Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Calculation of extra shipping for oversize items

  • Resolved george18sa


    Pricing is based on the length and width of the artwork. However, courier companies has increased cost for items 49″ and over (on either side). So for larger items, I want to add a shipping surcharge.

    I am curious how to calculate this as a shipping class.I see that I can add a “flat rate” but I just want to add a certain amount when the dimensions go over 48″.

    Is this possible, either through shipping classes or some other price calculation.

  • Shipping class would work. You would want to set it up so that Calculation type is set to – Per class: Charge shipping for reach shipping class individually.

    I would do a flat cost then additional based on shipping class to make it easier.

    So all items would just get a general charge and require no change and only items/variable products 49+ would need to have that done.

    You can set shipping class on the variation level so you could say I have 1 item that comes in X, Y, Z and Z would have the increase in shipping.

    So example.

    $10 flat rate.
    Charge on items 49″+ 5 per item in the cart with that shipping class.

    So 2 items in the cart would be a total of 20 in shipping.

    Oh you mean a flat shipping rate? Because all items have shipping included but we are now forced to add a rate for oversize.

    So shipping will be flat rate of 0 unless one of the dimensions is over 48″.

    Where would I find “Calculation Type”? I’ve looked in settings and can’t find it.

    Thanks for your quick response!

    Ahhh.. I see, I have to add shipping zones first. What if I wanted to create a shipping zone called “everywhere”? Simple to do?

    The “everywhere else” shipping zone exists by default. Here’s an example from my test site:

    Does that clear things up for you?
