Still a bit confused.
My assumptions are:
1. I would create a column in the db, "ItemType" and each and every product in my db would carry this definition.
2. I would assign values to the types i.e. regular=1, fineart=2, dropship=3, wonpad=0 etc.
So in the case of WonPad the rule in the first attachment would apply.
If so, does the calculation as illustrated mean that 1 item type=0 would incur $15.50 shipping and 2 would incur $31.00 shipping etc.?
The second attachment would define shipping cost for standard items with a total cost of $50.00 or less.
If true does this also mean that 1 item type=1 @ $45.00 and 1 item type=0 would incur a shipping cost of $15.50+$6.95?
Right so far or do I have it all completely wrong?
