Custom Shipping Rule - For A Single Product That Ships Separately

Custom Shipping Rule - For A Single Product That Ships Separately

Hi guys,

Same old chestnut, custom shipping. I've followed other threads and in DW edited the ecart object with a custom shipping rule which is adding the correct amount but the amount is not explained in the cart so the customer will just think the total is wrong. What I am trying to do is this:-

Some of our products are shipped direct from the webstore to the client some are drop shipped directly from the distributor of the product (one product range at the moment). For this product then I need to sense it in the cart and add either £8.60 drop ship for any quantity up to 20 KG of that product and another amount for orders over 20 KG. If this product is the only product in the cart then the other shipping options need to disappear as the £8.60 covers it. If it's an international order then I need to add the £8.60 (or greater depending on volume) to get the product drop shipped to the webstore depot then add shipping for the whole international order as usual.

So Far I've added a shipping rule to the ecart object and uploaded the files. The rule detects "if presence of item 48 exists in the cart -> calculation -> based on the quantity of an item <= 44 plus £8.60"

Can you help? Really struggling with this one.
