The value of the single shipping name: In case you do not want to show the name of the warehouse, you can choose a single shipping title as the type of shipping name and then specify the name of the shipping method that will appear to the customers. Make sure to enter the name of the shipping method in both Arabic and English.
Cost calculation type: If the customer orders different products, and the products will be shipped from several warehouses, you can specify whether you want the total shipping cost to be applied from each warehouse, or the lowest value for shipping from stores with a fixed value-added, or that The largest value is applied to shipping from the warehouse with a fixed value-added.
Adding a fixed value, specify the fixed value that will be added automatically by choosing the lowest or largest cost application when calculating the cost.
