SHIPPING: Set up shipping rules based on Weight & Location

In this video we will learn how to configure your Commerce Website so that the cost of shipping changes based on:

  1. The weight of an order
  2. The delivery postcode of an order

Download an excel spreadsheet of Australian Postcodes here.

To begin to configure your site’s shipping rules you need to come up with the formula and prices to start with. In this example, the formula is:

  • If we’re shipping a weighted item to WA, the price of shipping will be $66.
  • If we’re shipping a weighted item to Vic & SA, the price of shipping will be $33
  • Shipping a weighted item to all other states within Australia will be $22.

Before starting, we need 2 csv/excel files containing the postcodes that make up:

  1. Western Australia
  2. Victoria & South Australia

These can be downloaded via the above Australia Post website link.
