Table Rate Shipping

Recommended Posts

I have created a new shipping module for my store that uses a Table Rate shipping calculation for my country.

 

Basically I copied the Table Rate module and modified small bits of it to do some things I needed.

 

That works 100% noting that under Configuration->Shipping/Packaging I have set the package maximum weights etc.

 

Now however, I wish to add shipping to other countries. Does the setting in Configuration->Shipping/Packaging affect all shipping modules? If so, what are my options?

 

Essentially shipping overseas lets me put a lot more into a single package (products weigh grams).

 

Thanks for any help,

David

If you refer to the tare weight under Config/Shipping-Packaging - (1) The tare weight effects on all shipping modules that counts weight in. But not (2) for those that don't, e.g. Flat Rate, Per Item, Zone Rates and (3) However, Table Rate module could be something different - It depends on whether you choose Weight or Price as the Table Method. You might do a test on it.

 

BTW, there is a contrib: Customer Table Rate with 2 Fields that "you can base your shipping cost on both price AND weight". you might well take a look into it.

 

Good Luck!
