Here are my basic shipping needs.
1: Base rate for shipping up to 1 lb. (easy, and setup)
2: Base rate for each additional lb (easy, and setup)
3: What I need to do now is setup rules based on the province they are being shipped to. Is there an easy way to add a Multiplier to the "$totalShipping" that get's created.
Base Rate "$totalShipping" = $10
Manitoba has a multiplier of 1, so the value is still $10
Alberta has a multiplier of 1.4, so the value is $14.00
The way it is now, I know I can add a multiplier in the calculation to the "total weight" - therefore adding a per lb sur charge to each province, but this calculation will not sit well with my client, and it is not nearly as easy to calculate. (It would be great if the $totalShipping variable was stored in one of eCarts calculations, so we could calculate it from within the shipping calculations area. Better yet - add "canada post" as a shipping provider for real time quotes - LOL)
Any suggestions? Or is the above paragraph my only solution?
