Checking the product category when calculating shipping


Recommended Posts


I''m new to OSC and I'm stuck on calculating the shipping for my products.


I have this problem:


I have 2 categories. One of the categories has free shipping, the other doesn't.


I have looked through the Contributions but cannot find a contribution that allows me to setup shipping costs on one category, but not for another.

The only contribution I have found is this: free shipping by categories which does something close to what I want: sets free shipping on one category, but doesn't let me set a shipping price for another.


Is there a contribution out there that allows me to set a shipping price for one category, but have no shipping cost on another?


Or is there a contribution that I can install to modify the Products so that I can add a shipping cost to each product when adding it into OSC?


Many thanks for your help,

the other shipping price you can set globaly, i.e. take anny shipping module for that, i.e. a fixed shipping fee (is that not included by default?).


depending on how the free shipping module you pointed to works the entire chart could go shopping free if a free shipping categorie product is in the cart.

Thanks for the suggestions jdvb, I've just realised that I need 3 different shipping options in my cart!


1. Next Day Delivery - Fixed rate - I've sorted this one.


2. Shipping Option 1 - Fixed price for one category, the second category has no shipping charge.


3. Shipping Option 2 - Fixed greater price for one category, the second category has no shipping charge.



I've managed to install a module called Shipping rate per product and I can set one fixed price for a product, but I need to specify 2 fixed prices. I've had a look at the code to see if there is a way to add a second field to he Product form, but I can't seem to find it.


Has anyone done this before?

Just to let you know, I've fixed the problem!


I have installed a contrib called Multiple Individual Shipping - can set upto 4 different shipping prices per product and it works great.
