Quantity based shipping on a unique product basis

Quantity based shipping on a unique product basis


I need to base shipping on quantity, but have that tier be unique to each product.

So product 1 costs $3 from 1-3, $6 from 4-6, etc

But product 2 costs $8 from 1-3, $12 from 4-6, etc

So I want the cart to total the shipping based on the quantity/price based on the products settings for quantity pricing.

That would be ideal in my situation. can this be implemented?

you would need a column in the cart object for the shipping rate for each break point, for the example you gave, you would need breakPoint1 and breakPoint2

in the add to cart button for product1, set the breakPoint1 to 3 and breakPoint2 to 6.

for product2, set the breakPoint1 to 8 and breakPoint2 to 12

on the calculation tab, create a new calculation as:
(abs([Quantity] => 1 && [Quantity] <= 3)?[breakPoint1]:0) + (abs([Quantity] => 4 && [Quantity] <= 6)?[breakPoint2]:0)

then in the shipping tab create a shipping rule, use the trigger:
"Subtotal for any column"
if the subtotal of column "shippingRate" is ">" a value of "0"

"Based on multiple of column subtotal"
subtotal of column "shippingRate" "times" "1" "Plus" "0"
