Getting Started...

I have finally got ecart 5 and xampp set up. I have converted all of my page extensions to.php, originally from .html. I would like to integrate ups into my cart. I have downloaded the rating api from ups and set all of that up in the ecart program. I am stuck now. I do not know what to do with all of the stuff I downloaded from ups. I am not sure if there is anything else I need to do before I begin adding add to cart buttons to my site. Alot of the products I sell have several price breaks, typically three or four different pricing tiers. Is there anything else that needs to be done before I begin. Should I set up the ups stuff that I downloaded from them or can that be adjusted later. How do I work in discounts into the cart. Please advise on how I should proceed. I am new to all of this so any information would be very helpful and appriciated.

Thank you.

Shipping Help...

Is it possible to set up different shipping options for each product. For example, if some one orders 100 little nozzles that weigh 1 pound can I set up a formula or something to calculate the shipping at $8 or $10. But if someone orders 3 big 100 pound pumps how do I set up a different formula for that shipping being more like $200 or $300. Any helpful bits of information or links would be appreciated.

Thank you

the calculations you need for shipping (or discounts) are very versatile and can be based on a large number of criteria.

you can set fixed price options, base the price on weight, value, shipping destination...

the best approach is to decide on what you want to do, and then ask a specific question

Quantity Discounts

For example,

1-5 nozzles - $2.49
6-11 nozzles - $2.09
12-99 nozzles - $1.49
100-499 - $1.20
500+ Please call

How would I go about setting this up in the shopping cart.

Thank you

create a rul on the shipping tab far each quatity break, for example, the first rule woulld be:

Triggers:
Subtotal for any column:
If the subtotal of Column [Quantity] is [>] a value of [0]


AND
Subtotal for any column:
If the subtotal of Column [Quantity] is [<=] a value of [5]


Calculation:
Flat rate of 2.49


to display the please call error, you would need to add code to the page:

php:
<?php if($<your cart name>->TotalColumn("Quantity") >= 500) echo("Please call"); ?>




where <your cart name> is the name of your ecart object.

More Questions

If this is the rule to use for quantity discounts on the products themselves, then why would the rule be created under the shipping tab? I just wanted to clarify before I begin my adventure with the ecart. Thank you

Sorry, that was a typo, the rules should be created under the discounts tab.
