"$5 handling on orders under $25"
Posted by Jeff Cashman on Jan-03-00 at 09:52 PM (EST)
How do I set a $5.00 handling fee on orders under $25.00, no handling on orders over $25.00?

Also, is there a difference between $ 2.50 and $2.50 (formatting)?

I also need an answer to the question you ask. In addition I would like to know how to add handling to specific items, or classes of items. ie. Items over 25 pounds ...

I see questions here but now answers. How does this service work?

Jeff,

Sorry, but that's not a configurable feature of uShop at this time. uShop is quite flexible in the shipping charges though. Could you configure the shipping in such a manner as to get your handling fee? Here is some shipping configuration information:

Hope this helps you, Charlie Edmunds

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.

Thanks.

Try this:

PARAM NAME=shipping VALUE="My Shipping,BY_SUBTOTAL,0=$5.00,25=$0.00"
