Weight based shipping with free shipping option using xshipppingpro

Hi,
can you please help me with configuration of plugin?

I have weight type of shipping in 7 weight ranges and i need to implement also the free shipping when the total price of cart or order is more than 50 € and under 10kg?! Is something like this possible?

Thank you very much

Hi

Thanks for contacting.
For achieving your scenario, you need two shipping methods. One for weight based and another for Free shipping. Since we don’t want to show Weight based shipping if free shipping is available during checkout, so we need to use group mode for that.
So please go to Global setting -> Group Option in xshippingpro. Now Select Group1 is Lowest
Now lets make first method for weight based.
Weight Based Shipping
——————————
1. Create a new method and give it a name
2. Under General Tab, Select Group is Group1
3. Under Price Setting tab, Select Rate type is weight
4. Now Enter your unit ranges. For example:
Start       End          Cost          Per Unit Block      Allow Partial
0              10             $$                  0                          NO
10            20             $$                 0                           NO
and so on. Here $$ means shipping price for the respective ranges
Free Shipping
———————
1. Create another method and give it a name
2. Under General Tab, Select Group is Group1
3. Under Price Setting tab, Select Rate type is Total
4. Now Enter following unit ranges.
Start       End          Cost          Per Unit Block      Allow Partial
50        999999           0                  0                          NO
5. Under Other tab, Enter Weight range  0 to 10

    Hi,
    Please help me to configure this shipping extension.

    My products are shipped from two locations. Most of the light weight items are shipped from australia (local) and and bulky items are shipped from overseas (international). I am having problem with setting up shipping fees for the sceniro when a buyer purchases both of these items together.

    For example if a buyer purchases a product “A” that is shipped from overseas (by aramex courier) with a shipping fee of $40 and the product “B” shipped from australia (by australia post) with the shipping fee of $8. The total shipping fee comes to $48 but i want to offer 25% shipping fee discount only on product “B”. which makes the total shipping fee $46. How to achieve this from this extension.

    Thank you very much

    Hi Samir,

    Thanks for your quick response. 25% discount only available when someone combines with products those are shipped from overseas. In above example, 25% discount is available only if combined with product “A”. but if combined with the other products that is shipped from australia, i do not want to give discount but i want the weight based rate will apply on these products shipment.

    Also when I updated x-shipping pro to latest version, some of the functionality in my site is not working. Shipping calculator which i have installed in each product page for example.
    Thanks
