### shipping calculations

I'm having trouble with setting some shipping calculcations.

What I need to do is apply a flat rate shipping and handling charge when a certain item number is selected to add to the shopping cart and also if the quantity of that item goes over a certain amount then I need to increase the shipping charge.

I've add two line items in the shipping page of the cart and it works for the items that I need them to. The problem is that now it applies the basic flat rate to all items.

I used the shipping rule for one item to be "Number of items with a specific column value", If the total number of items where ID has a value of 11 is <= a value of 3. It then calculates a flat rate of plus 2.00.

The second rule is "Number of items with a specific column value", If the total number of items where ID has a value of 11 is >= a value of 4. It then calculates a flat rate of plus 5.00.

How do I get the shipping calculated properly for one item with a specific ID number?

There is a better condition you can use for the first part of the trigger, in the list you will find the option 'Presence of an item in the cart', then just specify the id number for the item and and 'exists'. Next you will need to use the 'Quantity of a specific item in the cart', then you just specify the id of the item and it's greater than equal to value for the quantity.

This should be followed by the flat rate calculation and just enter the dollar amount for the shipping charge.
