How to set-up above certain weight get a quote
Hi, does anyone no a solution for my following problem.
I want to set-up this plug-in so that above a certain weight a customer gets a message that he need to get contact for a shipping quote.
So e.g. above a total of 10 pounds e.g. he cannot complete the order or he get a notice.
Maybe there is another option.
Sorry, I do apologise. I am quite new here and have missed that. Thanks anyway.
@creativeaffinity; still no clue. I contact the maker directly but no answer.
Oh, for me it was not impolite what you ask, but when that are the forum rules, than so be it. For me it could be helpful because this question gets more in the picture I guess 🙂
Thanks for the reminder @esmi and @damiaan. Anyway, again not sure if this is appropriate here (kindly delete please if unsuitable) but while I was trying to figure out a solution to this, I had a look at another plugin called APG Weight and Postcode/State/Country Shipping and tried on another site I am working on. I was trying to do the exact same thing and the closest I could get was getting a notification once the order was above my set max weight limit saying:
“There doesn‘t seem to be any available shipping methods. Please double check your address, or contact us if you need any help.”
Addendum: This notification is what customers see on checkout.
I think this will do for now, and the closest I could get anyway rather than having to have the same shipping rate charged to customers for the maximum weight and the overlimit.
Hope this is of any help.
Thank you @creativeaffinity. Looks promising the APG Weight plug-in. I will test it.
Oh, where did you enter the maximum shipping weight b.t.w.?
@damiaan van Vliet, I also did ask whether there’s a way to change the generated message so I can say to the effect that orders above my maximum limit cannot be processed and that customers should contact me for alternative shipping arrangements or ask for a quote. Developer had said that that message was Woocommerce generated so I would have to make the changes in my child theme.
Making a child theme and doing the changes from there seems rather complicated for a newby like me, so I guess I’ll take what’s there for now. 🙂 You might want to have a crack at it though. Best of luck to us!
Hi @creativeaffinity, where did you enter the maximum shipping weight b.t.w.?
And I will look into the error message, I can create themes and also child themes but don’t know if it is possible to change the message with a theme, but maybe…
Oh, found it in the plug-in settings; Overweight/over dimensions and remove the tick, I guess 🙂
Yep, it works pretty much like AWD since that plug-in is its precursor anyways. I didn’t make use of the postcodes and states, instead I had:
1500|891|C1 and so on.
I had 11 country groups and set the max weights there. Just make sure you untick Return the maximum price so it doesn’t calculate the shipping price on your maximum limit as the rate even for overweight. Customers then get the error message and cannot proceed to payment at check out.
Thanks, I already found it. First I thought it was the same notation than AWD but indeed a bit different but almost similar.
For another reader I will explain this example:
for country group 1, till 10Kg the price is 6.75
for country group 2, till 10Kg the price is 20
I am now puzzling on a solution for the error message and when I know I will write back.
That’s great. Glad it’s working out well for you so far.
An issue I encountered lately though is that everytime I type in countries that I specifically sell to under Sell to Specific Countries only in General Settings of Woocommerce, I lose them by the time I go back to complete and type in countries under my country groups in the APG settings. For the life of me, I have been typing and re-typing the countries and saving the changes in both General Settings and APG settings country groups. Is it just me having this issue? I am yet to send a note to the developers to see if this has anything to do with the plug-in or if it has to do with Woocommerce.
First, I would suggest create new topic for your question. Second, I will try it and come back to you.
I tried it but with me it works (WP 3.8.3, WooCommerce 2.1.7, plugin 184.108.40.206).
For example in my test environment, WooCommerce, Settings, General I have specific countries: Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg.
General, Shipping, APG shipping, settings C1 I have Netherlands, C2 I can choose Belgium, Luxembourg.
