Price Adjustment using WooCommerce FedEx Shipping Plugin

In other words, store owners can either add the integer value or a percentage value by which they want the shipping rates to increase or decrease.

One of the major difference while adjusting the shipping rates to decrease the shipping cost is that you need to enter the amount with a minus ‘-‘ sign. For example, if you want to provide a 50% discount to the customers, you need to enter the value in the plugin settings as -50.
