I am working on a new site at the moment which only allows Fed Ex, etc to handle deliveries.
Now say the flat shipping cost is $10 for the service, plus $10 per kilo, with a minimum charge of 1 kilo.
So someone buys 1 item which weighs 1kg or less, they will be charged $20 shipping.
Some of the products weigh say 1.5kg, so you would assume the total shipping cost to be $25.
Say they buy 2 items that each weigh 1.5 kg, it should cost them $40 dollars for the whole 3kg package.
All the products have been given weight values in 1/2 kg increments.
I have tried to enter in the Weight dependences fields the following:
More than 0kgs; rate value: $10; absolute $
More than 0 kgs; rate value: $10; absolute $; checkbox per Kgs
I keep getting bizarre shipping totals. I have made sure that the base weight is kgs, and there are 1000 units to 1 kg.
I have tried even to make the 2nd field as this:
More than 0.001 kgs; rate value: $10; absolute $; checkbox per Kgs
(just incase having 2 ‘more than 0kgs’ fields confuses the code) - no joy.
I want to do this so that i do not have to enter a specific value for every 1/2 kg increment upto 50kg for 4 different shipping regions.
Any one know of a solution?
I hope i haven’t confused the hell out of you guys, and will be away over the next few days, so I can’t clarify. Would be interested if anyone knows a solution, workaround, or even if you have come across the same problem…
many thanks to all
Try the following:
More than $0 - $10 Absolute
More than 0 lbs - $10 Absolute Per Lbs
