free shipping exclude products

free shipping exclude products

I have multiple types of dog food that I need to exclude from my free shipping rule, how do I go about doing that? I would think if I had to enter each item number for each type of food it would take forever to query. Please let me know how to proceed.

Thanks,
Tim

You could do this by adding an extra column to your cart to indicate if an item should have free shipping.

With the column added you will need to update the add to cart server behaviors to bind a value to this new column, you could set it to 0 for items that will not have free shipping and 1 for the others.

You will need a new shipping charge rule. In your new shipping charge rule in the calculation portion you would say 'based on items with a specific value', then choose 'total of total price where <your new column> has a value of 0'.

This way you would have a shipping charge rule that will only apply to items that you want to charge shipping on. The total price is just one of the columns you could base the shipping on, you could also choose to use the weight column to devise your shipping costs. Let us know how this will work for you.

This way the

shipping

Eric,

I've tried what you suggested and I may have done wrong but I can't get it to work. I have a rule setup in discounts so that if the subtotal of items >= 75 they get free shipping. The shipping rule I created from your suggestion was number of items with a specific column value, if the total number of items where free_ship has a value of 0 is = a value of 0 flat rate shipping of $this->GetShipping().

I created a column in the DB called free_ship so items that get free shipping are 0 and those that are not will have a value of 1. If you can tell me what rule I need to create for this or if I can create a rule that says if the total weight is greater that 30lbs you don't get free shipping else you get free shipping.

Thanks,
Tim

A flat rate shipping should be a flat rate amount, not the shipping value held in the cart.

Have you checked your cart to ensure that the items that should have free shipping have the proper value set for them?

What you have specified here should be working apply a flat rate shipping for the items. If you have any further trouble with this please post back with a copy of your WA_eCart folder.

As for the weight you can set it up in a similar fashion. You will check if the total weight < 30, if so then you will apply your flat rate shipping charge.

You do not need to worry about the inverse of these types of rules, if you are only crafting charge rules for the shipping then shipping will only be charged when it is triggered otherwise there will be no shipping charge.

free ship

Eric,

I've tried a different rules however I can't get it to work. I have this free shipping discount set up from the ecart docs and modified the rule if subtotal is >= 75 and added the line: and number of items with a specific column has a value of 0 is = a value of 0.

I'm attaching the copy of the WA_Ecart.

Thanks,
Tim

Currently you have two shipping charge rules setup. The first one is checking if the total is greater than or equal to 75. If so then you are setting the shipping to be the amount of the existing shipping charge in the cart. This does not make a lot of sense to me. I think you should use a flat rate for the value of the shipping and enter an amount.

The other shipping rule is the standard USPS rule. It looks like it is charging you based on the quote that is returned.

Please explain exactly how you would like to charge for and not charge for the shipping based on these two rules. I will help give you some pointers on getting it setup correctly.
