Presently I have an extra $5 for "Cold Packing" all shippments.  We now want to ship T-shirts and want to exclude the extra added charge.  Any way do so without paying for an extra shipping service.

Thanks in advance

Hi there, 

Nick here from Shopify.

Great question and I believe there is a way to do this with a workaround within the Shopify Admin/ Shipping Settings. Depending on how you have your current shipping settings set up, you could adjust the settings of the additional $5 charge for "Cold Packing" for products with a specific weight, so that when someone checks out, the weight of the product will match what you have entered in the Shipping settings. The new T-Shirts you are looking to sell, will in turn not be in the same weight class and have the additional charge added to the shipping charge. I did a test for this on my own test store and it did work. Let me know how it goes/ if you have any other questions. 

Before I go, Shopify also has a helpful document on how to add weight based manual shipping rates which you can see here

All the best, Nick
