### Combined shipping discount

I have my shipping set up based on a per item rate of £2.00. I would like to make it so that any additional items ordered incur only an additional £1.00 shipping charge each. How can I set this up.

at what quantity would £1.00 per item shipping kick in at?

lets say for example that you want to charge £2.00 per item up to 10 items, then £1.00 per item for each item after that.

you would need to create 2 shipping charges,
1) 10 or less:
triggers:
Subtotal For Any Column

If the subtotal of Column 'Quantity' is '<=' a value of '10'

Calculation:
Based on multiple of Column Subtotal

subtotal of column 'Quantity' 'times' '2' 'plus' '0'

2) More than 10:
triggers:
Subtotal For Any Column

If the subtotal of Column 'Quantity' is '>' a value of '10'

Calculation:
Based on multiple of Column Subtotal

Subtotal of column 'Quantity' 'times' '1' 'plus' '10'

Ah, thanks Jason. That sounds understandable.

I think I can definitely work with that.

you're welcome.

Excellent instructions. Got it working first time.

I don't suppose you could provide some further advice on how I can now make a similar shipping rule but for different zones?

For example.
£2.50 for Europe
etc...

I would like to have the shipping calculated within my cart after the user selects their zone from a list/menu.

I would presume the calculations would be similar to the method you instructed above, but I am unsure from there. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

when the checkout page posts to the confirm page, the shipping country is stored in a session variable named "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country".

You could add to the triggers for the shipping charge:

AND
Based on session variables value:
if the session variable 'eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country' has a value of 'US'

OR
Based on session variables value:
if the session variable 'eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country' has a value of 'CA'

Ok, based on your instructions, I would guess that it would be better to remove the shipping price from the cart and add it instead to the confirm page based on the entered value on the checkout page.

I will give it a try. Sounds promising, thanks. :)

you're welcome.
