"All in one shipping"

Recommended Posts

In the description of this extension it says...

"Each shipping method can have an unlimited number of shipping rates (refer to Shipping Rate Examples below)."

I'm unable to find the examples. Can anyone help with some documentation please?

Open the AIOS module control panel. Enable the criteria you want to determine shipping rates. There are more, less-often used criterias available if you click the "Show advanced settings" link. For this lesson, choose weight-based and subtotal-based. Save.

Clink on the Add Shipping Zone tab. On this page, give a short name/description, such as 'Canada'. If this zone is based on a country, check the 'One or more countries' radio button. Choose the name(s) of the country(s) that apply to this country-based zone. Save.

Click on the 'Canada' tab (or whatever you named this zone). You have the first five rows to define shipping prices for each combination of criteria.

You see:
Order Weight Limits and Subtotal Limits
For the first row, enter:
0  1  0  49.99
respectively in each text entry box.

For the second row, enter:
1.1  5  0  49.99
respectively in each text entry box.

For the third row, enter:
0  1  50  99.99
respectively in each text entry box.

For the fourth row, enter:
1.1  5  50  99.99
respectively in each text entry box.

Now, determine how much you want to actually charge for shipping in each of these four cases.

Up to 1Lb and less than $50 will have a Shipping Price of 5.00
Above 1Lb to 5Lb and less than $50 will have a Shipping Price of 7.00
Up to 1Lb and $50 to less than $100 will have a Shipping Price of 6.00
Above 1Lb to 5Lb and $50 to less than $100 will have a Shipping Price of 8.00

Now, determine what you want the customer to see as a description for each case. Badly worded choices could be:

Small and Cheap
Large and Cheap
Small and Expensive
Large and Expensive

There is another row that you can use for heavier or more expensive orders.

If you need more rows, click the 'Add new shipping rates' green-plus button. After using those, if you need more, click the button again. Eventually, click the "Save all changes" button.

Hopefully, the customer's order will have a weight and subtotal that matches one or more of the criteria ranges established for a zone. To determine this, enable Debugging mode. With this enabled, there will be a preamble to the checkout page detailing what AIOS attempted to match against.

Do not enter weight or currency symbols. The values entered are assumed to be what the store's default settings have for using these values.
