OrillaCart offers an embedded standard shipping method and ability to add extra shipping extensions as well.
Shipping method extensions are best choice for most ecommerce store owners and developers. They provide you with fully embedded customer services from the chosen shipping company.
Installation – We provide our shipping methods as a separate plugin. If you want to install one, follow the standard plugin installation through Word Press dash board.
Standard shipping is fully capable shipping method which can recreate all rates for any shipping company. You can setup very simple or complex shipping rates in no time.
Set up shipping: All settings regarding the shipping methods are located in Shipping Methods menu. Let’s create a new Standard shipping method by clicking on the “new” button.
Fields and options description
Shipper Company: The name of your shipping company.
Predefined class: Select the type of your shipping. You can choose from standard shipping or premium shipping extensions.
The class options are developed because in some cases you may need better control over the logic that is used to select the proper rates. In most cases the “and” setting is what is needed.
Lets take for example the weight and height. You have a ranges for them, that means that you can enter from and to values.
And condition:The logic allows better precision on selecting the proper rule. If you select and for weight and and for height, the order weight and height must be in the ranges specified in the rates ranges. But if one of the ranges do not cover the order value the rate will be discarded.
Or condition: At least one of the ranges must cover the order.
And/not condition: If set for the weight, the order weight must not be in that range, otherwise the rate will be discarded.
Or/not condition: If the weight for example is not in that range, then the rate will be selected.
Creating shipping rates using the weight value of the product
Create shipping rates by clicking on the “List Rates” button, and then add new. Let’s for example create zero rate shipping for less than 1kg.
From 0 kg to 1 kg.
Shipping Rate Name: Free Shipping
Weight Start: 0 (0 kilograms)
Weight End: 1 (1 kilogram)
Country: Select for which country the rate to be available.
Shipping Rate: The price of the shipping. In this case 0.
Shipping vat group: If you want to add additional taxes to the shipping rate.
Multiply by quantity sum: Use this option if you want to create a very simple shipping method. Select Yes and the price of the shipping will be multiplied by the quantity of the products. In this case we will not use this option.
For the next weight interval create another shipping rate in Test Shipping.
From 1 kg to 2 kg.
Shipping Rate Name: 10$ Rate
Weight Start: 1.001 (more than 1 kilograms)
Weight End: 2 (2 kilogram)
Shipping Rate:10 (Price 10$)
From 2 kg to 5 kg.
Shipping Rate Name: 20$ Rate
Weight Start: 2.001 (more than 2 kilograms)
Weight End: 5 (5 kilogram)
Shipping Rate:20 (Price 20$)
In the example above we use only weight as a determining parameter. In this case you have to add only the weight value in the product dimensions form. Otherwise if you add weight and length for example, there will be no corresponding shipping rate.
