Why are there so many shipping charges in the shopping cart?

There are two places where you can specify shipping and handling charges. First is the Shipping option in the menu under Checkout Counter. This is typically used to define standard shipping charges that are options for all products in the catalog.

However, you can also specify special shipping and handling charges on a per product basis, by selecting the Shipping option in the Item Editor. This is helpful if a certain product has a special handling charge that other products don’t have. Or, if shipping is free for all items except that one certain item.
