Shipping costs-need help

Hi there. I'm not a coder at all, and I'm having trouble setting up my shipping costs, I hope you can help me.
The url for the website that has the shop is www.cakequeen.ie

There are only 4 items for sale.

I have created a weight binding for each of the 4 items, 2500g for cakes and 100g for crumbles.
The shipping is all based on weight, and I need to put shipping rules/calculations in based on the following chart Standard+Post.htm
Can you please help me with this, I'm pulling out my hair!

Thanks,
Ken

There seems to be quite a few shipping options listed in all of these tables. To make a rule for each combination would take a while and require a bit of effort to ensure that it has all been setup correctly and test it out.

Are you wanting to provide every single option that is listed in the tables on that page? It seems that most of the options are based on the packaging that you are using. Is there a single package that you would like to use for this or perhaps just a couple?

Hi Eric, can you help with this?

I should have been more specific: This is the chart to use: Standard+Post.htm and it's the "Zone 1 - Ireland & NI" and only the "Parcel" Column I am concerned with.
Basically I want something like this, but can't get it to work myself:

Totalweight of cart <= 1kg the cost should be &#8364;6.50
Totalweight of cart <= 2kg the cost should be &#8364;7.50
Totalweight of cart <= 2.5kg the cost should be &#8364;8.70
Totalweight of cart <= 3kg the cost should be &#8364;9.80
Totalweight of cart <= 3.5kg the cost should be &#8364;11
Totalweight of cart <= 4kg the cost should be &#8364;12
and for every kilo after that, it's an extra &#8364;1

Ok, thanks for clarifying. This is a much more manageable set of charges to work with. They seem pretty similar to one another so the process will be almost the same for creating all of these.

You will need to start on the shipping tab in the eCart object. From here you will add the first shipping charge rule:

Totalweight of cart <= 1kg the cost should be €6.50

You will give this charge rule a name, like up to 1kg, then you will add the first trigger. It will be set to 'subtotal for any column' then select the TotalWeight column and then you will select less than equal to (<=) and finally just enter the weight of 1.

For the calculation portion you will just add in a flat rate of 6.50.

The other rules will all be very similar except you will need to account for the lower weight with another trigger in the condition. For the second charge you would want to add a condition that says 'subtotal for any column, TotalWeight, >, 1'. This will ensure that the items that are less than 1kg are not charged for the 1kg and 2kg charges. So each rule afte the first one would also need to account for the column being greater than the last weight charge.

For the final part you will just need to add another charge based on the total weight being greater than 4kg, and if so you would multiply the total weight by 1 then minus 4.
