Shipping Weight Table

Recommended Posts

I would like some instruction on how to setup this table. The admin page said:

 

"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"

 

I don't quit understand this phrase. From my interpretation, this table:

 

500:8.00,900:10.00,1300:15.00,1700:20.00,2000:25.00,3000:30.00,4000:40.00 would means

 

from 0-500 charge $8 for shipping, from 501-900 charge $10 for shipping, from 901-1300 charge $15 for shipping. I know my interpretation is not correct because i tried with the shopping cart and it doesn't come out this way.

 

May someone please tell me how to setup this table?

 

Btw, how do I change the Shipping Method name from 'Best Way' to something else in the Delivery Information page? Thank you in advance.

You are correct, that is what it means. Your figures may not be correct because there is a "tare" weight set up in the admin. I think it comes as 3 pounds. Check your Shipping/Packaging settings under Configuration.

 

To change the wording you will need to edit the language files.

I think there are 3 but it depends on what you have installed and if you added any.

:wako: Hello there, I am going a bit mad with the shipping rates.

First of all to say that I am using a different OsCommerce version than the one Knowledge Base is showing so some of the solutions that is giving me are not available in my version.

My problem is that i have set the table rate option as shipping method and is running mad. I konw I have to enter the same value in the table as the one in the items's weight but it is still not matching the prices I have set in the table. It appears that when I change the 'maximun package I will ship' settings is when the price changes dramatically. I ahve tried to see the code and maybe change the value there from grams to kilos or whatever but I haven't got 'lincludes' listed under 'catalogue'. However, if I go to 'tools/ file manager' then is when I see an 'includes' file. but no joy there either. When I go and open the 'includes' file I ahve not listed 'languages' so I am stuck there. CAN YOU OR ANYONE HELP ME??!!?? I AM GOING NUTS!!!!

youre hijacking a thread!

 

But, the first problem I think you have is you are looking at the current docs which are for the as yet unpublished MS3, yiou need the docs for the surrent release MS2.2

 

Second, have a look at these threads - they may help with your shipping
