In this guide, we will walk you through setting up the per item shipping module in your osCommerce estore. This creates a standard shipping price for a an item, that is added to the total for each item you purchase.
As an example, if an item has a shipping price of $5.00, and you purchase 3 of them, the total price for shipping will be $15.00.

  1. How to log into osCommerce.
  2. Select the Modules button from the navigation menu, then click the Shipping link.
  3. Click the +Install Module button.
  4. On the Modules list, select Per Item, then click the +Install Module button to the right.

  5. You will now see the Per Item module listed, select it, and click the Edit button to the right. You will see the Per item menu come up with several available fields.

    Enable Item Shipping True turns on, this shipping option, False will disable this option.
