Use higher of weight/volume
Product Matrix with volume comes with a switch in the admin panel ‘User higher of weight/volume’. When this is set to ‘No’ the extension will use the ‘Weight From’ and ‘Weight To’ columns for weight as well as the ‘Volume From’ and Volume ‘To’ columns for volume. When this switch is set to ‘Yes’ the extension will only look at the ‘Weight From’ and ‘Weight To’ column. It will take the value for weight or volume (whichever is higher) and look to match on a row using the ‘Weight From’ and ‘Weight To’ columns.
Adding Volume Attributes to your Attribute Set
- Go to Catalog –> Manage Attribute Sets
- Now drag the ship_height, ship_weight and ship_depth Unassigned Attributes over to the shipping Group.
3. Now you should see the height, depth and weight for each of your products under Catalog –> Manage Products –> Shipping.
Volume From and Volume To Columns
The Volume From and Volume To columns allow you to create shipping rules based on the volume of all items in the cart. An example of this in action is the number of cartons example below.
