While dealing with the shipping fee, there come the troubles that sometimes, the shipping rate is too high that it cannot attract customers or it is too low to cover the packing cost. In addition to that, you may want to give your customer a discount at the checkout or mark up the shipping rate by adding a percentage or a flat fee. If the rate contains both of them, the flat fee will be added after the percentage is calculated.
