Step 9. Now we can try a test checkout of a product with Weight 15 KG and view the shipping cost

As you can see the shipping method shows Express: $60 and Normal Post : $30

Step 10. Say your customer is checking out with "Express" and the shipping calculation is: Base price = $30 as per shipmethods table.

Total weight(15) – Minimum Weight(10)=Extra Weight(5)

Extra Weight(5) * Extra Cost($6)=Extra Cost($30)

Total Shipping Cost($60) = Base Price($30) + ExtraCost($30)

You could see the shipping cost: $60 while completing the checkout with express post.
