We sell one item in our store. We were wondering if it is possible to setup a shipping matrix like the following:

1 book $3 ship/handling

2-4 books $7 ship/handling

5-9 books $10 ship/handling

10-25 books $15 ship/handling

26+ $20 ship/handling

Right now I know that we can set a flat rate of shipping per product or per order but I don't think there's a way to do this. Is there?

Thanks

So you'd add something like:

Shipping and Handling{1+3|2+7|5+10|10+15|26+20}

That'd have to be type discount_quantity_amount, but it should work. This should be added to the CATEGORY, and not to the products themselves. So you'd probably just stick this in the default category in the FC admin.

Not the most ideal solution, but I think it should at least get you by until we roll our "supership" (which is still a ways off). Might get weird depending on how you're doing taxes, but worth a shot.

Let us know how that works out for you.

Thanks for the pointers. I would give that a try except that we already have quantity discounts in place for these products. Are we stuck in this case then?

The combination of the two (line-item and category) seems to work, but you can't have 2 line-item or two category-based discounts at the same time.

I tested this out and it does seem to work. However using the parameter 'discount_quantity_amount' adds that amount per book and I was hoping to add it for the total order. Thus the scale would be a decreasing amount of shipping per number of items ordered. The above actually has an increasing cost of shipping per book. I didn't realize until I started playing with it.

Also, how will this play with quantity percentage discount? Which is calculated first?

Thanks.

I believe it's the line-item discounts first, then the category discounts.

You can change the + to - to get it to subtract per book rather than add the "discount" per book. Is that what you mean? So:

Shipping and Handling{1-3|2-7|5-10|10-15|26-20}

Is that what you're looking for?

At the same time, 10+ Books get a $1 discount each, 20+ books $2 each, and 100+ $3 each.

If I understand correctly, the way to implement this is to do the shipping discounts on a per-item and the other discounts on a per-category basis?

Thanks.

a) orders of 10+ books get 12.5% discount - can solve that with category discount

b) orders of 10+ books also get free shipping - that's a combination of ANY books, so line-item discount wouldn't work (unless I am misunderstanding it) and I'd need to use a category discount but can't have two.

Your super shipping module is not about to be released by any chance???

In addition to the above, I'm stuck setting up the other shipping costs where 1 book = 3 shipping and 2-9 books = 6 shipping.

Any help appreciated.

This thread should help you out, the first post and my last post should be what your after I think.
