Hi Dimitri,

Your mean the one from webshopapps?

Totally agreed, as it makes handling complex rules for website shipping a lot easier.

That’s the one Matt. We simply couldn’t configure shipping options the way we wanted using Magento‘s built-in options.

Hi Dimitri,

Yea, had the same problem with 3 site builds earlier this year, they all have that extension.

I’ll see if I can get one of the developers on for the guide on how to design a magento store on a budget of $90 which comes out in Jan/Feb :)

Totally agree with this extension, I have it installed and works nicely. Able to setup shipping rates in a csv file

Hi Brian

Is this for use with your Magento website? We have got the structure largely nailed for the Magento website guides and matrix shipping tables are in the list!

Would like to see a guid on this on how to setup not just uk shipping rates, but EU ones as well.

Had a customer from France click on or FREE shipping for their order, we only have free shipping for the UK

Hi Calum,

Great suggestion and we will be covering maxirates tables as they’re “the nuts” for magento shipping rules.

Thanks Matt

I have got it setup now for France, Italy and Germany, though may remove Germany. And it appears to be working correctly when i enter the country. The correct postage method is shown, this way EU members cannot select the free uk postage option now.

It was fairly straight forward, though still having the guides available will be another great addition.

And using the free matrix rates from webshopapps works perfectly

Hi, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would like to use the matrixrates table for my e-bay rates. Is it possible to ask Magento to use these settings?

Thank you

Hi Suzi,

Sorry, I haven’t tried using this for eBay rates myself. It does a number of things, but I believe using this for Ebay rates is an exception

Thanks,
Badeth

Hi,

is there a possibility to filter using SKU?

We ship free to germany, but want to exclude certain products. We can’t use just the weight rules.

How it looks now:
Country,State,City,Zip/Postal Code,Zip to,Weight from,Weight to,Price from,Price to,Item from,Item to,Shipping price,Algorithm,Delivery Type,Sort order
DEU,*,*,*,*,1,1999,150,*,*,*,0,*,DPD Paketversand. versandkosten für 1 Paket,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,1,1999,*,*,*,*,6.95,*,DPD Paketversand. versandkosten für 1 Paket,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,2000,2999,*,*,*,*,13,*,Versand für 2 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,3000,3999,*,*,*,*,18.5,*,Versand für 3 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,4000,4999,*,*,*,*,25,*,Versand für 4 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,5000,5999,*,*,*,*,31.5,*,Versand für 5 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,6000,6999,*,*,*,*,38,*,Versand für 6 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,7000,7999,*,*,*,*,44.5,*,Versand für 7 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*
DEU,*,*,*,*,8000,8999,*,*,*,*,51,*,Versand für 8 Pakete wegen Größe oder Gewicht,*

Now we want to exclude a product that costs more than 150 Euro, but weighs less than 2000, but needs to be shipped via forwarding company.
We also want to give certain products extra delivery costs, because they need to be send on a pallet.

Can somebody help?

Greetings
Elena

Hi Elena,

I personally haven’t set rules up with this complexity in Matrix rates.

Does anyone else have some insight to help Elena out here?

Hi Dave,

thanks for trying.

@dimitri:

We already have Premium Matrix Rates. But it seems not to be possible to use really complex shipping rules.

Is manipulating weight data an option?

Say, a product that costs more than 150 Euro, but weighs less than 2000 – give it a weight of, i dunno… 5000 (smth unique), then in your spreadsheet make a rule

Country,State,City,Zip/Postal Code,Zip to,Weight from,Weight to,Price from,Price to,Item from,Item to,Shipping price,Algorithm,Delivery Type,Sort order
DEU,*,*,*,*,5000,5000,150,*,*,*,0,*,Your Forwarding company service,*

It’s a workaround but I can see how that can work. You will rarely find a solution that suits your setup perfectly out of the box.

Hi Dimitri,

that’s the way we wrote it about 2 Weeks ago. It seems to work with most products, but is absolutly not the perfect solution. We will use it until we found a better option.
We only used it for about 30 products, which are really expensive to ship.
