On SoComics.com, the shipping fees are defined in advance (before buyers place orders). This system allows you to avoid having to calculate these fees at each availability confirmation of the order.

To define shipping methods and shipping fees that will be offered to buyers you have two options:

- Use the shipping methods and shipping fees grid set by SoComics.com for your country. Select option "I use the shipping methods and fees defined by SoComics.com for my country" in your account My account > My shop > Shipping fees.
