  • Name — it will be displayed in the shopping cart exactly as you write it in the form. It is also the only mandatory field.

  • Price — the price defined here does not include VAT. VAT will be automatically added to the shopping cart and is defined in the store settings.

  • Reduced price — reduced shipping net price

  • Minimum shopping cart value for a reduced price — if the shopping cart subtotal amount is equal to or greater than this value, the reduced price applies.

  • Availability — it defines if the particular method is visible in the cart — if disabled, the shipping method will be hidden from the shopping cart.

  • Description — a short additional text that will be displayed when the shipping method is selected in the shopping cart.

  • Delivery method  attach a delivery provider's service to this shipping method. If selected, the options list will be populated automatically, e.g. with pick-up point locations.

  • Options — each line here represents one additional option from which the customer can choose the most suitable one. For example, if you provide shipping to parcel machines you should add the different locations of the machines as options or if you have added a carrier service, the options can be listed as different times during which the package is delivered.
