  • setting shipping options

    I kind of have a complicated shipping options. Can someone help me?

    For a few categories of items, shipping would be $9.99 for orders under $100. Orders over $100 would be free. However in other categories, the customer would have to call or email to get a shipping quote. Is there a way to do this? They can still check out their order but i want to be able to say "shipping fees will apply" or something to that affect.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    If you don't use weights for items, you can use that as a workaround.

    In other words, for the items that require you to call, set a weight of 100, and for all other items set a weight of 0. Then for your shipping methods select "Custom - by value" and configure it so that for values between $0.01 and $99.99, the shipping price is $9.99 and set "maximum weight" to 99. (and a second similar entry of free shipping for over $100 and weight under 99, assuming that's what you're going for)

    This will result in no valid shipping options being available for items $100 and up that are in the category.
