"3.0 Shipping strictly by percentage"
Posted by Lawrence on Oct-11-00 at 10:06 PM (EST)
I saw a discussion in this forum dated last April that was started by a question from Darryl Hosford about calculating shipping strictly by percentage. At that time, uShop v3 was not released.

I have not found any documentation for calculating shipping strictly by percentage of the subtotal for version 3. IOW, my store wants to charge 15% for surface shipping for orders outside the US. Can it be done?

In the response to Darryl, it was mentioned that this could be simulated by a table. That would be fine if that was the only way to accomplish it. However, I was hoping that with version 3, percentage calculation may have been added.

Has it?

Thanks

Try using the "Subtotal Formula" as described in Section 11.1.4 of the User's Guide:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/reference/users_guide.html#GENERALSETTINGS4

The subtotal formula calculates the shipping charge based on the formula:

Shipping Charge = (ORDER SUBTOTAL * X) + Y

So if you wanted to charge 15% of the subtotal, then you could set X to $0.15 and Y to $0.00...So your shipping settings could be:

CALCULATION TYPE: Subtotal Formula
SHIPPING NAME: My International Surface Shipping
SHIPPING TABLE/VALUE: $0.15,$0.00

Thanks. After posting this question, I saw those instructions in the reference manual. I attempted to try them, however, for some reason values are not being passed to my display_cart.html. It comes up blank. I have to try to figure out what is happening there.
