Hi all,

Im having real problems getting my shipping to calculate how I want it to, and wonder if anyone can help?

I basically have 3 shipping methods:

METHOD A
Up to 500g 2.54
500g to 750g 3.20
0.750 kilo to any weight up to 25 kilos 3.90, then each additional parcel up to 25 kilos + 3.90

METHOD B
Up to 500g 2.54
500g to 750g 3.20
750g to 1000g 3.90
1001g to 1250g 4.50
1250g to 1500g 5.50
1500g to any weight up to 25 kilos 5.95 then each additional parcel up to 25 kilos + 5.95

METHOD C
Up to 500g 2.54
500g to 750g 3.20
750g to 1000g 3.90
1001g to 1250g 4.50
1250g to 1500g 5.50
1500g to 2000g 6.50
2001g to 2500g 8.25
2500g to 4000g 8.50
4000g to any weight up to 25 kilos 8.95 then each additional parcel up to 25 kilos + 8.95

I have currently selected 'Weightrange' as my Shipping Calculation Method and entered the values as follows:

ID Shipping Method Base price Extra Cost Min Weight Max Weight Edit
1 Group A - First Class 2.54 0 499
6 Group A - First Class 3.2 500 749
7 Group A - Carrier 3.9 750 25000
8 Group B - First Class 2.54 0 499
9 Group B - First Class 3.2 500 749
10 Group B - First Class 3.9 750 999
11 Group B - First Class 4.5 1000 1249
12 Group B - First Class 5.5 1250 1499
13 Group B - Carrier 5.95 1500 25000
14 Group C - First Class 6.5 1501 1999
15 Group C - First Class 6.5 2000 2499
16 Group C - Parcel Force 8.5 2000 4000
17 Group C - Carrier 8.95 2500 25000

But when I check out with only 1 item with a weight of 300 in my shopping basket, it gives me the option to select between 7 different shipping methods (IDs 7, 1, 13, 8, 17, 14, 16)! If I then try to check out with say Shipping Method ID 16, I get a message saying:

The selected shipping method is invalid for your shipping country. Please click Back and select another country.

Please can anyone help?!! Thanks!
