Guys, I wanna offer a suggestion that to me seems extremely obvious. Maybe there's a reason why this hasn't been done, maybe I'm offering a revelation.
I'm absolutely fed up with trying to figure out shipping for my pod products on my store. I use Printify and, unlike Printful, they don't just automatically insert their entire catalog's shipping rates into people's stores.
So right now Shopify users have two options: price based rates and weight based rates.
Why in the flip is there no option for quantity based rates?
Choose a product, then be taken to that product's shipping rate page.
Choose the rate for 1 item
Choose the rate for 2 items
Choose the rate for 3 items
And so on. Boom. Simple as hell. Let me rewrite that as if it's a shirt.
Choose the shirt. Now I'm at the shirt's shipping rate page.
1 shirt - $4
2 shirts - $6
3 shirts - $8
Can someone PLEASE make a quantity-based rate?
I made this post in another area, but I don't know if it was the best area for it. I'm reposting here too.
Shopify has weight and product based shipping options because they fill the needs of most merchants. It's highly unlikely they will ever offer quantity-based native to the platform, especially with the release of Shipping Profiles. With profiles, anytime you have more than 1 shipping profile, tiered shipping rates will never calculate properly. This is because they do their calculations based on the cart as soon as a tiered shipping option is added to a profile. Quantity calculations simply wouldn't function properly in the platform.
Intuitive Shipping does quantity based calculations and we are currently offering a starter plan to help newer stores. We're happy to help you get set up if you're open to using an app to charge properly for shipping.
