CFD Multi-Tiered Shipping For WooCommerce

Description

WordPress administrators can create a multi-tiered flat rate shipping
cost based on the total number of items in a WooCommerce cart. The
store administrator can choose to apply this shipping method to all
available countries or to specific countries.

This flexible shipping method provides up to 4 tiers, suitable for USPS
flat-rate boxes. Also provided are several large-order shipping cost
calculation methods for refining your total shipping costs calculations.

By default there are four tiers; 1, 2, 3, 4 – small to large. Tiers 3
and 4 may be disabled if not needed.

Examples

One of the following examples may help you determine how best to
configure the settings to get the results you require. Once you have
saved your settings, be sure to look at the review table at the bottom
of the settings page to confirm that your settings are calculating the
shipping costs as anticipated.

Example 1

  • Default 4-Tier shipping method (all tiers enabled; suitable for USPS flat-rate)
  • Base cost: $0.00 (default)
  • Large Order Shipping Cost Calculation Method: prorate
   Tier|Max Qty| Cost 
   ----+-------+------
     1 |    2  |$ 5.95
     2 |    4  |$12.65
     3 |   10  |$15.90
     4 |   15  |$17.90
    pro|  each |$ 1.12

Results

  • Shipping cost for 5 items = $15.90.
  • Shipping cost for 12 items = $17.90.
  • Shipping cost for 20 items = $17.90 + 5 x $1.12. Total cost is $23.50.

Example 2

  • Custom 3-Tier shipping method (tier 4 disabled)
  • Base cost: $0.00 (default)
  • Large Order Shipping Cost Calculation Method: prorate
  Tier|Max Qty| Cost
  ----+-------+------
    1 |   10  |$ 7.00
    2 |   40  |$21.00
    3 |  160  |$42.00
    4 |   disabled
   pro|  each |$ 2.00

Results

  • Shipping cost for 35 items = $21.00.
  • Shipping cost for 120 items = $42.00.
  • Prorated shipping cost for 200 items = $42.00 + 40 x $2.00. Total cost is $122.00.

Note

  • Disabling tier 3 and enabling tier 4 works results in exactly the same cost calculations.

Example 3

  • Default 4-Tier shipping method with free shipping for large orders.
  • Base cost: $2.00
  • Large Order Shipping Cost Calculation Method: prorate
  Tier|Max Qty| Cost
  ----+-------+------
    1 |   15  |$ 5.00
    2 |   30  |$10.00
    3 |   45  |$15.00
    4 |   60  |$20.00
   pro|  each |$ 0.00  < -- Large orders are free!!!

Results

  • Shipping cost for 10 items = $ 5.00 + $2.00. Total cost is $ 7.00 including $2.00 base cost.
  • Shipping cost for 50 items = $20.00 + $2.00. Total cost is $22.00 including $2.00 base cost.
  • Shipping is free for orders greater than 60 items.

Reviews

Appears in checkout even if deactivated

I installed this plugin to test it but didn’t use it at the end (it seems to work well). I deactivated the plugin to keep it aside. Today I had a sell from the website and even if this plugin was deactivated, I discover today the settings are still visible in the woocommerce>shipping setting zone. And worse, the plugin shipping method was visible on the front end checkout page.
A client select it to order a product…annoying.

Setting multiple rules

I have searched high and low for a solution to my problem and this plugin seems like it does exactly what I want (well, nearly)

The situation is I need 2 postage options, 1st class and next day delivery so it needs to work like this (using dummy shipping costs and quantities):

1st Class
1-5 items – £5.00
6-10 items – £10.00
11.15 items – £15.00
16-20 items – £20.00

Next day delivery
1-5 items – £15.00
6-10 items – £20.00
11.15 items – £25.00
16-20 items – £30.00

The above is for UK only, but the same 2 groups of rules need applying to EU and ROW too.

Your plugin only appears to show one lot of options so if I only offered 1st class and an option and only shipped to the UK then it would be perfect.

I can’t see a way of doing the above, am I missing something or is that not possible with this plugin?
