When this box is checked, the rate you enter will be displayed to your customers as an "estimate" with an asterisk "*". This is useful if you want to determine the real shipping charges at time of shipping.
You can offer free shipping by using the Order Subtotal setting or # of items. First setup the condition that will result in a 0.00 (zero) shipping charge. Then, check "Use Alternate Text" box and specify what text should be displayed in place of 0 zero, ex. "Free"
This amount will be added to the rate after it is calculated.
