Hi foxycart team and forum.
I have a client using foxycart who would like to be able to place an order on a customer's behalf while manually entering the shipping amount based on an offline shipping calculation.
The scenario is: A customer places and order for 10 of 1 item over the telephone.The item is large and heavy and costs about $10 shipping per item when ordered singly. However, if a customer wants to order in bulk, say for 10 of the items, we can package 10 of the item into a different size box and charge a more reasonable amount of shipping.
How can we set it up so that we can enter the order for the customer with a self-calculated shipping cost?
Do we have to establish a rule for shipping cost for all likely order quantities? Or, is there a way to add a text box during check out to manually entering the appropriate shipping rate? Or, is there a different, better way?
Thanks for your support!
