Very unique problem, Please help?
« on: December 23, 2010, 22:42:43 pm »
Hi,

I'm currently in China and I want to be able to have a flat rate shipping
for my item. So in the "Product Status" menu, I have created an attribute
for shipping and added a property and put in the amount I would like to
charge as a flat fee for shipping. The problem is if the customer orders 2
of the same item, he gets charged double shipping for that item.

I want to be able to have my site charge shipping only one time
after they select which country they are shipping to.

I hope you can understand what my problem is and lead me to some resolution to my problem.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Sincerely,
Madscience.

So in your solution, the shipping is added to the product price itself? What shipping module are you using, or are you skipping the shipping selection step?

I would think you would need a custom shipping module to determine the shipping attribute, keep a list of which products/shipping attributes have already been accounted, and only account for each unique shipping attribute once.
