Fixed shipping rate for one product only
« on: October 13, 2020, 15:46:09 pm »
Hello,

In my store, all product price includes shipping costs, except for two. I need to set the shipping cost for those two products only at 6€, regardless of the amount purchased. Does anyone know how to do this please? Thank you.

put them in a hidden (unpublished) category and set a standard VM shipping method of €6 for that category

Thank you GJC, I followed your instructions, but I encounter a problem.

I have two categories (Smoked and fresh). The two products I need to set in a fixed shipping cost belong to the Smoked category. If I take them out of their assigned category and put them in the unpublished category as you suggested, they will not be showing when sellecting the Smoked category.

If I keep them in both categories (Smoked and Fixed shipping cost), when going to check out I have two shipping methods to choose from, and that does not work for me.

Thank you,

Jörgen

You have the option to EXCLUDE catagories from shipping, try that.

Thank you, I have installed the plugin and wrote the folowing set of rules:

Shipping cost 6€ for two specific products, which works fine
Name=Coste de envío fijo; "VAL" in SKUs; Shipping=6
Name=Coste de envío fijo; "LAL" in SKUs; Shipping=6

Shipping costs 0 for all other products, which does not work because when sellecting any product under this rule the cart says that no shipping method is selected, plesase select one, but there is no shipping method available for selection.
Name=Envío incluido; 13 in Categories; "VA" in SKUs; "LA" in SKUs; Shipping=0

I know the technical support for this plugin has been discontinued, so I don´t have anywhere else to ask to. Could you help, please? Thank you

Hard to tell what You have setup. Try shipping cost = 0,00001 or similar.
