Hi

 

Have you looked in:

 

http://addons.oscommerce.com/category/Shipping_Modules

 

if you have but still can not find one.

 

then think about this:

 

use the wight but use it as a code ie.

 

use just 1 in the wight box of the item

 

then in the wight table do

 

1 = 5.00

2 = 10.00

3 = 15.00

ect...

 

then in the shopping cart you need to change the name ref to wight to shipping code or the like.

 

I did this on one of my old site when we needed the 1st item is 5.00 and the 2nd is 10.00 and the 3rd is 19.00 then 19.00 was the most customer would pay for shipping.

In the default osCommerce there is a "Per Item" shipping module.

 

You set a price per item and the shipping charged will be based on the number of items in the shopping basket.

 

No need to install another module or to use workarounds for something that already xists.

Hi

 

Yes you are right but it is not felxable if you have a per itme as the std and you set it to 5.00 that works but if the custome puts 10 or 50 items in the cart you will not get the order as the shipping cost is to hight 50.00 or 250.00 with the above you can stop the cost when it gets to say 15.00 and then if you have a item say a pallet of good and it needes a fix price of 75.00 and still need the other 3 items to be 15.00 as the order will be 2 shippments then the std will not work.

 

to set this ie up

 

1= 5.00

2= 10.00

3= 15.00

4 to 79= 15.00

80= 75.00

81= 80.00

82= 85.00

83= 90.00

 

then all shipping cost are right

 

but this can not be don in the osC std "Per Item" shipping module?

the other way that does not look so like you are charging 50 or 250.00 is to just inc the shipping in your prices and then offer FREE shipping and you the will all ways get the order.

 

this is all because when osC started customers on the net did not look or think of the shipping so you could charge a high price but in today online shopping you can not get away with this, so until osC changes the "Per Item" shipping module to work like this it is not worth useing? and YES if you look in THIS forum you will find this time and time again.


Thanks Simon

i'm looking for something like

1-3 items $1

4-5 items $2

6-8 items $3

.....

 

Hi

 

Try is:

 

================================================================================

Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! Back up ! first !

================================================================================

 

 

Shipping Table

The shipping cost is based on the total cost or weight of items. Example: 25:8.50,50:5.50,etc.. Up to 25 charge 8.50, from there to 50 charge 5.50, etc

 

ie, 25:8.50,50:5.50,10000:0.00

 

 

so this is:

 

1-25 items $8.50

26-50 items $5.50

51-10000 items $0.00

 

 

So

 

 

1-3 items $1

4-5 items $2

6-8 items $3

9-10000 items $0.00 ( this is added if the most you will charge is $3.00)

 

your Shipping Table needs to be:

 

3:1.00,5:2.00,8:3.00,10000:0.00

 

Now, how do we set this up?

 

================================================================================

STEP 1 This is to set-up the Shipping Table

================================================================================

 

1, go to the osC admin >> Modules >> Shipping Modules >> Table Rate

2, click on Action

3, click on install

4, click on edit

5, click on True

6, input your Shipping Table

7, click on weight

8, input Handling fee for this shipping method. (if you do not charge for this then put 0 in)

9, tax class (as your needs)

10, shipping Zone (as your needs)

11, Sort Order (as your needs BUT THIS MUST NOT MATCH OTHER shipping sort orders,

and should be above 0)

12, click update.

 

that is the table set up.

 

 

================================================================================

STEP 2 this is to change the text that is shown in the checkout Delivery Information page

================================================================================

 

Go to includes/languages/english/checkout_shipping.php

 

and change this (about line 25) as needed:

define('TEXT_ENTER_SHIPPING_INFORMATION', 'This is currently the only shipping

method available to use on this order.');

 

now go to includes/languages/english/modules/shipping/table.php

 

and change as needed:

 

now have a look at checkout Delivery Information page and

redo above till it is ok for your needs

 

================================================================================

STEP 3 setting up the products

================================================================================

 

 

now for the products

 

1, click Catalog

2, click Categories/Products

3, then go to a product (I am not going in to how to set up a product)

4, got to the bottom of the page and you should see "Products Weight:" Box

5, now input the number 1

6, click on preview (THIS MUST BE DONE or it will not get saved or work)

7, check this is what you need

8, IF OK AND ONLY IF OK

9, IF IT IS NOT OK FOR YOU THEN click the back and redo it until it is OK

10, when it is OK click the insert

 

that should be it! Now got to your shop and do a demo/test order and the shipping

should now work, if not then go back over the above before re posting.

 

now repeat step's products 1 to 10 for each of your products

 

================================================================================

The End enjoy!!

================================================================================
