A shipping profile in RevCent is a collection of shipping rates along with providers and rules for properly assigning a shipping to a customers' purchase and/or subscription renewal. When a customer makes a purchase with shippable products, the rules within a shipping profile are compared to the purchase and any matching rules produce the final shipping price, shipping provider and shipping method.

A shipping profile can contain one or more shipping rates. The profile shipping rates are what are used to determine the amount to charge a customer for shipping. Add a rate by clicking the Add Rate button. Each rate contains rules you set in order for RevCent to identify the specific rate and amount to charge.
Important: In order for a shipping entry to be created, at least one rate within any applicable shipping profiles must match the purchase based on the rules within the rate(s). If no matching rates are found, RevCent will not create a shipping entry for the purchase.
Each rate is its own separate entity. The rate contains the provider, provider method, your cost and the amount to charge the customer. A matching rate will successfully create a shipping entry at charge the customer the customer rate you specify. If there are multiple matching rates, RevCent will use the most profitable rate (customer_rate - cost).
Important: All rules within a rate must pass in order for the rate to be considered valid for the specific purchase. You do not have to create a rule for each rule subset (product, product group, revenue), however you must create at least one rule throughout the entire rate.
Example 1: You can create a rate with only a revenue rule, stating that if purchase amount is greater than X, then charge customer the specified customer rate.
Example 2: You can create a rate with only a product rule, stating that if purchase contains a quantity of more than X quantity of a specific product then charge customer the specified customer rate.
Example 3: You can create a rate with both a product rule and a revenue rule that if purchase contains at least X quantity a specific product and the purchase amount is greater than Y, then charge customer the specified customer rate.
