Hi, before I go and look to code this for my store I want to make sure I am not missing something here. This what I need to do…
I have a fixed shipping rate to my customers, so do not want or need to have the customer go through the estimation process. Actually I will remove the box completely. Now the complications are:
1. For some products I have a second tier of shipping due to size (not weight) There could be identified via an attribute
2. I want to give free shipping over a certain sub total in the cart.
Now for 2 I know I am supposed to be able to do it in the shopping rules but the display is not clear due to it being displayed as a ‘discount’ but also as soon as I put one of the more expensive items in the basket the discount is not enough…
I have been able to set-up this tier using weight but I still have the problem of free shipping + I still have to have the customer click the estimate shipping.
So any suggestions? I am thinking that I will need to write a new shipping module linked to an attribute?
An additional question is that as soon as I remove the estimate shipping module the shipping does not appear - even if I just use the flat rate shipping method. Is this right?
