Blending rules affect the way that methods are added together for blended rates.
Without blending rules, blended rates are calculated by simpling adding each preferred method’s rate from each product group present in an order together.
Examples of what you can use blending rules for:
- Free shipping for some product groups when the entire order total is over a certain amount
- Free shipping for some products groups when just those product groups order total is over a certain amount.
- Free shipping for certain product groups if some other product group is present in an order
- Discount the blended rate by a percentage based on the number of product groups present.
