Weight Shipping

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to add a shipping module to my store where shipping is based on weight.

 

For example ;

 

An item that weighs 2KG will be charged 19.99 shipping and an item that weighs 2.5KG will be charged 29.99 shipping.

 

Is it possible for items that I leave the weight as 0 to be charged nothing for shipping.

 

Could someone please tell me what to put in the table rate module for shipping.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Anthony

The weight fields work like this:

 

weight:cost,weight:cost, etc

 

The first weight you put in will be from zero to that weight and the cost after the colon will be the cost for that weight range. Say you had this on that field:

 

.01:0.00,100:3.50,200:4.50

 

What that would mean is anything under .01 would cost nothing. Anything between .01 and 100 would cost 3.50, and anything between 100 and 200 would cost 4.50. Cover all the ranges you need and make sure you go high enough to cover any reasonable order.

 

Make sure you have a last one in there with a ridiculous weight and cost such as 100000;9999 to alert you to weight problems with your catalog items and to discourage credit card fraud.

Hi

 

I must be dense, this is exactly what I would like to do (even better to take the weight listed for the item have them add up at check out and then have the shipping cost figured out) where does one input the formula you listed here. I can not find weight listed anywhere in the program.

Have you looked in your shop admin?

 

Products have wt.

 

Not wt in kg or grams, just a number. Delivery can be set up to charge by wt but osc interprets a wt of 10 as 10 not 10kg or 10g.

 

you then set up in your charging formula how much you charge for 10.

Hi..

 

I'm trying to figure this shipping stuff out as well.

 

I got 14 different Zones. And I was thinking to use weight like >1kg, 1-5kg, 5-10kg, 10-20kg, 20-30kg.

Look something like this:

 

1:7,5:8.90,10:9.11,20:15.95,30:20.65

weightcost

Am I close?..

 

The 14 different zones might mess it up, got any tips?

 

Sincerely,

SimonSay

Hi,

 

Why use so many zones?

Most post companys have only 3 or 4.

setting the amount is this

0:Price,1:Price,5:price,10:price,20:price

 

This way all between 0 and 1 have the 0 price etc

 

I use MZMT_Shipping V1.2 myzelf

 

That works perfect, I have zone europe 1 and europe 2 and rest of world, according to TNT NL

Thanks, Great Tip with the MZMT_Shipping V1.2 Contribute.

I will down load it and give it a try. Hope It will help with the Different Zones.

 

Why use so many zones?

It is a French company.. So I guess its all the colonies that makes many of the zones.. Im not sure.

Bit pricey though..

I believe I'll only find costumers in the first 6 zones, but you'll never know.

 

setting the amount

 

0:Price,1:Price,5:price,10:price,20:price

 

So the price between 0 and 1 is the price from 0 to 1.

and the price after 20 is the price from 20 and upp?

 

It like

 

"Start value" : "The price", "Up to the End value" ..and repeat?

 

Sincerely,

SimonSay

I need some help with Shipping weight as well.

 

I am using the Table Rate module.

 

My products, all have a weight from 1-2 (1.00,1.25...) but nothing higher.

 

The problem is, that each cart starts with a weight of 3, and then adds in the product weight. For instance if I add a 1 product that it's weight is 1, then my carts total weight would be 4! If I add another one, my cart will weigh 5.

 

Where is those 3 coming from? How can I get rid of it?

 

Thanks,

Leibtek
