Troubleshooting checklist

If the Shipping Table Rates method you’ve created is not displayed:

  • Check if the shipping carrier is enabled. To do this, please go to Stores > Configuration > Sales > Shipping Methods > Amasty Shipping Table Rates > Enabled for Checkout > Yes. Also, please check if the method you're willing to see at the Frontend is Active: Sales > Operations > Shipping Table Rates.
  • If the shipping carrier is enabled, but the method is still not visible, make sure that the shipping method contains all the rates related to the shipping types of products contained in the cart. To be displayed to customers, the shipping method should contain rates for all shipping types, that are found in the cart. Otherwise, the shipping method will not be visible. If the mentioned issue is a reason, the method will become available after adding a new rate with a Shipping Type “All” to the method.

If the For products with different shipping types field in the shipping methods settings is set to “Sum up rates”, but the rates don't sum up:

  1. Check if these rates belong to the same shipping method. If not, the rates will not be summed up as the setting, mentioned above, works only for the rates with different Shipping Types in the selfsame shipping method.

If the shipping rule you’ve created doesn’t work, please, make sure, that:

  1. there are no other active rules, that should not be applied: if two or more restrictions are in the active status, they will be applied contemporaneously;
  2. the conditions are set correctly.

To avoid undesirable results, make sure there are no active rules that shouldn't be applied. Let’s check the situation: you have several shipping rules and all of them are set as active. Rule 1 has the highest priority, Rule 2 has lower priority and Rule 3 has the lowest one. That’s how it will work when the cart contents meet all active shipping rules conditions:

  1. Rule 1 will be applied first. It is set to replace a shipping rate of any one item in the cart with $0.50.
  2. Rule 2 will be applied the second. It replaces the cost of shipping for the whole order with $15.
  3. Rule 3 will be applied the last. This rule sets free shipping for all items in the cart. This means, that shipping rate for the whole order will constitute $0.

Use Conditions tab to restrict the cases of the rule application.

Please check this article to learn how to avoid general mistakes when configuring rules conditions, or how the certain issues can be fixed.
