Shipping cost error when using 'Fee per Item'

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.
