Need extra shipping fee added to options...


Recommended Posts

I am having some big problems and wonder if this has been looked into or if anyone knows how to add this on...


I have products that have options the customer can add. For instance, I sell a 12 volt portable air conditioner for $39.95 with 4 options to choose from:


1) Igloo Family 25qt Cooler (+ $29.95)

2) AC / DC Converter (+ $24.95)

3) Portable Power Pack (+ $59.95)

4) PVC Air Flow Elbow (+ $3.95)


My problem is this, #1, 2 and 3 above add quit a bit of shipping for me to ship. #3 is really heavy and cost me the most. But at checkout, shipping is only added for the weight of the item itself so I am loosing a lot of money when my customers buy the extra options. Usually just break even and sometimes process that sale at a small loss.


How can I get extra shipping to be added to the options?

You might look at something like Actual Attribute Price. While its main function is to allow actual prices for attributes, there is an update that includes attribute weights which you should be able to use to adjust overall shipping costs if they are calculated by weight. It might be a hack but should work.
