The Freight Tab



This section deals specifically with the component freight details.



The freight tab allows you to enter component freight details into the store. To change the freight details and countries that the store ships to, click the Wizard button. For information about the freight wizard, see the New Project section of the manual.

Changing Freight Details
To change the freight companies or methods, click the Methods button. You can then enter the desired freight details.

Entering Freight Details
For each country, you must either fill in the freight table to ship a package of 0.5 to 10 units of weight, or enter a set of advanced freight calculation rules. Click on a country name in the list to enter the shipping costs for the country. Enter the cost to deliver an item of less then 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 .... 10.0 units of weight to the country.The 11+ field should contain the cost to ship each additional unit of weight above 10.



Advanced Freight Rules
To add advanced freight rules, select the method type, then select a country or region from the drop down list.
Freight rules consist of 2 values and a comparison. A comparison B, where A is the dollar amount to be added to the freight and B is the weight of the order. The comparison operaters are:

Comparison Operator:Description:
<Less than
<=Less than or equal to
>Greater than
>=Greater than or equal to
!= or <>Not equal to


Note: There is no = (equals) operator

Example:
2.95<=1k

The freight costs $2.95 for 1k or less of weight.



More than one rule may be used for each country. Seperate rules by commas.

Example:
1.95<=0.5k,5<=1k

If the weight is under 0.5k, the cost is $1.95.
Else if the weight is under 1k, the cost is $5

-1 means that freight is not available.

Example:
1<=1k,2<=2k,-1>2k

$1 for 1k of weight, $2 for 2k of weight and no other weights are accepted to this destination.
