In the Charge Name field, select Freight Costs, Application Method is Lumpsum and select the Formula you just created. Fixed LUMPSUM amount: A fixed charge amount irrespective of any parameter like quantity, tax, weight.



FORMULA: A formula to calculate the charge such as Insurance Cost * Constant. The basic components of the formula can be a PRICING ATTRIBUTE and NUMERIC CONSTANT to return a numeric value. The user can attach the formula to the Freight Charge modifier.

For fixed freight cost for an order, no need to create LIST qualifier, just put that fixed cost in value column instead of Formula column.

Now you can set up list level qualifiers which will apply to this modifier list. Click the List Qualifiers button on the list header and enter some qualifiers similar to the ones in this table:

These qualifiers will make sure that these charges will be applied to Order Lines only when shipping occurs. (Shipped Flag = Yes). You can add any other qualifiers that make sense to your business such as limiting these freight charges to certain customers or orders with particular Freight Terms. Apart from these list level qualifiers, you will need to create a line level qualifier for each modifier line in your list. This qualifier will link the Freight Cost Type entered at Ship Confirm to this Charge.

Select the modifier line with Charge Name = Freight Cost. Click the Line Qualifiers button then enter: Grouping Number = 1, Qualifier Context = Order, Qualifier Attribute = Freight Cost Type Code, Precedence = accept default, Value From = Freight. With the Formula and this Modifier created, you can now convert Shipping Cost into a Freight Charge.

Select Order or Line Level to indicate whether you want the modifier to be applied at the order or line level. For this example, select Order. The Modifier Type of Freight/Special Charges is selected by default. Optionally, enter a Start and End Date. Select Automatic to apply the charges without user intervention. Select the Override box to allow authorized users to change the amount of the charge once it's applied. Select a Pricing Phase that controls when the charge will be applied. Select Header Level Charges for Order Level modifiers and Line Charges for Line Level modifiers.

In the Discounts/Charges tab, enter the charge details. Select Freight Costs from the Charge Name field. Select Include on Returns to copy this charge to returns created from these orders. Select Lumpsum as the Application Method and enter a value of $39.99. Similarly, enter another modifier line for the Handling Charge. Enter a second line within the Modifiers Summary tab region with settings similar to those for the first line. In the Discounts/Charges tab, select Handling Costs as the Charge Name. Select (or clear) Include on Returns. Select Lumpsum as Application Method again is Lumpsum and the Value is $10.00.
