3. Set up your shipping rates

In order for the shopping cart to work, you will need to add shipping rates (with the exception of downloadable products, where shipping rates are not required). It's a great idea to offer free shipping, if you can. You can add multiple shipping rates and can configure shipping rate by price or weight/dimensions.

4. Configure your tax zones

We have added two tax zones for you by default: 'New Zealand' and 'Rest of the World'. You should delete 'Rest of the World', unless you are selling globally.
