WooCommerce E-Commerce Bundle Rate Shipping
The WooCommerce E-Commerce Bundle Rate Shipping Plugin allows you to provide special bundled shipping rates when a customer purchases multiple items.
The plugin is designed to be flexible, so you can define bundled shipping rates based on the shipping destination, the categories of the products being sold, or their shipping class.
You can also add additional layers for each category, adding a degree of complexity that you may find suitable for your store’s situation. For example, if you sell books, you could charge $5 for the first book, $2 for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th books, and nothing for any additional books purchased.
You can add as many layers as you like.
1. Basic example
Jane’s shop sells books, DVDs and CDs. Her shipping rates are configured as follows:
- Books: $5 for the first book, $2 for every book thereafter.
- DVDs: $4 for the first DVD, $1 for every DVD thereafter.
- CDs: $4 for the first CD, $1 for every CD thereafter.
In this case, if a customer were to purchase two books, their shipping cost would be $7 ($5 for the first book, $2 for the second book).
If another customer were to order 4 DVDs, their shipping cost would be $7 ($4 for the first DVD, $1 each for the other three).
2. Free shipping after 4 products
Bill’s shop sells books. He charges $4 for shipping if the customer purchases 1-3 books, and offers free shipping when the customer purchases 4 or more books. Here’s how he configured his shipping rates:
- 1st item: $4
- 2nd – 3rd item: $0
- 4th item: $-4
- Subsequent books: $0
3. Using shipping classes
Helen’s shop sells beer. It is sold either by the box of 24 bottles, or by a case of 6. To define her rates, she uses two shipping classes: Box of 24, and Case of 6. Her rates look like this:
- Box of 24: $12 for the first box, $6 for every box thereafter
- Case of 6: $8 for the first case, $4 for every case thereafter
