    Hello!

    I'm using option 5 for one of my sites.
    so in the codes each item has something like this

    <input type="hidden" name="units1" value="5" />

    I just added an item & the client wants only that item to be priced at $5.40 shipping per item

    anyone know what I need to add/edit in the units line of code to make this happen?

    thank you!

    here's a link to example page
    http://www.outdoortrailgear.com/featured/element-woodburning-stove/

    I could change it to drop downs if I had to.. more curious if i can change this line <input type="hidden" name="units1" value="5" /> to tell it to charge $5.40 shipping per item

    thank you!

    You appear to have a table with

    UNITS COST
    1 ____ 2 ___ multiply up to 1 unit by 2
    6 ____ 0.5 __ multiply any excess up to 6 by 0.5

    giving a maximum charge of 5. If you want higher charges you could change to

    UNITS COST
    1 ____ 2
    0 ____ 0
    Rest _ 0.5

    Now a units value of 7.80 would be charged 1*2+6.80*0.5 = $5.40.

    But if the order consisted of just two of this item, the units total would be 15.60 and the shipping charge 1*2+14.60*0.5 = 9.30. Is that what is required?

    If each one of these items is to be charged $5.40 I would be inclined to give the product a units value of 0 and to quote a product price inclusive of shipping.

    Unfortunately that doesn't solve the problem of shipping to two zones.

    Alan - thank you for the reply. I'm going to try 2 drop down boxes. Not sure if this is the best way to do this?

    http://www.outdoortrailgear.com/featured/element-woodburning-stove/

    However, I have 2 issues.
    1 - would prefer to remove the qty box when the item(s) go to cart only for these items - leaving the garbage pail there if customer wants to remove item(s)

    2 - again, not sure if I'm doing this the best way? I added check boxes w/ the dropdown.

    If I add the Titanium Item it works fine.
    If I check both boxes & select an option in both the drop downs it works fine

    BUT if I check only the 1st item "Element Stainless" when I go to the cart it shows 'Element Titanium" with no dollar amount.

    Anyone have suggestions on how to fix this form??

    thank you!

    back 1 more time before I call it a night...

    below is the old code I had when I made the last post using checkboxes

    <input name="qty1" type="checkbox" value="1" /><strong>ELEMENT 2.2 Stainless Steel Wood Stove $44.95</strong>
    Only 9.4 ounces(266 Grams)
    $5.40 shipping cost per stove (included in prices)
    <input type="hidden" name="product1" value="ELEMENT STAINLESS">
    <select name="productpr1">
    <option></option>
    <option value="QTY1-:50.35:0"> Element Stainless-QTY1 $50.35 </option>
    <option value="QTY2-:100.70:0">Element Stainless-QTY2 $100.70</option>
    <option value="QTY3-:151.05:0">Element Stainless-QTY3 $151.05</option>
    <option value="QTY4-:201.40:0">Element Stainless-QTY4 $201.40</option>
    </select>
    <br clear="all">
    <input name="qty2" type="checkbox" value="1" /><strong>ELEMENT 2.2 Titanium Wood Stove $54.95</strong>
    Only 4.8 Ounces(135 Grams)
    $5.40 shipping cost per stove (included in prices)
    <strong>Please note! Will start shipping end of June</strong>
    <input type="hidden" name="product2" value="ELEMENT TITANIUM">
    <input type="hidden" name="qty2" value="1">
    <select name="productpr2">
    <option></option>
    <option value="QTY1-:60.35:0"> Element Titanium-QTY1 $60.35 </option>
    <option value="QTY2-:120.70:0">Element Titanium-QTY2 $120.70</option>
    <option value="QTY3-:181.05:0">Element Titanium-QTY3 $181.05</option>
    <option value="QTY4-:241.40:0">Element Titanium-QTY4 $241.40</option>
    </select>

    ------------------------------

    then I tried this


    <strong>ELEMENT 2.2 Stainless Steel Wood Stove $44.95</strong>
    Only 9.4 ounces(266 Grams)
    $5.40 shipping cost per stove (included in prices)
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="product1" VALUE="ELEMENT STAINLESS">
    <SELECT name="qty1">
    <OPTION value="0" SELECTED >None</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="1">QTY 1</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="2">Qty 2</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="3">Qty 3</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="4">Qty 4</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="5">QTY 5</OPTION>
    </SELECT>
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="price1" VALUE="50.35">
    <input type="hidden" name="noqty1" value="3">
    <br>
    <strong>ELEMENT 2.2 Titanium Wood Stove $54.95</strong>
    Only 4.8 Ounces(135 Grams)
    $5.40 shipping cost per stove (included in prices)
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="product2" VALUE="Element Titanium">
    <SELECT name="qty2">
    <OPTION value="0" SELECTED >None</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="1">Qty 1</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="2">Qty 2</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="3">Qty 3</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="4">Qty 4</OPTION>
    <OPTION value="5">Qty 5</OPTION>
    </SELECT>
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="price2" VALUE="60.35">
    <input type="hidden" name="noqty2" value="3">


    ----------------------------

    see page for final result. Issue solved. the simplest solution. made units = 0 and merged the shipping price into each item :)
