How to set up shipping price
You can define the shipping price as a fixed value or set the system to display the text “Carrier’s Rates Apply”.
Action Threshold: the minimum order value which the shipping price applies to.
Shipping Price: fixed shipping price.
Carrier’s Rates Apply: if this checkbox is selected, the customer is displayed the text Carrier’s Rates Apply and the total value net of the shipping price while placing the order.
Attention: if the Action Threshold field in the first line contains a number larger than zero, this shipping option is not available for orders with the value smaller than the one in the first line.
Setting up available payment methods
You have to define the payment methods available to the customer after selecting each of the shipping options. First, set up the payment methods in Settings → Payment.
Use Payment field to select the payment methods available to the customer with the selected shipping option.

Multi-Line Address: postcode, street, house number, apartment: while placing the order, the customer can provide the exact delivery address including the postcode, the street, the house number, and the apartment.
