I've read some of the threads regarding the lack of proper dimensional shipping in CSC, which is part of the problem.
The biggest problem is this...
I have certain products that need flat rate shipping. So a winch, which is 75 lbs, sells for $500 and needs to ship flat rate... $50 for example.
I have some products that must have a live shipping solution, FedEx Ground typically, a winch mount bumper for example that weighs 85 lbs and has a cost of $550.
The first is because the products total 160lbs FedEx won't show Ground Home Delivery because their limit is 150lbs...even though they ship separately, sometimes from me, sometimes from a drop ship. That's a dimensional issue I think, or at least in part.
Sometimes a customer orders both at once, so now he has flat rate and a live rate items in the cart. CSC returns a shipping solution with:
Sorry, it seems that we have no shipping options available for your location.
Please check your shipping address and contact us if everything is okay. We'll see what we can do about it.
What I need is an addon that enables product by product shipping as it seems CSC won't do that. I've run CSC for many years so I'm pretty familiar with it and don't see a solution for this problem. I have Hungryweb's Shipping/Payment Restriction addon which he kindly updated for 4.8.x and it does what it is supposed to and whether I have it running or not, selected restrcitions or not, this is obviously an issue related to the core CSC shipping logic.
So, what I would like to see is the cart with the winch listed with the flat rate shipping, then the next line shows the live rate methods and so on...the neatly totals it all up and let's him checkout out.. sale complete.
What am I missing? Is there no solution to this?
