We also have this issue and is costing us sales on a daily basis. We really need this to be a native option. We are a florist who also sell other items and our customers end up paying the shipping rate for flowers and also the shipping rate for all other items.... This is nuts.
There must be another workaround.. For instance... can a discount be set up that equals the secondary shipping rate once a customer adds a second item to their cart?
Same problem here.
We have a rate for orders up to a set weight, and next size up flat rate $4.50. Then I have one for if a customer selects a product which is a liquid, and it has to be shipped in a box $8.-
If a customer selects and product, and a liquid, it will combine the two rates and create a shipping charge of $12.50. No good! What can I do to make it work in the mean time? Does anyone have any bright ideas please?
I definitely also need this feature.
For us it is not a matter of Price. It is a matter of choosing between different carriers with different services.
We sell furniture and accessories.
All accessories is sent with one carrier
But if you choose to buy furniture, then this needs to be sent with different carrier. And here you can choose to have the carrier "Carry-In" the product.
This works fine if you just select only furniture or accessories in the cart.
But if you choose to buy both accesories and furniture. Then it just says "Shipping" in checkout, and you cannot choose between carriers / services.
Here it should just show the carriers from "Custom Shipping Rates" in my opinion
This sounds like a work-around that I could try using.
Are you able to show how you implemented the condition for the cost as explained in your second paragraph?
Perhaps a screenshot or two?
Any help greatly appreciated!
