Charge extra fees for shipment to particular locations
« on: September 24, 2014, 01:09:32 AM »
Hello.

I almost done setting up my first shop with Abantecart.

I have only one problem left. I need to charge the buyers of a small extra fee
if the shipment is directed to some particular locations in Italy that are particularly expensive.

I tried looking at the flat rate extension with no luck.

How can I solve the problem?


Thank You.

Alessandro

I resolved splitting  Italy in 2 sub zones and assigning different locations.

Anyone know how this would be done in the US?   A lot of the zones are state based so what would be the best way to split up a state into multiple zones...such as by zip codes or at least the 1st 3 digits in a zipcode?

Maybe I need to look into editing or doing searches in zone.php?

Hi.

As for my problemi I proceeded this way.

First I created 2 different locations: "Italy" and "Italy Islands".

Then I assigned the different zones to each location.

Then in the weight based shipping extensions I associated two different pricing for the 2 locations above.
Now when the buyer chooses a zone located in an italian island an overprice is applied.

It works. I know Your problems is more complicated, hope this can help.

Alessandro
