I have table rates set up for calculating shipping based on the order value. It’s working fine when I have all real products OR all downloadable/virtual products in the cart (no shipping charged). But when there are both real and downloadable/virtual products, the value of the downloadable/virtual products is being (wrongly, I presume) included in the calculation of the order value for the purpose of the shipping calculation. I want to exclude any downloadable/virtual products from the shipping calculation. (This must be a bug, surely? Why would you include a downloadable or virtual product in the order value for calculating shipping charges?? Isn’t that th epoint of these products--they don’t have to be shipped?!)
I can’t see it in any bug reports. Does anybody know if it has been reported as a bug?
I see that there is an extension that says it solves the problem:
But the guy is charging $500, which seems a ridiculous amount of money—especially since it seems like a bug fix rather than an extension to Magento.
Does anybody know a way around this problem? Do any other shipping extensions, like AuctionMaid MatrixRate, overcome this problem?
Thanks for any help.
