How to setup customized Shipping Rates

How do I set this up?


From 1 to 150 pounds we quote UPS ground.


From 150 + we use a table rate chart with different weight ranges, different states and different prices depending on which state and which weight range.


and then we have some products that weight less than 150 but they are 10+ ft. long and can only ship with the weight table.


How would that be setup?

shipping may be either exactly accurate or an overestimate.

one possibility for such a setup --

(a) first, be certain a shipping_weight value is valid and accurate for all items;
valid shipping_weight should include a number, space, and google-defined unit;
123.45 oz

(b) for products that weigh less than 150 and are also 10+ feet long,
add a shipping_label -- e.g. long-weights -- and configure a weight
based table for that label.

(c) for the weight-table with state differences, use a separate
shipping_label value and separate table -- e.g. state-weights

for all other items, do not submit any shipping
and do not submit any shipping_label information --
the default carrier-calculated values should then
be assigned to all such items.


note that all shipping rates for all items must be direct-to-consumer.

importantly, be certain to verify the item's assigned shipping by clicking
on the item's title within the products-tab of the merchant-center-account.

as an aside, for all items assigned as carrier-calculated, google will require
proper and valid shipping_length, shipping_width, and shipping_height; that,
similarly to shipping_weight require a number, space, and google-defined unit;
123.45 cm
