Hi. I bought this item some time ago and it has been working well. The shipping config has now changed and I need to make some adjustments.

I have the following setup: - shipping zones for the various postal codes in my country - table rates for each of the shipping zones using the weight per kg example you share on your website as we have a shipping scenario that is per kg above 10kg and this was the only way to get it to work. - volumetric pricing for larger items

All is working fine

Now I need to add an additional handling fee for every order to cover the cost of the packaging etc. This is a flat 12%.

How to integrate? - Do I add a second handling fee for each and every zone for 12%? - Do I add the 12% into the existing handling fee line for each zone IN ADDITION to the flat rate fee per zone? (use both fields?) - Do I add another line to the shipping table for each zone for a % rate? Will this be added to the other rates in the cart?

Please advise if this is possible.

Thanks Cat

Unfortunately only one handling fee per zone will be saved. However, you should be able to use both a flat fee and a percentage based fee in each row. There can only be one Cost per option at this time, so it wouldn’t be possible to simply add a new row there and have it combined.

If all else fails, you can try a code tutorial like this one: http://www.bolderelements.net/support/knowledgebase/add-6-surcharge-to-shipping/

Hi there, Is it possible to have 2x default prices for shipping (express and standard) also need a price for each based on if they order more or less than 4x products (so 4x base prices in total) - but for specific products in seperate classes add on an extra cost of say +$1 etc. We have about 10x different extra prices so adding in 4x lines + 4x lines of deleting rows doesn’t seem practical per class – is there any other way of doing this?

I’m afraid no, not simply at least, assuming I understood you correctly. The plugin is about creating a table of conditions and their given prices. I think the closest you could get is to use the Per Class condition. This would group items in the cart based on the shipping class so that you could setup different prices and rules based on which group they belong to.

From there you could price each item differently and based on how many the customer purchases. If you need a base price for each to be added to, you could try the Handling Fees table.

If this doesn’t help or if I misunderstood, please leave an example or something so I can better understand. Then perhaps I could give a better answer.

Hi, I bought this plugin but i don’t know why everytime i want to save changes it doesn’t. I tried to change php version, to higher up the execution time, max_input vars and many other stuff. I wanna add some rows to my table but i can’t. What should i do?

The only issue that I am aware of is large tables, you reach the max_input_vars limitation. However, increasing the value does not always take. I recommend using a php.ini file directly in the wp-admin folder, but not all servers are the same. I would recommend contacting your hosting provider, or setting up a phpinfo() file in the wp-admin folder to ensure that the setting is actually changed.

We know that some users have very long tables and this has definitely been taken into consideration for changes made in version 4.0. Hopefully this will just be a temporary issue for you until 4.0 is ready.

Hey there, is there a way of putting the table rate method above the the shipping zones method? I use the shipping zones shipping method for flat rate USPS Priority and the table rates for USPS First Class. Since First Class is the less expensive option I want it to be above the Priority flat rate option. Is that possible?

Unfortunately there is no way to sort legacy shipping methods (methods that do not use the new shipping zones) from the settings page. You can do so through code, however. The following tutorial has helped several others:

This plugin will be making the switch soon, but until then I hope this can help.
