Freight costs can be distributed in three different ways:
|Value||This is the default method used. Freight costs are distributed by value, so the more expensive items receive a larger portion of the freight cost. This method is most appropriate if all your items have similar weights and dimensions.|
|Weight||This method uses weight - the heavier items receive a larger portion of the freight. The weight of each product is specified in the product details page. This method is most appropriate if the weights of your products vary significantly.|
|Cubic Metres||The method uses volume - the larger items receive a larger portion of the freight. The dimensions of each product are specified in the product details page. This method is most appropriate if the size of your products vary significantly.|
Customs Duty is distributed over the entire order by the value of the products, i.e. the more expensive goods receive a larger portion of the Duty.
Yes. Please read the help article on How to Add Custom Landed Cost field.
While the field description can't be changed, entering weight as pounds or ounces will work provided you enter the units consistently across all your products, and the weight is in whole units. The same goes for dimensions.
