OpenCart doesn’t support a shipping method that allows for multiple flat rates as per total by default, for that we create an Opencart extension and provided it for free where you can set multiple flat rates shipping prices as per the sub-total price of the cart.

How to set the shipping rates as per total in Opencart?
In the above example we set the rates like “400:5,300:10,200:20,100:30,0:0“, it means, the shipping cost is $30 when the sub-total of the cart is between 0 to 100, and 20 shipping cose when sub-total is between 100 to 200 and like wise.
If you want to offer free shipping after some amount let say after 400, then you can install and activate the free shipping module and enter the total amount as 400.
