    Hello!

    Is there a way to use an SKU code to set the shipping amount?

    Basically we sell two types of product.
    If type 1 is in the basket we want to add a flat 2.50 shipping fee.
    If type 1 and type 2 are both in the basket we also want to add the 2.50 shipping fee.
    If just type 2 is in the basket we want shipping to be 0.00

    Is there a way to do this with an SKU code, or is there a better way?
    Can anyone help?!

    Many thanks!

    You could give type 1 products a units value of 1.

    Then use standard shipping option 7, say, with table

    UNITS COST
    1 ____ 2.50

    Either specify or default type 2 to a units value of 0.

    Alan Hi, many thanks for your help! SORTED.

    Another question - is there a way to send different confirmation emails depending on the type of product ordered?

    Or would that involve setting up two different carts?

    Thanks again!

    Tom.

    You could probably do it with HTML call instead of Mal's regular confirmations but that is out of my league.
