USPS Flat Rate and Weighted Rates?

I'm confused as to how to set up shipping costs on my store for both USPS Flate Rate AND USPS weighted rates for packages. I want to offer FR prices for larger, heavier purchases, but weighted rates for smaller purchases that cost less than a FR amount. How do I do this?

Hi Ravishsoap!


Here's a guide I've found useful in my experimentation with Shopify stores in the past:


Shipping is definitely one of the trickier pieces of configuration. If the guide itself isn't self-explanatory, can you try entering a weighted rate threshold that starts when the flat rate shipping would become cheaper? For example, let's say the flat rate is $8.00 and you start using it when packages are 13 ounces.


If that doesn't work, let me know. I'd like to see if we can troubleshoot this together.
