Way 1. Exclude Products from Shipping Cost Calculation
All the products other than digital require shipping. If an order requires shipping, the customer must choose a shipping method.
The Use for free shipping checkbox under Administration → Shipping & taxes → Shipping methods → <Desired Shipping Method> allows you to use a shipping method for free shipping.
Tick the Use for free shipping checkbox, if you want to exclude the products with the enabled Free shipping option from the shipping price calculation. Then CS-Cart will calculate the shipping price for other products from the order in accordance with Shipping charges.
If you leave the checkbox unticked, CS-Cart will calculate the shipping price for all the products from the order in accordance with Shipping charges.
Way 2. Assign No Shipping Method to Orders
If you don’t want to assign a shipping method to orders at all, go to Administration → Shipping & taxes → Shipping methods and either delete all the shipping methods, or change their status to Disabled.
Way 3. Hide the Shipping Method Choice
If you want to offer free shipping and don’t want a user to choose a shipping method, complete the following steps:
Go to Settings → Checkout and untick the Display “Shipping method” step checkbox.
Go to Administration → Shipping & taxes → Shipping methods and either create a new shipping method, or adjust an existing method as follows:
Set the minimal Position possible (for example, 0) to make the method come first on the list.
Set the Rate calculation to Manual.
Switch to the Shipping Charges tab and configure the charges so that the Rate value for the shipping method equals 0.
