How to select css selector for discount ribbon and offer countdown in X-Discount

As you know opencart has many themes on the marketplace and it is quite impossible to add predefined patches to all available templates. By X-Discount’s offer countdown and discount, the ribbon has been configured for the default theme. But it is possible to show countdown and ribbon on any theme. The Ribbon & Countdown Setting tab of the X-Discount module allows you to defined your own CSS selector where the ribbon or countdown will have appeared.

Let me show you how to find the selector using the chrome debugging tool. Let’s assume you want to place a ribbon on the product listing page. To do so, please navigate to any product listing page. Then click the mouse right button over any product box and then click the Inspect option. It will show up chrome debugging tool. Now find out a CSS Class that must be unique so it can be used to differentiate product boxes across the page. For example, for the default theme CSS selector .product-layout is unique.

Selector for the Product Box in default theme

Once you choose the selector for the product box, you will have to find out a selector where the X-discount actually put the ribbon in. For example, in the default theme, it could be .product-thumb .image

Selector for ribbon in the listing page

Similarly, you can get your selector for the details. Note in the detail page, the countdown would be placed before the given selector. For example, in the default theme, the selector #product could be a good choice.

However, if you have any problem getting your selector, don’t hesitate to request support. Have a good day!

How does Cumulative Price work in XShippingpro?

If you set final cost to Cumulative,  xshippingpro will sup up cost of all unit rows and even applicable Additional Price. Let look into following setting:

Before continue into further lets discuss two things.

How doesXshippingpro calculate Per Unit Cost?
If you noticed, I have entered Per Unit Block is 1 for the second unit row.  Since cost is defined $2 to that row. So each block cost would be $2. Lets calculate how may blocks out there.
Start: 10.1
End: 20
So Total blocks:  (End – Start) / Per Unit Block = (20 -10.1) / 1 = 9.9 i.e Round value: 10
( One thing is worth to inform that Xshippingpro would not round if you would have set Allow Partial is Yes )
Therefore, Total Cost: 10  x $2 = $20
How does Xshippingpro calculate Additional Price?
If xshippingpro find a match among the unit ranges, it will not move forward to Additional Price. But if there no proper matching is found, xshippingpro will move ahead to Additional Price rule and try to calculate shipping cost depending on its value.
By default, xshippingpro calculate additional cost per 1 Unit e.g 1 KG in this case (or whatever Rate Type you defined. If you define Rate type is Quantity, then Per 1 Item) basis unless you define Per Unit Block in the last unit row.
For example, there is no Per Unit Block  defined to the last unit range row. So additional price will be calculated for per 1 KG since Rate type is Weight. Lets say Additional Price is $10, that means cost for every KG is $10
If there was Per Unit block defined to the last unit range row, it would calculate additional price per Per Unit block basis. For example, if it was defined 2, additional price would calculate per 2 KG.  Lets say Additional Price is $10, that means cost for every 2KG is $10

Let’s proceed to main discussion. Lets say we have cart weight 60KG so what would the final shipping cost according to above setting?

1.  First row:  $5
2.  Second row:  $20      (No of blocks: 10 and Cost per block: $2 ,Therefore, 10 x $2 = $20 )
3.  Third row:  $20
Yes, we have still some weight 10KG pending to be calculated  even after all unit rows are done. Because our last row’s upper limit is 50KG but our cart weight is 60KG
4. Additional Shipping Cost: $50   ( Additional Price $5 and we have 10KG to be calculated per 1 KG basis)
Since Final Price cumulative so lets sum up item 1 to 4: ( $5 +$20 + $20 + $50) = $95
Therefore, Final shipping cost for 50KG weight would be $95
