Need revamp of MVS store shipping charges


Recommended Posts

Hi Guy's


I have a store with MVS which has been running for a couple of years. However I need to change the way the shipping charges are worked out and charged.


I need to retain the way the back end purchase orders (the emails to the supplier) are raised for the individual suppliers, however for the front end I want the shipping calculated as if the supplies are from one vendor. Please bare with me for a moment while I explain. The reason for this is that a customer can buy two products from two of my suppliers, and based on product weight the customer can be charged £5 shipping on both products to give a total shipping charge of £10, but I'd like the system to look at the product weights as being from one supplier, and only charge the customer say £6. Which is what would happen in a standard OSC store.


How can I achieve the above changes please?


Thanks in advance for reading this and hopefully offering a positive reply :)

Now sorted :)


I've never really studied some parts of the admin and the effects of 'switching' things on and off.


For anyone who comes along with the same question as mine. In admin I found you can 'turn off' MVS (I thought it was a permanent fixture), but then you need to set up a shipping method to suit your overall requirements. I've been using a tired system, such as;


But if you have products with combined shipping costs, you need to add in front of the above line 0:0, so that the system doesn't add the minimum 2.50 charge.
