If you need visual guidance setting up the basics you can watch our video below, if you already watched this please read on below for more advanced shipping classes settings.

I’ve used 3 different products, small, medium & large, and have set up different shipping to my own country, Europe and the rest of the world. You can use this example to set up your own shipping, and can easily add more shipping areas or classes.
