Magento has a table rates shipping method that allow you to specify different shipping rates in the checkout. The table rates are working in combination with the Transsmart transporter profiles. In this way you can specify on the basis of the information below which transporter profiles can be shown in the checkout and you can configure different prices for each profile.
For the table rates and configuration of shipping rates, you can choose between the following criteria:
- Weight v. Destination
- Price v. Destination
- Number of Items v. Destination
In order to determine which carrier profile can be offered per line of table rates, you need to look up the ID codes of the transporter profiles. Log in to MyTranssmart, go to 'Manage account' and choose 'Booking profiles' in the menu. Here you will see a unique ID per carrier profile. In the example below this is D4U1, D4U2 etc.
Below is an example of a table rates configuration for the Netherlands, based on price vs. destination.
The table rate can be read as follows;
If your customer has a shipment to the Netherlands with an order value between 0 and 100 euro, your customer will see 1 transporter profile in the checkout:
- UPS1: UPS standard delivery for 4,95€
- Should the shipment have an order value of €100 or more, the customer will have free shipping.
Please note, table rates do not yet work with profiles for which a pick-up location has to be chosen. You can currently only use table rates with the delivery options.
