Handling Fees

I have 3 categories of products that I need to charge different handling fees to.

Small $4, Medium $7, Large $10

How do I add this and have it show up and calculate into the pricing?

Do I have to do this is eCart 5? If so, what is the best and easiest way to do it?

Yes, this needs to be done in eCart.

first, you need to edit the cart object, add a new column for productCategory.

In another thread, you are working on limiting the quantity by category, you have created a recordset to return the product category, in the add to cart button, bind the new productCategory column to the category name from that recordset.

now create a new shipping rule for each category:

triggers:
number of items with a specific column value:
If the number of items where 'productCategory' has a value of 'Small' is '>' a value of '0'


calculation:
Based on items with a specific value:
total of 'Quantity' where 'productCategory has a value of 'Small' 'times' '4'

create the rules for large and medium as well.

eCart Rules

What is the difference between the CHARGES field and the SHIPPING RULES? Which one should I use?

I want to charge a flat fee for the 3 categories. If I add 3 shipping rules, are these automatically executed on checkout? Can I combine the 3 shipping rules into 1 rule using the IF statements?

IF productcategory = "Small Canvases"

OR

IF productcategory = "Medium Canvases"

OR

IF productcategory = "Large Canvases"

the difference is only how they show in the cart.

there is a charges section, a discounts section, a tax section and a shipping section.


Shipping rules will display in the shipping section, charges in the charges section.

If you want these to show in the charges section, you can create them as charges.

No, you can combine them in one rule since you want to charge a different amount for each category.

I'm going to create these as shipping rules but how would I show them as separate items (shipping and handling)?

Shipping:
Handling:

eCart doesn't have a separate handling group, only shipping. you will not be able to separate the handling charge out this way.
