Example Shipping Charges for Online Orders

Please note: these examples below relate to orders taken through the "legacy" online shop, with the blue header (its URL starts https://legacy.esperanto.org.uk/).
Orders taken through the "new(er)" online shop, with the green header might have different postage calcuations applied (URL starts https://esperanto.org.uk/store/ )

Example 1

An order, for delivery to the UK, is:

ProductQuantityPriceAmount 
EAB Membership [Shipping included]1£25.00£25.00
Dictionary1£10.50£10.50
Novel1£6.30£6.30
Postcard3£0.45£1.35

The price of "EAB Membership" includes shipping, so that item (£25.00) is excluded from the shipping charge calculation.

The value of the order on which shipping is due is £10.50 + £6.30 + £1.35 = £18.15.
The (UK) shipping charge on £18.15 is 18.15 * 20% = £3.63.
(In fact, the shopping cart rounds the total down to the nearest 10p, i.e. £18.10, before calculating a shipping charge of 18.10 * 20% = £3.62.)

Example 2

An order, for delivery to Rest-of-World (i.e. not the UK), is:

ProductQuantityPriceAmount 
Badge1£1.25£1.25
Postcard2£0.45£0.90

The value of the order on which shipping is due is £1.25 + £0.90 = £2.15.

The (Rest-of-World) shipping charge on £2.15 is 2.15 * 30% = £0.65.
(In fact, the shopping cart rounds the total down to the nearest 10p, i.e. £2.10, before calculating a shipping charge of 2.10 * 30% = £0.63.)
but since this is below the minimum (Rest-of-World) shipping charge, the minimum shipping charge £3.10 applies.
