Weight based Shipping Rules

For the business owners who use airway for product delivery, it becomes essential to deploy shipping charges as per cart’s weight. That’s why our plugin allows you to use this option and apply flat rate shipping charges according to cart’s weight in Kilograms. 


Creating a Weight Based Shipping Method
Lets set a requirement that we’d want to configure first. Let's say we want to have the following weight rates to be setup:
1. if the cart weight total is less than and equal to 5lbs the charge $23 as shipping charges on the cart
2. if the cart total weight is greater than and equal to 5lbs then charge $19 as shipping charges on the cart
3. if the order amount is between 5lbs to 10lbs then charge $19 as shipping charges on the cart
This is a pretty simple and straight forward configuration. It can best be set up using the ‘Weight’ condition to create weight ranges.


Example 1: Here you can enter maximum cart/product weight for which the shipping method should be visible.

Eg. you can specify this like total cart weight is 5lbs. In this case, the shipping method will only be visible to the customer if the cart weight total is less than and equal to 5lbs. For cart having greater than 5lbs weights, it will not be visible.

Example 2: Here you can enter Minimum Cart Weight after which the shipping method should be visible. 

Eg. you can specify this like total Cart weight is 5 lbs. In this case, the shipping method will only be visible to the customer if the cart total weight is greater than and equal to 5lbs. For cart having less than 5 lbs weight, it will not be visible. 

You can use this feature when you want to skip shipping charge when the cart total weight is less than what you specified.
