Shipping prices

Shipping prices

Has anyone figured a way to set the shipping so that you can charge a set price per item and not have to use the required shipping carries to charge shipping?

you would need to use eCart to remove the existing shipping rules and create a new one.

make sure the power store files are at the root of the dreamweaver site. Open the cart.php page and double the eCart Object server behavior in the server behaviors list to edit it.


On the shipping tab, remove the existing shipping rules. then add a new one. Set the trigger to Number of Unique Items in cart Greater than 0.

For the calculation, use Based on multiple of column subtotal:
Subtotal of Column "Quantity" Times "3" "plus" "0"

change the three to the amount per item you would like to charge.

Jason, i do have one question about the set up though. When you say set the price can that be setting the price per each individual unit or can I only set one price for the who store?

Thanks again

well, setting a per item shipping price is a little different.


you need to add a new cart column in the eCart object for shippingPrice, and add this column into the products database as well.

in the add to cart button server behavior, bind the shippingPrice cart column to the shipping price column in the products recordset.


on the calculation column of the eCart object, you need to create a new calculation called TotalShipping:
[shippingprice] * [Quantity]

The shipping rule you create on the shipping tab will still use the same trigger, but the calculation will be:
Based on Column Subtotal - Subtotal of "TotalShipping" "plus" "0"

So this meaning that the way the shipping will be caculated will be based of the additonal information I need to add to the system.

I have a few questions about this.

Firslty I have no idea how to 'Bind' the ShippingPrice Cart and Shipping Price Columns.
Secondly What is the best method/program to be editing Ecart?
Thridly,The caucalution you refer to to do I just input the information you have lised above : TotalShipping: [shippingprice] * [Quantity]

Thanks again for your help. I really want to go with PS3 and Ecart but if it gets to be to much I will have to look at other companies.

1)

yes

2) Dreamweaver is the only program that will allow you to install and edit eCart using our wizards... otherwise you would have to hand edit with any other editor like notepad.

3) Once you are in the dreamweaver calculations section it will be clear, but yes you will enter it just as you see:
TotalShipping = [shippingprice] * [Quantity]
