I need help with specifically setting up shipping methods and rates for two types of products:
1) Print-on-demand items from Company: Company uses flat rate shipping, but the amount charged for flat rate shipping is different for each of the printed products. The flat rate shipping also increases by a certain amount for each additional item ordered.
2) Handmade products that I will pack and ship directly from my home: I'd prefer to have this calculated based on the weight of the product(s) + packaging + empty box, and of course the customer's location. I need the customer to be able to choose the shipping method and carrier. (USPS Priority/USPS Express, or UPS Ground/UPS Overnight/UPS 2 Day)
So here is what I'd like to accomplish:
A. If a customer orders a print-on-demand item as well as a handmade product, they will of course ship separately. However, I need the customer to still have the ability to choose their shipping method and carrier for the handmade product. Upon checkout, I would like my store to display the flat rate shipping for the POD product as well as the shipping options for the handmade items.
B. If a customer orders two handmade items, I need the shipping to be calculated only by the total weight of the handmade items.
C. I would like the flat rate shipping for the POD items to increase by a set amount depending on the quantity of items ordered.
D. If a customer orders multiple POD items, each with different flat shipping rates, I need Shopify to add the corresponding flat rates for each type of item together plus any additional rates for additional quantities of each item.
I've already read through all the pages on how to set up shipping and custom profiles, so please don't just link me to a general page. I need someone to walk me through exactly how to set up these profiles in my store. However, if these parameters exceed a Basic Shopify account's abilities, feel free to let me know and I will look into hiring a developer. Thank you in advance!!
