Table rate and wigh problem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to use Table Rate but I can't make it work properly.

I tried with two items just for a test and it does not work.

Weight of one item is: 1.3

and weight of second item is: 0.7

Table Rate is: 0.8:14,1.4:26,1.9:38

and it's set to table method: weight

 

Now I check one item and shipping cost is 0 instead of 26, and then I check second item and cost is 0 instead of 14. When I check 2 items at once shipping cost is 0 too

 

Any ideas?

Thank you

Actually I'm close to make it work, 3 details were wrong (I suppose):

1. Configuration -> Shipping/Packaging I changed "Larger packages - percentage increase." to 0 (guess that it wasn't this but I didn't want it) and more important I changed "Package Tare weight" to 0 because I calculate item with tare package weight in table rate so it was counted twice.

I also wrote weight in other format I don't kow if it's this but I made it all at once so I write it all to make sure that I will help you.

I changed weight format from 0.700 (700g) to 7 (it means 700g now) and 1.3 changed to 13 (it means 1300g) now.

I will let you know when I make it work perfectly

Hi,

 

Just spotted this thread as i was having the same problem, never realised that those settings were active, wish i had as i've spent 3 days trying to figure out why when 1 unit of weight = ?5.00 i was getting ?25 delivery charge for 2 units instead of ?10.00!

 

I actually used the "Simple Weight" contribution, and it worked great for my needs as i can assign a weight value of say 1 and give it a monetry value of ?2.00, that way a product with a weight value of "3" would have a weight value of ?6.00. May be worth looking at if thats the kind of thing your thinking.

 

Regards,

 

Rob

The problem you have here is that you are exceeding the maximum weight in the table. if you do that, it results in a zero.

To trest the theory, make your final weight something like 100

then buy a couple of things, you should see it report the correct prices.

 

maybe try 0.8:14,1.4:26,1.9:38,100:50
