Shipping cost

Hello,

 

I have a probleme in setting up the shipping cost in my store. This because with prestashop you can only choose different prices based on the weight of the product but I have product that are not really heavy but are big, so I'm going to pay more for the shipping cost.

 

Example: I have a chair that is 15KG but I pay the shipping cost for 65KG because of the dimension. The price from most of the couriers are calculetad like this: Weight = width (meters) x height (meters) x depth (meters) x 200. If this exceeds the real weight is the one that applies.

 

There is some module or some other way to do this?

 

thank you

Hi,

 

You can use the module Attribute Wizard to set a price to these proprities only if shipping is required.

 

Can you explain?

If you mean to change the attributes of my products I have already set the dimensions for everyone

 

Why not just use a real time shipping module that retrieves shipping costs by sending FexEx / UPS the weight and dimensions of an order?

 

I'd recommend Presto-Changeo -- I use their FedEx module and it works great.

 

I'm based in UK and I don't use fedex. I use UPS, TNT, SEUR, DACHSER or DHL  depending on the country of delivery and the weight

Can you not pre-calculate the volumetric weight and set that as the actual weight?

 

I can but I have around 20.000 products so do it manually will be impossible.

The correct way will be to tell prestashop to do width (meters) x height (meters) x depth (meters) x 200 and if this exceeds the weight use this one as value

The "correct" way is the way that works. If it is not possble to do what you want then you have to consider another way

 

Anyway, a quick google brought this up:

 

http://addons.prestashop.com/en/8827-dimensional-weight.html

 

Or perhaps this: https://www.kahanit.com/product/table-rate-shipping-prestashop-shipping-by-zip-code-module

Thank you, the first link seems what I was looking for.

I want to clarify that before asking here I chatted with the customer service of prestashop and they told me that there was nothing like this.

I am not sure, but I think customer service (live chat) on prestashop addons are a bought in service with scripts. I don't believe they know the product at all

 

The modules I listed are not created by prestashop so best to talk to the developers of those modules on their module pages.
