For shipping, there are three shipping options.

1. Flate Rate Shipping - How many products a customer purchases, doesn't matter. Shipping cost is fixed.

2. Product Wise - Shipping cost is calculated by each product shipping cost. You can set product shipping costs when creating or editing a product if the product-wise shipping cost is enabled.

3. Shipping Profile - Shipping cost will be calculated by each product Shipping profile. Below is a details explanation of how a shipping profile actually worked.

Shipping rate and shipping location are very important parts of our e-commerce. TL Commerce will give you the features to maintain shipping rates and shipping locations for selected products like Shopify.
