Advanced Shipping Price Rules - Shipping Cost on Product Weight
This rule is used to apply gradually increasing, decreasing or stable flat rate shipping rate to a particular range of product weight.
In this, you have to mention the product, minimum product weight, maximum product weight and the amount which will be added or subtracted per kg. To keep the flat rate shipping cost stable throughout the range you’ve created, keep the fee amount zero.
How it works:
Let’s say you have mentioned
minimum weight as ‘x’ and
maximum weight as ‘x+12’ where the weight is in kilograms. So, it has created a range of
12kgs for a particular product, as you’ve selected.
Now, to increase the amount for shipping for this range per added kg, keep the weight amount positive.
To decrease the amount with increasing weight, keep it negative.
The fee amount will be added to the base flat rate shipping fee amount, which you’ve filled in the Fee section of the main form (Shipping Fee configuration) of this method.
So, if you add $1, then the customers will be
charged base fee + $1 for the x kgs while base fee + $5 for x+4kgs.
Charge the customer with $10+ if s/he buys 4 -10 kgs of AR Casting, increasing shipping fee by $0.5 per kg.
