    Post Magento Flat Shipping Rates

    A flat shipping rate refers to a fixed predefined cost for shipping which can be applied per item or per shipment, according to your preferences.

    To define flat shipping rates:

    1. Select System > Configuration > Shipping Method.

    2. Expand the Flat Rate section to define a fixed predefined amount for shipping.

    3. In the Enabled field, select Yes. The flat rate method then appears as an option in the shopping cart and on the shipping page during the checkout.

    4. The contents of Title and Method name fields appear in the frontend

    5. In the Type field, specify the entity to which the shipping fee applies, such as Per Item. In this case, the shipping fee is dependent on the number of items shipped. If you set the rate to be per item, it is multiplied by the total quantity of items in the shopping cart. If you have two of the same item or two different items, then the rate is the same. You can also select Per Order in this field.

    6. In the Ship to applicable countries field, you can select the Specific Countries option to enable access to the field under it in which you can select specific countries, so that the appropriate (and different) shipping rates are applied to the relevant countries

    7. In the Sort Order field, specify the position of this shipping method in relation to the other shipping methods offered to the customer.

    Level rate is a fixed, predefined charge that can be applied per thing, or per shipment. Level rate is a straightforward arrangement, particularly when utilized with the level rate bundling that is accessible from certain bearers. On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration. In the board on the left under Sales, select Shipping Methods.

    I'd like to suggest a ready-made solution that needs no coding knowledge which is known as Table Shipping Rate Magento 2 Extension. This is a very simple and unique tool that allows the store to create an unlimited number of shipping methods with individual rates.

    The best part of this tool is that it also hiding the shipping method for unavailable areas. Store owners can easily import/export shipping rate table using CSV files using.

    Highlighted Features-
    • It provides a fully customizable interface of the extension from admin that is easily manageable.
    • Ability to enable/disable this extension from the backend. Very easy to manage.
    • This extension provides the ability to create unlimited shipping rates
    • Store owners can import and export shipping rates.
    • Table shipping rate can be set on for ZIP code, weight, price, or quantity of the product, countries.

    You set table rate shipping inside the System menu accessed via Magento's backend. While logged in as admin, navigate to System > Configuration and then, in the left menu under Sales, select Shipping Methods. That should bring up the table rates menu in the window to the right.
