How To

Classification Level Shipping

Classification level shipping rates allow you to assign shipping rates to multiple inventory items that all belong to the same group, or "class". These shipping amounts are generally used to apply rates to large groups of inventory. Once a shipping method and the rates have been added to a Classification, all inventory items assigned to that Classification will use the same shipping method and rates when an item is sold and an invoice is generated.

Please Note: A Classification shipping rate will only be used if the inventory item record does not have a specified rate at the item level. See the Shipping Rules Hierarchy for more information.
