Assigning Shipping Costs To A Category Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 18 January 2019 - 12:19 PM #1

Hello everyone!

 

I am setting up a new store and was wondering if it is possible to assign a shipping cost to an entire category of products.

 

The idea being if a customer orders 1 product from that category, £5 is added to the shipping cost.

 

Likewise, if they order 5 different products from that category it still only adds £5 to the shipping cost.

 

Is this possible by default or would it require an addon?

 

I am pretty new to CS-Cart and would appreciate any help.

 

Thank you!

No, you can assign only different commission in %%. This is done by a special addon - Vendor plans: Commissions by category

Also you can add shipping freight to certain products 

Shipping freight—the handling fee (insurance, packaging, etc.) added to the shipping cost.

Having had a play around I think I have managed to achieve what I wanted using the supplier's addon.

 

I have assigned the products in the category I wanted to a created supplier and created a shipping method just for that supplier at £5.50 flat rate. 

 

Now when any volume of any product from that supplier is added to the cart, it adds the £5.50 on top of the standard shipping for any other products.

 

Thanks for the replies, everyone.
