Complex Shipping in ASPDotNetStorefront

Filed under: Web Content Pages — Tags: , — Webopius @ 7:15 pm

ASPDotNetStorefront has many different ways for you to set shipping by order total, order weight, fixed shipping prices or percentages of the total.

Recently, some of our clients have been asking for more complex shipping solutions, for example, where shipping restrictions need to be implemented or when one particular product triggers an additional shipping cost.

During the past month, we have implemented the following shipping solutions in ASPDotNetStorefront MLv9 (but the same changes should also be possible in v7 and v8):

– Shipping costs that vary by product type
– Additional shipping costs for specific products
– Restricted shipping for certain products (e.g. product x cannot be shipped to country y)
– Shipping method restrictions (e.g. product x cannot be shipped via Air)

At checkout, the Customer is shown a clear description of their shipping costs along with any rules that have applied to their cart. They have the choice of adjusting the cart at this stage to alter the shipping costs applied.

If your business has a requirement for more complex shipping solutions than provided in the standard ASPDotNetStorefront installation, then get in touch and Webopius will be able to discuss your specific requirements.
