Setting up Flat Rate Shipping for Testing Purposes

When you go to test that your shopping cart functions properly you’ll want to set up a shipping option for $0.01 to minimize the total transaction cost. This can easily be accomplished by modifying the “Flat Rate” shipping option.

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
  2. Go to Extensions> Shipping
  3. opencart_shipping_1

  4. Click “Edit” on the right side column for “Flat Rate” (If you have not installed it yet, you can click “install”)
  5. Adjust the “Cost” field to 0.01 (if you have not enabled this shipping option, you can enable it here as well)
  6. Click “Save

Be sure to change the shipping price back once you are done testing the website.

If you need further assistance please feel free to ask a question on our support center website.
