Shipping options and problems...

Shipping options and problems...

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to figure out a way to add 2 flat rate delivery options and finding it a little problematic. Basically I have over 100 products and all of them get a flat rate of £8 but I'd like to offer a cheeper option for 4 items at £3.50, the problem seems to be that 1 of the items of the 4 I'd like people to order up to 12 of them before the £8 kicks in the other 3 just 1. Any ideas?

Also, in eCart when going to edit the shipping options the rules get messed up, there correct in the code but in the editing box there garbled, anyone else having this problem?, it's not all the time though but enough to be a pain in the.. wrist as you have to keep entering the details from the beginning so it takes ages to do tests. Attached JPG shows the error, it should be a list of 5 different rules, not as it shows, just one garbled rule.

Any ideas?
Thanks for any thoughts!!!

Just to clarify,


For all but 4 items, you want to charge a flat rate shipping of 8

For 3 of the 4 items, you want to charge flat rate shipping of 3.50



so if they order 1 regular item and 1 of the other 3 items, they should be charged 11.50?

same as if they order 4 regular items and 2 of the other 3 items, they would still be charged 11.50?


For the forth item, you want to charge a flat rate of 8 only when 12 or more are ordered?

This is on top of the other flat rate charges? so 1 regular item, 1 of the other 3 itmes and 12 of the 4th item would be 19.50?



As for the rule being messed up, its difficult to say what the problem could be with out knowing what the rule is. would need details on how the rule is configured to be able to guess at why it would be garbled on reinspection.

Sorry if I didn't make myself very clear!

OK, so I have a basic store with over 100 products all with a flat rate of £8 shipping.

What I'd like to do is offer 4 of those products with a cheaper delivery option, say £3.50. One of the 4 cheaper products I'l like the customer to be able to order up to 12 of them and or any of the other cheaper delivery products but still only charge £3.50 in total.

If a product that is not a part of the cheaper set is added then the deliver charge should be £8 total.

So never more than £8.

This may seem really obvious to someone of experience but it's baffling me.

OK, to accomplish this, you should add another column to your cart for itemType.

in the add to cart buttons, set the value of the item type column to 1 for the cheaper items and 2 from the more expensive items.


you then need to create 2 shipping rules.

the first will add an £8 if an item with itemType = 2 is in the cart.


the second will add £3.50 if an itemType = 1 is in the cart, but no itemType = 2


itemType 2
Triggerrs:
"Number Of Items with a specific column value"
If the Number of items where [itemType] has a value of [2] is [>] than a value of [0]

Calculation:
flat rate charge of 8


itemType 1 - no itemType 2
Triggerrs:
"Number Of Items with a specific column value"
If the Number of items where [itemType] has a value of [1] is [>] than a value of [0]

AND
"Number Of Items with a specific column value"
If the Number of items where [itemType] has a value of [2] is [<] than a value of [1]

Calculation:
flat rate charge of 3.50
