Adding Attributes to Product Listing


Instructions for setting up the Attributes can be found «HERE»

Creating Shipping Zones



Shipping Zones define the different groups of countries you ship to. You use these to split up your shipping rates. For example, you may have a set of rates for UK, another for rest of Europe, and another for Rest of World. You would have 3 zones in this scenario.

Define your zones under System→Manage Shipping Zones


You can create upto 8 shipping zones.




Assigning Shipping Rates to Products



The shipping rates are defined within the product listing. If you have added the attributes to your attribute set as instructed above you should see a Shipping tab with 8 zone fields.


You set the price for each zone as applicable and save the listing.

Totalling Algorithm



The shipping price is calcuated by taking the sum of the zone prices for each item in the cart.  For example if you have 3 items in cart 1*A & 2*B and the destination country is Zone 1 then the shipping price is Zone1A ship price + 2 * Zone1 B ship price.
