shipping

Hi

my client wants shipping charged by cost

Any order under £200 ischarged at £10 and any order over would be charged at £0.00

Is there an easy way to do this?

I thought of using the purchase price as a weight so that the total cost would govern any carriage charge

Possible or not?

thanks

Ian

on the shipping tab, create a new shipping rule.

set the trigger to:

"Subtotal For Entire Cart Contents"
If the Subtotal price for the cart is ">" a value of "0"

AND
"Subtotal For Entire Cart Contents"
If the Subtotal price for the cart is "<=" a value of "200"



and the charge to:
Flat rate charge of "10"

Clearly a Marvin moment,

Been to admin and selected the shipping options, I just can't see how to type in your code,

I use the + icon to add a rule but once there I cant seem to edit them

so that they match your code

I'm using PS4.5

thanks

i'm sorry, I misread your question, I thought this was for eCat, not power store.

power store does not have a way to create price based shipping, it can only work on weight.


you could set the weight to be the same as the brice, then create the shipping rule in the admin section using max weight 200.

this will apply the shipping if the weight is less than 200.

Total abject failure

Hi Jason

sorry to be a pain but I seem to be failing in my endevour. I am using my WAMP server because I,m rather loath to play with the live server.

My aim is still any order under £200 IN Total will be £10 carriage and anything above free so following you reply |I did the following:

Ive added a product ( to the setup on my test server)

I've left shipping and handling charges blank


I've left the check box marked "exclude from all shiping rules" un checked

and I've set the weight to be 25 ie using the cost as a weight- so one will be chargable but 5 will be free carriage


I went into admin---Shipping settings and set weight unit to pounds

Tick the box enable shipping

I deleted all existing rules

pressed "add shipping rule"

in the max weight types 200

and in the rate typed 10

I then pressed ADD

<=200lb £10.0 appears in the window

The Basic rate and per rate boxes are both set at zero

I press OK and return to the Shipping settings screen.

I have one rule showing which should say thet any order under 200 is charged at £10

However when I edit the rule ( clicking the edit icon) no rule is shown.

Basic rate is set to 0
peritem rate is set to 0
provider is set to custom
and below that is a grey box with just Max weight and rate in the window.

Image 1 is is on opening the screen

Image 2 is before presing ok

Image 3 is after pressing ok and then selecting the edit button

Any ideas should I| try it on the live server?

thanks

Hi Jason

I think I havefound a bug or solved the issue.

If I go to my live server then the shipping discount is saved and can bereloadedand edited however on my local test server it is not.

Possibly a permissions issue???

My test server is the 64bit version of wamp on a windows 7 64 bit machine.

I cant test the remote fully as I'm waiting for fasthosts to setup https on the domain.

I'll let you know how I get on

regards

Ian
