### Shipping Charge

How do I set up my shipping charges? I want to charge say \$1.50 x weight.

Thanks.

in the eCart object, create a new shipping rule on the shipping tab.

set the trigger to:
"subtotal for any cart column"
if the subtotal for column 'TotalWeight' is '>' a value of '0'

Calculation:
"Based on multiple of column subtotal"
Subtotal of column 'TotalWeight' 'times' '1.50' 'plus' '0'

If I wanted to make that shipping rule discounted if the qty is > 1, how would I do that?

on the discounts tab, set the following rule:

triggers:
"subtotal for any column" - if the subtotal of column 'quantity' is '>' a value of '1'

calculation:
Flate rate discount of '\$this->GetShipping()'

I can't enter anything in the Calculation field. It only lets me choose from a drop down list.

make sure you are using the Flat Rate calculation type.

## 8/15/2011 12:35 pm  |  #9 rob294118

I typed this in the Flat Rate Calculation field: '\$this->GetShipping()'

Now it only charges the shipping for 1 item. The second items shipping charges are not calculated.

I basically just want to offer a \$3 discount for each item over a qty of 1.

you said before that you wanted to discount the entire shipping if quantity was greater than 1.

to discount \$3 for each item over a qty of 1, use the same trigger:
"subtotal for any column" - if the subtotal of column 'quantity' is '>' a value of '1'

for the calculation use:
"Based on multiple of column subtotal"
subtotal of column 'quantity' times '3' 'minus' '3'
