Function Definition
Filter on subtotal price & weight In the csv file where you have shipping groups defined you can choose to filter based on the weight/price of the products in cart for that shipping group or the total weight/price of cart. E.g.: If there are $30 of products assigned to the BOOKS shipping group and $20 of CDS then this will use a cart price of $50 when using price-based filters.
Use Base Currency Prices Use the price of the base currency as opposed to store currency when calculating rules to match
Use Discounted Prices Use the discounted prices (after promotions applied) when calculating rules to match
Use Pattern Matching By default this extension will match based on the shipping method output by the carrier e.g. Next Day Air. There are scenarios where this value changes e.g. if a date is at end. In that scenario set this switch to YES and put a .* at end e.g. Courier.* will match on all shipping methods that start with Courier
Use Custom Option SKU as Shipping Group Allow shipping groups to be used in products’ custom options.
Use Tax Inclusive Prices In Magento shipping is calculated based on excl tax price. There are a very few scenarios where the incl tax price is needed
Use Text based Shipping Group If the attribute entered in the “Shipping group attribute” field is a textual attribute this option will need to be selected. The default attribute, special_shipping_group, uses a drop-down field so this should not be selected if using the default shipping group attribute
Use with Dropship Warehouse Adds warehouse ID column filter for use in conjunction with the Dropship extension.
