Help With Origin Shipping Rate Calculation

Help With Origin Shipping Rate Calculation

I need to setup a rule that is based on subtotal of cart and country of origin.

How would I go about setting up a custom expression that says for example, For Domestic orders shipped within U.S., for orders that are $.01 to $40.00 (cart subtotal) = $3.00 shipping and is United States use this formula? How would I write that?

Because below I have to make a distinction that excludes the United States for international rates that would be if order is .01 to $40.00 = $12.00 and NOT United States?

How would I go about creating a custom shipping method for this, would this come in to play on the page where the customer enters their information on country and cc info?

Please help me as Im very lost.

shopping-cart.php

Here are the rules.

For Domestic: If the purchase is:

$.01 to $40.00 = $3.00 shipping

40.01 - 80.00 = 5.00 shipping

80.01 - and up = 7.00 shipping




Can you set the price for International shipping.

.01 to $40.00 = $12.00

40.01 to 80.00 = $15.00

80.01 to and up = $17.00

when the checkout form posts to the confirm page, the shipping country is stored in a session variable named:
eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country


you would need to create separate shipping rules for each price break, for domestic and international.


the rules will set the price breaks by using the Based on taxable total trigger, but then add another trigger for session Variable is set "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" and Based on Session Variable value.

for the domestic shipping rules use:
session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "US"

for the international rules use:
session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "!=" a value of "US"

Thanks for your guidance

yes, that is correct for the triggers.

in the calculation section, use a flat rate calculation of 3.00
