Hi,
I found this in the forum but can not get it to work:

1. Use weight based shipping extension Extensions -> Shipping
2. Set locations (countries) you need System -> Localization -> Locations
3. Set 1 rate cost per each location  in Weight Based Shipping -> Additional settings
This will give you fixed cost per location (country in your case).

I have installed the extension Weight Based Shipping but it is not possible
to set 1 rate cost per each location.
What am I missing ?

I have following setup in the Admin:
I haved added Europe in System => Localization => Locations
Location Name = Europe
Description = All countries

I have added weight based shiping in System => Extensions
Additional Settings - weight based shipping
Europe
Rates = 5:10.00,7:12.00
Status = ON

Here is snapshot


If I go to additional settings I see nowhere a possibility to set 1 rate cost per each location.
What do i do wrong ?

Also I see default_royal_mail and default_ups but I see nowhere default_dhl
where can I find the extension default_dhl ?

We bring our products to our local post office to send them to our customers.
Is it necessary to install something like royal_mail in order to make
weight based shipping to work ?

Hello.

Looking into your snapshot there are 2 tabs: Europe and USA. Each Tab contain separate settings for each Location

Yes for example under the Tab Europe you can see my weight based shipping examples:
5:10.00,7:12.00

Edit Location - Europe
I see following 2 Tabs
Tab1 Details  Tab2 Location Zones

Under Tab Details it says:
Location Name = Europe
Description = All Countries

Under Tab Location Zones I have added 3 countries
Germany
Spain
Switzerland

However the only editable option for these 3 countries
is to delete them. There is no option for these countries
to add weight based shipping values. Why is that ?

Also when I go to Catalogue => Products and edit a product there
there are only 1.Free Shipping - 2.Fixed Shipping Price and 3.Weight settings
but no weight based shipping.

Hello.

Weigt Based shipping have setting for Locations only.
you need to configure required locations separately for your needs. Please read documentation how to create and configure Locations in AbanteCart. Each location can contain one state OR some states from one country OR all states from several countries - configure it for your online business.

Ok
I made a custom Location and named it Deutschland-1
I added 3 zones to Deutschland-1
1. Nordrhein-Westfalen
2. Hamburg
3. Bayern

Then I went to Extensions => Shipping => Default Weight => Edit =>
Additional Settings => Deutschland-1

There I added following Weight Based Shipping settings:   4:8.00,7:10.00
In Catalogue => Products I gave a product a weight of 200 grams.

Question: what do I do next ?
How and where will these settings appear when a client buys a 200 gram product ?

Edit:
Ok I think I finally got it, in locations you group countries, provinces, states or areas together
and give it a location name, this can be a country name but does not have to be.
For example, Europe is not a country name but a Location.
Under the Tab Details then you get Location Name and Description for the grouped countries,
provinces, states or areas. Under the Tab Location Zones you can add states or countries.
In my case I setup 2 different Locations, Europe1 and Europe2 and added countries respectively
to them with different shipping costs that you set up in:
Extensions => Shipping => Weight Based Shipping => Edit =>  Additional Settings.

Example of weight based shipping setting string:  (kilogram KG is set as measurement standard)

0.05:6.00,0.10:7.95,0.50:9.95,1.00:12.95,2.00:22.95,

from       0   until      50   grams    6.00   euro  shipping costs
from     50   until    100   grams    7.95   euro  shipping costs
from   100   until    500   grams    9.95   euro  shipping costs
from   500   until  1000   grams   12.95  euro  shipping costs
from 1000   until  2000   grams   22.95  euro  shipping costs

You will see estimated shipping costs and final shipping costs show up
in the shopping cart when a client buys something according to the
country or state the client is residing.
