Shopping freight costs calculationAuthor: John S.
Among other things, it would be good if the calculation of freight costs could be more flexible.
A suggestion for that is to combine the order-total and the weight.
We could keep the present options and then have an extra, that is a combination. If this extra is checked only that should be used.
How should it function? You should tie the order-cost and weight together in lines.
A line should contain:
from weight to weight from order-total to order-total freight price
A setting could be:
>= 0 <= 2 >= 0 <= 400 >= 10 EURO
>= 0 <= 2 >= 401 <= 1000 >= 5 EURO
>= 2.1 <= 10 >= 0 <= 400 >= 15 EURO
>= 2.1 <= 10 >= 401 <= 1000 >= 10 EURO
>= <= >= 1001 <= >= 0 EURO
It should be so that the first line that meets all criterias is used. This way it will be possible to specify that if the weight is over 2 kg (but lower than 10 kg.) and the order-amount is between 400 and 1000, then the freight will be 10 EURO.
If the order-amount is over 1000 EURO, then the freight will be 0 (free) no matter the weight.
This will give a very flexible freight calculation.
