Hi recently installed magento community 1.9.1 & about to go online...
I am selling configurable products where each sub-simple product has its own weight (shipping cost)
The weight of the simple products does not seem to be passed on to the configurable product so shipping cost is incorrect.
When I add-up enough items to reach shipping threshold I conclude that weight of the configurable product must be 1.000
Am I missing a configuration option ??? Can't find any issues like this explained on line so my guess is I am missing something here...
Thanks for any feedback you can give me !
First - let me try to understand what youre asking.
You have conf. products in you store, and you need to base the shipping calculation on the simple products of a conf. product.
Are you using standard Magento table rates ?
So if we have:
Conf. product A
Simple product AB
Simple product AB1
Simple product AB2
Conf. product B
Simple product BB
Simple product BB1
Simple product BB2
If the customer then adds AB1 + BB2 to the cart, then shipping calculation is wrong ?
Also the 1.000 you mention, looks like the 1.000 gr = 1 kilo setup ?
If you are using tablerates, then Magento should add up the weight of your conf. products ?
Hope this helps - else let me know
Thanks for the example, helps me in explaining my issue, I have not even tried several products yet...
To make things easy (actually set-up this way to try this out, theoretically this should work)
Configurable product A
Simple product AA (Small) = 1kg
Simple product AB (Medium) = 5kg
Simple product AC (Large) = 10kg
I wanted to see
Up to 4*AA show up shipping 1, above as shipping 2
Up to 5*AB show up shipping 2, up to 11*AB show up shipping 3, above as shipping 6
Up to 2*AC show up shipping 2, up to 5*AC show up shipping 3, above as shipping 6
so my table looks like this :
|Country||Region/State||Zip/Postal Code||Weight (and above)||Shipping Price|
The actual result is :
Up to 4*AA shows up shipping 1, above as shipping 2 (yay, that's what I wanted ;-)
Up to 4*AB also shows up shipping 1, up to 29 as shipping 2, up to 59 as shipping 3, 60 and above as shipping 6
Up to 4*AC also shows up shipping 1, up to 29 as shipping 2, up to 59 as shipping 3, 60 and above as shipping 6
I guess the configurable product is somewhere picking up a value of 1kg instead of the weight of the simple product...
Even if I change the weight of the individual simple products AA, AB and AC to whatever, no change...
Hope this helps out a little in understanding my question !
p.s. (this is not the actual real weight of the products but i needed a way to differentiate to ship small items, different envelope size to postpacks ;-)
