"UShop DISCOUNT-CLASS"
Posted by Ralf Schwab on Jan-30-00 at 09:03 AM (EST)
Hi there,

is there the possibility to programm in a further
version of Ushop the Discount-Applet in this way,
that i can use different percent-rates of Discounts.
Lets say the article Bananas should have a
10percent discount and the article Apples should have a 20percent discount.
At the moment, you can only use ONE Percent
discount for ALL ARTICLES, but in buissiness you have to calculate multiple percentages.

with best regards

Schwab,

Take a look at this information. uShop is very flexible and can usually accomodate any shipping method you need by utilizing the available options.

Hope this helps,

uShop Shipping Setup

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Admittedly, the shipping parameter is one of the more difficult parameters to setup in the uShopOrder applets. However, once you understand the format of the parameter, you will be able to setup almost any type of Shipping Method/Calculation.


Shipping Name

The shipping name can be anything you want to call the shipping method. For example, you can name the shipping method "UPS", "FED EX", or whatever you want to call it.

Calculation Method

The calculation method can be one of four values:
"FLAT RATE" - If you want to specify a flat rate to charge for shipping.
"BY_SUBTOTAL" - If you want to calculate shipping based on the product subtotal.
"BY_QUANTITY" - If you want to calculate shipping based on the total quantity of items.
"BY_WEIGHT" - If you want to calculate shipping based on the product weight. (If you use "BY_WEIGHT" you should be sure to specify the "WEIGHT" parameter in all of your product input applets.)

Shipping Table

The shipping table is a list of value=rate pairs separated by commas and can best be described in an example.

Suppose you want to calculate shipping base on the subtotal and the shipping table is specified as:

"10=$1.00,20=$2.00,30=$3.00,$4.00"

This table would be interpreted as: for orders with subtotals between $0.00 and $10.00, shipping is $1.00, for orders with subtotals between $10.00 and $20.00, shipping is $2.00, for orders with subtotals between $20.00 and $30.00, shipping is $3.00, and for all subtotals greater than $30.00, shipping is $4.00.

If you were to use the same shipping table to calculate shipping based on weight, the table would be interpreted as: for orders with weight totaling between 0 and 10, shipping is $1.00, for orders with weight totaling between 10 and 20, shipping is $2.00, for orders with weight totaling between 20 and 30, shipping is $3.00, and for all orders with weight totaling more than 30, shipping is $4.00.


PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

The shipping parameter is made by putting the Shipping Name, Calculation Method, and Shipping Table together in one comma separated string. As an example:



This shipping parameter would be interpreted as: Call this shipping method "UPS", Calculate the shipping based on "SUBTOTAL", and for subtotals up to $20 charge $5.00 shipping, for subtotals up to $35 charge $7.00 shipping, for subtotals up to $50 charge $10.00 shipping, and for subtotals greater than $50 charge $15.00 shipping.

SPECIFYING MULTIPLE SHIPPING OPTIONS

You can specify multiple shipping methods/calculations by just separating each one with a semicolon (;).


NOTE: DO NOT include a semicolon after the last shipping option.

2 . "MISSUNDERSTOOD - SHIPPING/DISCOUNT"
Posted by Schwab Ralf on Feb-14-00 at 02:47 PM (EST)
Hi Mr. Edmund,

you missunderstood me, i asked if there is a
possiblity to have in my shopping-site
2 or more articles with different DISCOUNT-RATES,
lets say i have programmed one htm-page where
i give a 10 percent discount on all trouser-prices,
and i have anothter htm-page wher i give a
20 percent discount on all t-shirts.
If i do so the U_SHOP_CART.class APPLET means
i have only one PERCENT-DISCOUNT, it cannot make a
difference between the 10 and 20 percent discount.
If i put a trouser (10% discount) in my shopping-
cart and then put a t-shirt (20% discount) in
the cart, there is only a 10% discount
calculated - for both articles !

What to do ?


with best regards

Schwab,

You are correct, I did mis-understand you. I apologize. Unfortunately your assumption was correct. The discount applies to the order, not the product. I'll include your suggestion in our future features database.

If your need is more urgent then you can send a note to support@uburst.com and inquire about a modification.

Sorry that I was not able to help you more.
