Individual Shipping with multiple additional costs

Recommended Posts

I've been looking through the Shipping Modules forum and am impressed by the flexibility. Truly amazing that so many different shipping cost scenarios are supported. Nice job!

 

Though I haven't been able to find any guidance on how to setup my client's shipping cost needs. My client sells millions of dollars of their product yearly and have what looks like unique requirements. It would seem that their needs are not fully supported, but I thought I would try to define them here and see if someone can point me in the right direction or tell me if this is even possible.

 

1) The client ships only to the continental US, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Guam, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. We need to eliminate all other country options from the Country dropdown list.

 

2) Shipping cost varies per product and are charged regardless of any additional shipping charges itemized below. Ie:

  • Product #1 - $4.95/per item
  • Product #2 - $7.95/per item
  • etc...

The above shipping costs are a flat,
per item
, base cost and are mandatory for all destinations.

 

3) There is no additional charge for shipping to anywhere in the continental US.

 

4) There is a $10.00 additional charge per order for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Guam, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

 

5) There is a $9.95 optional charge per order for priority processing to any of these locations.

 

A few examples:

 

Customer orders three of Product #1 to be shipped anywhere in the continental US. No priority processing:

 

$4.95 base cost * 3

--------------------------------

$14.85 shipping charge

 

Customer orders three of Product #1 to be shipped to Guam. No priority processing:

 

$4.95 base cost * 3

$10.00 additional (Guam)

-------------------------------

$24.85 shipping charge

 

Customer orders three of Product #1 to be shipped to Guam. Priority processing:

 

$4.95 base cost * 3

$10.00 additional (Guam)

$9.95 priority processing

-------------------------------

$34.80 shipping charge

 

Customer orders three of Product #1 to be shipped to continental US. Priority processing:

 

$4.95 base cost * 3

$9.95 priority processing

-------------------------------

$24.80 shipping charge

 

Customer orders one of Product #1 and one of Product #2 to be shipped to continental US. Priority processing:

 

$4.95 base cost (Product #1)

$7.95 base cost (Product #2)

$9.95 priority processing

-------------------------------

$22.85 shipping charge

 

You get the idea...

 

I have purchased WP Combo and installed the Individual Shipping Rate module. This provides the base cost for each product and per item, but I don't understand how I can add the additional $10 charge for selected destinations, nor how to provide an option for priority processing.

 

The flexibility afforded by the many contributions to WP Online Store/osCommerce is impressive. I will be even more impressed and even blown away if there is a configuration to accomodate my client's particular shipping needs.

 

Does anyone know how I might tackle this?
