Multiple Shipping Rates and Charing per Item
« on: September 05, 2008, 02:23:28 am »
I am new to Joomla and VM, but seem to be working through it easy enough. But I am running into 2 problems I cannot seem to figure out. Maybe it's just late and I'm tired...

1. Someone orders a book from my site ( and they get charged 3.50 shipping. But if they add another book to their cart, or another product, it doesn't charge shipping at all.

---Where do I set it up so that it charges shipping per item?

2. My original worry was that consumers would get charged 3.50 per book, then when they added a bookmark (only 50 cents), or maybe they only ordered a bookmark, they were still going to get charged 3.50.

---With that in mind, is there a way to have multiple shipping rates for various items? So a book is 3.50, a bookmark is 50 cents, etc.

---And is there a way to alter it so if they buy one-three books it is 3.50 a piece, but anything after three is only 1.00 a book?

Thanks in advance!
