# shipping Shipping cost error when using 'Fee per Item'

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

## Recommended Posts

Hello.
I have set up 2 products, both with 4 shipping options. I also added a 'Fee per Item' for each shipping option.

It is my understanding that it should work like this;
Purchase 1 book + \$12 shipping = Total \$12
Purchase 2 books + \$12 shipping + \$5 Fee per item  = Total \$17

The problem is when someone is buying 1 book it's charging them \$17 shipping (adding them both together).

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Claire.

Hi Claire

On Squarespace, the Fee Per Item is charged on each item, including the first item.

If you'd like to charge \$12 for one book and \$17 for two books, you'll need to set the Per Order Fee to \$7 (\$5 lower than your current rate) and keep the Fee Per Item as \$5.

Hey Paul.

Thanks for jumping in. That makes sense now, thanks for taking the time to explain that.

Hope you're well
Claire.
