Shipping Calculation with Item Attributes?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys/girls... I have run into one stump after another with this site that I am trying to develop. Everything is fine except for the shipping... I need to find a module or a way to charge shipping based on each product, but each product is offered in different sizes (which are choose able by attributes assigned to the product). I have tried to use the table rate, where it is based on price, which seems to work, but the only problem i run into is where if you buy 2 of the smaller priced products, it will charge you the next rate, and not double of the rate that it should be charging... For example... I have a product that is $3.50... if you add 1 to the cart, it charges 5.70 shipping, which is what it should be... then if I add 2 of the product that is $3.50 instead of doubling the $3.50 rate, it charges the next shipping rate up, which is 6.70...I cannot setup a price per product shipping module, because technically I only have 1 product, but the product has multiple attributes that affect the price, anywhere from 3.50 - 77.50... and they all require different shipping rates... If anyone has any ideas on how I may more easily set this up, I would extremely appreciate it... Thank you in advance, and I hope my thread makes sense...

The only thing that I don't think will work about that is that my product doesn't actually have a price... if you follow the link you will see what i am up against :)

That is how each product will be listed... when you select the appropriate attribute, it will add that much to the base price of 0.00 for the product... is there a way that I can get that contribution to still work with what i have?

 

I like to make things difficult I guess, lol

With add-on 1716 OK yes you would not be using the price prefix on the attribute but as a customer to see the full price of the attrbute it is better and as to the price of the main item the price can be hidden.

then the customer has only one place to work out the price and not 2 place and add them up (and poss get it wrong and then email the shop all the time) then think if they will order or not.

you may find that you could still find it workes with the prefix?

 

if not then the wight box from the add-on could still be taken out of the add-on and use by its self the would take a bite of coding but could be done? depending on time it needs to be done it would not take long?
