The eStore Bulk Quantity Shipping addon allows the shopping cart to automatically apply a shipping amount based on the number of items a user is purchasing.
You can pre-configure how much shipping to apply for which item quantity range.
How Does the Bulk 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 user adds 7-9 items to the shopping cart, a $20 shipping will be automatically applied to the cart.

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

To add a new condition you need to enter the following information:
- From (Quantity): The minimum number of items required to apply this shipping amount. For example: 7

Marking a Product to be a Physical Item
The bulk quantity shipping addon can override and apply the bulk shipping amount to the cart, if the product in question is a physical item. The way to mark a product to be a physical item is to add a shipping amount of 0.01 to the shipping cost of the item. So edit the WP eStore product in question and enter a value of 0.01 to the Item Shipping Cost field.
