Advanced Fees Price Rules - Cost on Total Cart Weight

How to Use the "Cost on Total Cart Weight" Advanced Fee Price Rule

The "Cost on Total Cart Weight" advanced fee price rule enables you to apply gradually increasing, decreasing, or stable fee amounts based on a specific range of the total cart weight.

To utilize this rule, follow these steps:

  1. Specify the minimum and maximum total cart weight for the desired range. For example, you can set the minimum weight as 'x' and the maximum weight as 'x+12' where the weight is measured in kilograms. This will create a range of 12 kgs.
  2. To increase the fee amount for this weight range per added kilogram, keep the fee amount positive. Conversely, to decrease the fee amount with increasing weight, keep the fee amount negative.
  3. The fee amount will be added to the base fee amount, which you've filled in the Fee section of the main form (Fee Configuration) for this method. For instance, if you add $1, customers will be charged a base fee + $1 for the 'x' kgs, and the base fee + $5 for 'x+4' kgs. This rule will be applied to the overall cart.

Here's an example:

Let's say you want to charge customers $6 if they buy items weighing between 20-50 kg, with an additional fee of $5. Follow these steps to set it up:

  1. Go to the configuration section of the main form (Fee Configuration) and add a base fee amount of $6.
  2. In the Advanced Fees Price Rules section, select the 'Cost on Total Cart Weight' rule. Configure the weight range and fee amount as follows:
    • Minimum total cart weight: 20 kg, Maximum total cart weight: 50 kg, Fee amount: $5.
  3. Save the changes.

If a customer purchases items weighing between 20-50 kg, the fee will be calculated as follows:

  • Base fee of $6
  • An additional fee of $5 for the weight range of 20-50 kg

Total fee = Base fee + Additional fee = $6 + $5 = $11
