Shipping Options

Hello,

I have a client who has two different products (digital/downloads and physical products). The physical product are with two prices $15.00 and $19.95. The two downloads/coaching session (no shipping) are two prices as well downloads - $12.00, coaching session $125.00.

I got it to work fine setting rules based on the price, but now my client wants me to ship up 1-4 physical products for $11.50, 4-8 physical products for $23.00. I go it to work half way but is always charging shipping on $125.00 coaching session.

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

in the eCart object, create a new column named shippable.

In the add to cart button behavior, for shippable items set this column to 1 for digital items, set it to 0


in your shipping rules use the trigger,
Based on Items with a specific value:

If the total number of items where 'shippable has a value of '1' is '>' a value of '0'

and:

If the total number of items where 'shippable has a value of '1' is '<=' a value of '4'

Flat rate charge of 11.50


then create another rule for 4 - 8 items using the same trigger, just changing the comparison values.

Hi Jasen,

Thank you very much.

You have said "In the add to cart button behavior, for shippable items set this column to 1 for digital items, set it to 0" but how do I differentiate between chargeable and no-chargeable items if the behavior is set to charge.

Do I have to do anything to the database or do I have to do another behavior?

Appreciate your help.

the rule settings I gave you will only apply shipping the to the items where the shippable column has a value of 1.

that is point of having the shippable column.

it will not take into account items where the shippable column is set to 0.

I do appreciate your help and it is working fine. I am totally confused now, how to go about the items that have no shipping.

Any ideas and suggestions? You can take a look what I have done so far.

Thank you in advance.

I dont understand what you are asking, what do you want to do with items that do not have any shipping?

what exactly do you mean by:
"how to go about the items that have no shipping"

Please give a detailed explanation of what you are trying to accomplish

Hi Jason,

I don't have a table for shipping where I can specify value 1 and 0. This is why i am asking because now the cart is charging shipping to all items with and without shipping. This is what i am asking how should I go about it.

I go it working based on prices but now my client is asking for multiple file to be combined into 11.50 shipping charge.

If you check the first attached file this is the one I am referring to. The second attached file is with you suggestion.

Thank you

if your add to cart buttons are static (not using a database) you need to set the column value to 1 or 0 in the add to cart buttons, same way you are setting item name item price, directly in the add to cart button bindings.

AddtoCart Buttons are using the dataBase to draw info from it. Do I have go back into the dataBase and insert table for the shipping and point shipping, into the binding of the button, to this into the dataBase?
