How 'Shipped Alone' and 'With Others' Works 

When your customer orders only a single copy of a product its Shipped Alone rate is used.

When your customer orders more than 1 product, the  highest 'Shipped Alone' rate on the order is combined with the 'With Others' rates for the rest of the products on the order.

For example:

Say you are selling a print where 'Shipped Alone' is $8 and 'With Others' is $6. And you are also selling postcards where 'Shipped Alone' is $7 and 'With Others' is $5.

Someone orders 1 print and 1 postcard. The shipping total would be $8 + $5 = $13

Or, if someone orders 1 print and 4 postcards. The shipping total would be $8 + $5 x 4 = $28.

For lighter items, you may want to set the 'With Others' rate low or zero. For heavier items, you may want to price this a bit higher.


Flat Rate Shipping

You can set up 'flat rate' shipping by setting the 'With Others' rate for every product in your Store to $0.

Then your customers' shipping total is just the highest 'Shipped Alone' price in the order.
