in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You use the Shipping Settings section to define general settings for shipping and specific settings for Parcelforce and Royal Mail.

The following settings are available:

Setting Description
General Settings
Enable Shipping by Delivery Date If enabled, Shipping will be by Delivery Date and not the standard Shipping Rules. Please Note, this should only be enabled for sites where the actual day of delivery is important and can be guaranteed.
Item Total to Calculate Shipping Cost From This determines whether the Shipping Cost is calculated from the Basket Sub Total or the Basket Total. If enabled, the Shipping Cost will be calculated from the summation of the items in the Basket before Discounts have been applied. If disabled, the Shipping Cost will be calculated from the Basket Total, i.e. the summation of the items in the Basket and the application of Discounts.
