Please help with shipping rates - weight

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Was wondering if anyone could help me out with a little problem i can't seem to sort out.

 

i need to setup shipping rates by weight (using the rate table), as follows:

 

upto 1Kg = ?5.00

Between 1Kg and 5Kg = ?6.95

Between 5Kg and 10Kg = ?8.50

Between 10Kg and 15Kg = ?10.00

Between 15Kg and 20Kg = ?11.50

Between 20Kg and 25Kg = ?13.00

 

I tried to use the feature table built in but i couldn't not get it to work.

 

Any guide towards getting that to function correctly, or contributions that would help would be great.

 

thanks in advance.

 

Anthony.

First, you need to make sure that all of your catalog products have weights assigned to them. Also, are weights entered as kg's or grams in your catalog?

 

Then go into your Admin screen to -> Modules -> Shipping -> table rate.

 

Click on the table rate, then click on 'Edit.'

 

In the shipping table, if your weights are recorded in kilograms, enter your amounts like so:

 

1:5.00,5:6.95,10:8.50,15:10.00,20:11.50,25:13.00

 

If your weights are recorded in grams, change to:

 

1000:5.00,5000:6.95,10000:8.50,15000:10.00,20000:11.50,25000:13.00

 

 

HTH,

This is currently the only shipping method available to use on this order.

 

Table Rate

Best Way $1.00

The handling charged ($1.00) showes as shipping cost.

Please help.

Did you include weights in your product descriptions when entering them in the catalog? (If not, you'll need to update all of them to include the product weight for the above to work.)

 

If you do have weights entered for all of your products, what is the total weight of the items in your shopping cart?

 

Go to the admin screen to Modules -> Shipping. Click on the table rate module. Once you do, all of its parameters will be listed in a column on the right-hand side. Copy and paste that info into your reply too.

Could you explain this to me?

From Admin I added weigh to all products. It looks ok and it says " Table Rate "

but cost is what ever I add as handling charge.

Thanks

In admin, once you're in the shipping modules screen, you should see all of your modules listed in the center of the page. Click on the 'table' module. Once you do, you should see something like this in the right-hand column (this is one of my custom modules, so the wording will be different, but you should get the idea... )

Are your shipping methods installed? Please post the info I requested a couple of posts ago. Also, if your shipping methods are installed, filenames would be helpful, if you've modified them from the original.

Hi,

I am back.

Thanks for compliment. While I was looking for shipping modules I came across this:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: tep_db_query() in /home/gourmetc/public_html/add_checkout_success.php on line 3

----------- This is the script and all () are correct unless I missed somthing.

<?php

//ICW ADDED FOR ORDER_TOTAL CREDIT SYSTEM - Start Addition

$gv_query=tep_db_query("select amount from " . TABLE_COUPON_GV_CUSTOMER . " where customer_id='".$customer_id."'");

if ($gv_result=tep_db_fetch_array($gv_query)) {

if ($gv_result['amount'] > 0) {

?>

Can you look at this please and tell me how to correct this problem? Boy this PHP stuff getting on my nerv.

I am working on other site and will get back with you on that.

Thanks

That sounds like an error after installing a contrib -- best bet would be to post in the appropriate thread in the 'Contribution Support' forum.
