Where is the Addon that allows shipping fees based on weights in attributes?

Recommended Posts

Now, before you tell me to search....

I've done that.

I've downloaded at least 10 addons that looked promising, but none do what I need.

I know this thing is out here -- or a combo. But, I'd rather not download 100 things.


We use weight in the attributes. We can have attributes weighing from less than an ounce to over 5 pounds.


I found the weights in attributes addon. Works great!


I've found the various shipping addons that ship base fees on weight.


I can not find a shipping addon that can base shipping fees on weight in the ATTRIBUTE -- not the product.


Can anyone steer me to the righ place?


Thanks much, and thank you kindly. :thumbsup:

Hello people.


FILE: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1622


I download this componente and it has 2 files: products_attributes.php that i replace in catalog/admin/ directory


That part works fine and i can add the new attribut weight in admin area for each product.


The problem is that the price for shipping is not incremented in checkout cart.



IN SQL I add at products_attributes

`options_values_weight` decimal(15,2) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0.00',


It look like this:


products_attributes_id products_id options_id options_values_id options_values_price price_prefix options_values_weight

34 216 2 7 0.0000 + 0.00

35 216 2 8 16.0000 + 50.00



When costumer choose second option it increase price (options_values_price) beacause the product is bigger, but not the options_values_weight to increase shipping price in checkout_shipping.php.



The file zip that I download had also a txt file that says:

"This contribution is a modified version of v0.1 to work with pca_prod_attrib_1.00.

Just replace this file with the original catalog/admin/products_attributes.php

This is not full copy. Download full copy below.

All credit goes to respective contributor."



Download full copy below????? what I missed?

pca_prod_attrib_1.00???? I do not find it anyhere



can someone please explain me how can I add the options_values_weight to the total weight for shipping costs?


thank you very much for your attention
