Shipping based on Cart Total

I hope someone can help me with this. I am not a programer so this is a bit over my head. I understand the basics for designing and was trying to find some documentation on the shipping for eCart. But here is what I am trying to accomplish for my shipping/Handling charges to my cart.

I want the shipping to be charged from a matrix for the total of the cart and have the shipping be determined on whether the shipping needs to be domestic or international.

The shipping matrix would look like this:

0.00 - 20.00 = $5.95
20.01 - 50.00 = $7.95
50.01 - 100.00 = $10.95
100.01 - 150.00 = $12.95
150.01 - 200.00 = $14.50
200.01 - 250.00 = $16.50
250.00 and up = 7.5% of cart total

0.00 - 50.00 = $12.00
50.01 - 100.00 = $15.00
100.01 - 150.00 = $18.00
150.01 - 200.00 = $20.00
200.01 - 250.00 = $24.00
250.00 and up = 10% of cart total

If anyone has any ideas I would be much appreciated.

It looks like you will need to break it out into a bunch of rules, or set up a database to store the values.

I'd probably set up a database personally and use a total of three shipping rules:

Shipping rule 1: Total shipping returned from database query (return 0 if over $250)
Shipping rule 2: Domestic large order 7.5% if domestic session variable set and order total over $250
Shipping rule 3: International large order 10% if international session variable set and order total over $250

in your database table you would have shipping rates with columns like

ShippingID ShippingMaxWeight ShippingAmount ShippingZone

Shipping Zone would identify international or domestic and ShippingID is an auto-increment key field.
