Shipping rules for packets parcels

Shipping rules for packets parcels

Hi Guys, Some products need to be shipping in a box as a parcel. These need different shipping rules to Packets. Is it a case of adding a field to the products labeling them as packets or parcel size and then editing my rules to check which one is right?

This is as far as I have gotten. What if a parcel and packet item are in the cart? I normally work out shipping by weight using the Irish postal service rates. Just not sure how to handle the Packet v Parcel scenario. Any help appreciated.

For info, the Irish postal system will charge by weight until the item is too big for a packet and need to go in a box. Then they charge by size of the box.

Thanks

Jon

Yes you could create a new column for package type.

In the shipping rules, use Based on Items with a specific value in the shipping rule to check for parcel or box.

Thanks Jason, to handle parcels and packets in the same cart session, would you add the shipping to each individual item rather than combined weight which is what I am used to doing?

yes, to have different shipping methods, it would best to do the shipping on an item basis rather than combined total.
