Using this Addon
When this addon is active, You can easily configure some conditions that will be used to automatically apply the shipping amount to the shopping cart.

To add a new condition you need to enter the following information:
- From (Amount): The minimum price amount required to apply this shipping amount. For example: 5.00
- To (Amount): The maximum price amount required in the shopping cart to apply this shipping amount. For example: 7.00

You can add as many conditions as you want.
How Does the Amount Based Shipping Condition Work
Lets say, you configured one shipping condition and a user just came to your site to do a shopping cart checkout. If the total price amount (of physical products) in the shopping cart is between $5.00 and $7.00, a $1.50 shipping will be automatically applied to the cart.
In order for a product to be eligible for amount based shipping,
a) Digital Product URL field needs to be empty
b) Downloadable option needs to be disabled
Otherwise the addon will consider it as a digital item and no shipping will apply.
