Cover the Shipping Expense for Precious Products by providing the Shipping Cost based on the Price using WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro

According to Max, a WooCommerce store owner,”…We sell expensive products throughout the US. The issue with these products is their shipping. We pack a lot of padding for the safety of the products as well as we use reinforced shipping boxes. This makes a huge difference in the shipping cost which we charge the customers and which we pay for shipping the products. Is there any way to accommodate the difference in the shipping rates based on the price of the product..? I want the customers to pay the shipping as 20% of the price of the products once the price reaches above $12000. Thanks in advance.
