Apply Surcharge on Shipping when Minimum Order not Met
I ran into a problem recently when wanting to change customers a handling fee of $12 if they did not meet the minimum order limit of $100. The answer was to always have a $12 handling fee, but then give a $12 discount if the order minimum was met.
This is what worked for me:
Shipping Method Settings: Flat Rate - Enabled Title - UPS Ground (Will be $0 at time of sale if order minimum has been met) Type - Per Order Price - 12 Sort Order - 1
UPS - Enabled Allowed Methods - Anything but Ground Free Shipping with Minimum Order Amount - Disabled Sort Order - 2
Rule Settings: Rule Information Rule Name - Minimum Order Limit Met Description - Order is less than minimum, so a flat rate shipping charge will be applied Conditions If ALL of these conditions are TRUE : Subtotal equals or greater than 100 Actions Apply - Fixed amount discount for whole cart Discount Amount - 12 Apply to Shipping Amount - Yes
