shipping fees based on number of items option

Cindy Foster 6 years ago • updated by Eric - Branch CMS 6 years ago 1

I can only see three ways of calculating shipping fees: flat rate, price, weight. Because I want to charge based on the number of items, the only way I could see to do that is to assign a value of 1.0 to the weight of each item that counts towards the shipping fee. Is there another or better way?

Cindy, thank you for adding this request, however, we cannot come up with a good reason why a merchant would want to calculate shipping based on the number of items in the cart. In most cases those items would have different sizes and weights and the shipping costs would almost always be incorrectly calculated. For that reason we are going to close this request.
