Store Delivery Messages

In this section, you're able to internationalize the delivery message.

By clicking on 'Save' button you can:

Calculation Settings

You can find it in STORES → CONFIGURATION → AITOC EXTENSIONS → SHIPPING RATES.

Zip Codes Comparison Method

To specify the area where a rate is applicable, just use a postal code range as shown here:

Furthermore, Shipping Table Rates has 2 methods of processing postal codes. When you set postcode ranges, you can configure the extension comparison method as Numeric or as String:

If you’re located in a country that uses numeric postal codes (like the USA) it’s better to choose Numeric Comparison Method. If postal codes include letters as well, you should use the String Comparison Method. This option allows you to use ' % ' (wildcard) and ' _ ' in a postal code wording:

  • % - any number of any characters
  • _ - any one character

For example, the expression “777%777” covers such postal codes as “7771777”, “777AB1777”, and “777ABAB777”. If you put the percent sign at the beginning or at the end of your expression (“777%” or “%777”), you precise that a postal code can start or end with any number or letter.

Weight Calculation Approach

It's used in Price by Weight Unit and Cart Weight Rate settings.

There are 2 calculation approaches: Standard Weight Attribute(kg, lb) and Billable Weight. The Billable Weight (Length x Width x Height/5000), which is also called dimensional weight), is greater than the Actual Weight (and volumetric weight) of the package and will be used for rates calculations.

Dimensional Weight Source

Also, you can choose the way of calculating a shipping rate based on a volumetric weight.

When choosing the Volume attribute option, the volumetric weight will be calculated based on the item's volume and shipping factor. You need to create a volume attribute, specify its value for the items and also set a shipping factor. Usually a factor of 139(in/lb) is used for the imperial system and a factor of 5000(cm/kg) — for the metric system.

To make the volumetric weight to be calculated based on the item's dimensions, you're able to choose the Dimensions Attributes option. To apply this option, you need to create a dimension attribute, specify its value for the items and determine the shipping factor.

And the last one is the option of the Aitoc Dimensional Shipping Extension.

If the Aitoc Dimensional Shipping is not installed or disabled — then the Standard Weight Attribute Approach will be used.

Both After Discount and Include Tax fields are used in Cart Item Total Price Rate condition setting.

Moreover, you can choose Don't Count Free Shipping Items option. It's used in Cart Item Total Price, Cart Weight & Cart Item Qty Rate condition settings. If Yes — weight, qty & price of free shipping cart items will be ignored.

After completing all the settings, don't forget to .

Examples

Here we will show you how it will look both on the Backend and on the Frontend pages.

Elementary Example

At the first example, the 'Cool Carrier' contains 'Next Day Delivery' shipping method. The Backend part of settings will look like this:

This method doesn't take advantage of rates functionality, therefore, the Rates Mediation setting is not used in this particular case. For this reason, the Use Even if no Rates setting is enabled.

In Conditions of the method several Regions are selected (District of Columbia, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Vermont ).

Also, the Base Price is indicated in the amount of $30.

Let's have a look on the Frontend page (view in the Cart):

Complicated Example: with Rates

In this case, the 'Cool Carrier' contains 'Air Flight — {delivery_message} business day(s)' shipping method with some Associated Shipping Rates. The Backend part of settings will look like this:

Sum ALL Rates is used in the Rates Mediation setting in this example. For this reason, the Use Even if no Rates setting is disabled.

Also, the Base Price is indicated in the amount of $50.

Moreover, in the Rate settings the Base Amount ($40) and the Price by Weight Unit ($1 for each Unit of Weight) are configured. In Conditions of the rate we chose Canada in the Countries field.

This is how the mentioned settings will be displayed on the grid:

Finally, it will be counted as $50 comes from Base Amount + $40 from Canada rate + $11 (10+1) per unit of weight (item's weight here is 1 lbs) = $101.00

Let's have a look on the Frontend page (view in the Cart):
