Possible to apply postage rules after discount rules have been applied?

Possible to apply postage rules after discount rules have been applied?

We have free postage on orders over £60, and people have been ordering over £60 of products however they are then applying a discount code which drops the order below £60.

Is there a way to only apply the discount codes to the order itself and not the postage charge?

Hope that makes sense!
Thank you

How do you have the trigger for the shipping rule set up?

If you use the trigger:
Cart Subtotal < 60, this will trigger the shipping on the subtotal of the cart which is calculated before taxes, discounts and charges.

If you set the shipping trigger to use:
Taxable Total < 60

this uses the total after Discounts, Taxes and Charges are added.

<groan>...there are 18 different shipping rules and they use, amongst other things, "SubTotal of items < 60".
Is it just that bit that I need to change in each rule? Other conditions include weight, session variables (for type of shipping chosen) and total number of items in cart.

Thank you.

I think I am missing what the problem is.

Can you give some more details on what the actual problem is please?

If you add 10 of these to the basket (£6.00 each):

...and then apply the "STARTSAVE10" discount code, you will notice that the postage is still showing as free even though the total of the order is under £60.00.

Confused myself now!

EDIT: Should I just be changing "SubTotal of items < 60" to "GrandTotal of items < 60"?

Actually, it should be taxable Total for the cart.

the subtotal is the cart subtotal before the discounts. so when you apply the discount, this is not taken into account for the shipping trigger if using SubTotal < 60

sounds like you want the shipping to apply to Grand total of the cart after the discounts are calculated, so select Taxable total < 60

I have changed the rules to Taxable total however we, again, have some custom coding that was done in a Premiere Support session with Ray that relates to this. It basically shows the shipping cost in brackets next to a radio button to allow the user to select from 3 different types of shipping...

Here is an example of this...

<label for="ShippingType" class="sublabel">&nbsp;</label>
<input <?php if (!(strcmp($_SESSION['ShippingType'],"1"))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="radio" name="ShippingType" value="1" id="ShippingType" tabindex="23" checked>&nbsp;&nbsp;Standard Delivery (3-5 Days -
<?php
if(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") < "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") < "1000")) {
echo("£3.50");
}
elseif(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") < "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") >= "1000") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") < "2000")) {
echo("£3.50");
}
elseif(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") < "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") >= "2000")) {
echo("£3.50");
}
if(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") >= "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") < "1000")) {
echo("£0.00");
}
elseif(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") >= "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") >= "1000") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") < "2000")) {
echo("£0.00");
}
elseif(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") >= "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") >= "2000")) {
echo("£0.00");
}
?>
)

So we are doing a calculation:
if(($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice") < "60") && ($LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") < "1000")) {
echo("£3.50");

What do I need to change this to in order to reflect the change we've made to the shipping rules that now feature the Taxable Total?

Thank you.

change each instance of:
$LEDCart->TotalColumn("TotalPrice")

to:
$LEDCart->GetTaxableTotal()
