[resolved] [Plugin: WP e-Commerce] Different shipping flat rate for each variation (4 posts)

    I have 2 variations on each product.
    For the first, local shipping is 6, international is 10.
    For the other local is 12, international is 20.
    How can I represent this? I thought the Variations table on the Product page had a column for shipping but was mistaken, you can only set shipping for the specific product in general,not for the variations of the product.
    Any help is much appreciated!

    Okay, so I found that there is a "Set variation shipping" link under each variation when you set up a Product. Clicking this link allows you to set up shipping costs for each variation.
    One thing to note though is that this value is added to whatever you entered as the Base Shipping in the Store Settings for Shipping. So to get an accurate shipping cost in my example above, I made the Base Shipping for everything be the minimal cost of 6 and 10 (the unstretched cost). Then for each Stretched Variation I set the shipping to 6 for local and 10 for international. So this totals up on the checkout page to 12 and 20, just as required. Sweet!
    Another point to note is when you purchase 2 or more items, the shipping cost of the specific variation is what gets added on. So, for e.g.
    1 stretched item = 12 shipping cost
    2 stretched items = 18 shipping cost
    4 stretched items = 24 shipping cost and so on.

    Hope this is helpful to someone.

    I am looking for how to set the shipping cost for a product (all variations) to be a specific amount.

    I have set the store to flat rate and set shipping to 0.00 for all zones so that I could add shipping on a per product basis. Then I added the shipping on the product page, but shipping never shows in the checkout cart.

    I know I must be missing something simple.

    Please help me to sort out this issue.

    Get 2 different Shipping cost for each product.

    1. Normal shipping
    2. Special Shipping (inclusive a guy who helps)

    Is there any appropriate plugins are available for that


    Thanks in advance.
