The Shipping Override shipping extension provides the ability to manipulate live rates.
Deciding what you want to achieve
The first step to using this extension is to think about how you want to use it. Some of the questions you should be asking are:
- What shipping groups (categories) do I need to create for my products
- What delivery types do you have?
- What rules will you define for those delivery types?
- Are different product groups using different rules?
- Do I wish to filter shipping based on:
- Product type
- Shipping Group Price
- Product Group Weight
- Customer Group
If you have a set of business requirements and are struggling to translate these into logical rules that can be implemented in an extension why not let us do help you at WebShopApps? We have extensive knowledge not just of our extensions but also of shipping and how it works. There aren’t many scenarios we haven’t seen.
We can provide ‘starter’ csv files based on your requirements, together with comprehensive advise for your particular scenario and how best to implement to achieve the right shipping rates. We can do as little as a sample configuration right up to full install and setup.
