Accepting credit cards, warehouses, and shipping and fulfilling orders
I've got a bit of an issue with my store basically we sell two main type of products:
Custom Gaming Pcs - The delivery options for these are for example Express Build Time & Delivery £30.
Normal products that follow the same shipping structure - Standard, Express and free shipping x amount
The only problem is when someone adds a custom gaming PC to the checkout and another item for example a laptop, it cannot combine shipping rates. Is there anyway around this? The only thing I can think off is if there is an app that at checkout it would split it into two seperate orders, so the customer can select shipping for one of those orders.
This is what happens currently -
This is for a Custom Gaming PC
This is for a normal item such as a laptop :
This can be accomplished in (3) ways..
First, you could simply create a new Location in your Shopify settings, and, stock the computer item at it. Then, Shopify will stack the shipping rates at checkout for a mixed cart.
Second is to create a separate Shipping Profile for the computer item - again the rates [should] stack at checkout for a mixed cart.
Third (if adding a location or shipping profile negatively affects other things) is to simply add to the price of the computer to cover the extra handling you provide, and, use an App like SplitOrder to have the computer automatically split into a separate fulfillment request if the cart is mixed.
Disclaimer, we are the creators of SplitOrder!
Anyway, hope that helps
