Add item without increasing quantity

Add item without increasing quantity

My client's shipping is tied to overall quantity - for 1 to 4 items, it's $8 and change, for 5 to 6, it $9+, and so on. However, she has 3 products (gift boxes) for which she includes shipping. If people order regular items and gift boxes, she wants to charge shipping for the number of regular items, but leave the gift boxes out. In other words, gift boxes should not increase the quantity.

I've got the rules down pat for the first part, but don't know how to tackle the gift box no-charge shipping. Any ideas on how to approach this?

TIA - Joe

you will need to redo the logic for your shipping rules to accomplish this.

also, you will need to add a new column to the cart object. for the sake of example, call the column "shippable" In the add to cart behavior for items that shipping applies to, set the value of the shippable column to 1. for items not included in the shipping, set the value to 0.

In the shipping rules, use the trigger:
"Number of items with a specific column value"

Can you clarify what you mean by "you will need to redo the logic for your shipping rules to accomplish this."?

Thanks - Joe

right now your shipping rules are using the trigger SubTotal for any column, and using the quantity column.

instead of using the subtotal for any column trigger, you need to use the Number of items with a specific column value trigger
