Shipping Calculation

Shipping Calculation

I need a little help with some shipping calculations.

First issue...when I try to create a new shipping rule with a flat rate cost it doesnt save the value. Bascially I enter Total Number of Items == 1 with a Flat Rate calculation of $3. When I click OK and then go back and edit it the flat rate is back to $0.

Second issue...There doesnt seem to be an option to create a shipping rule for TotalItems in my Cart. My pricing structure works like so:

1 item = £3
2 items = £4.50
3+ items = £5

The only option I can find is for total unique items which wont do what I need. I tried adding a new calculation called TotalShipping which is = [Quantity]. I could then use the 'Number of items with specific column value' but I cant figure out how to use it.

I am using PayPal standard payments with no dedicated shipping provider.

Any help would be appreciated.

1) Try changing focus to another field before clicking OK... or even click on the help button first.

2) Try "subtotal of column value" and use the quantity column

Thanks, the focus seems to do the trick, shame I hadnt noticed that before. I found a work around for the meantime by manually editting the eCart file.

I also tried the subtotal of column and it seems to work perfectly, thanks.
