Can anyone tell me if I am missing something here. Is there a way to have the shipping work as follows:

Order Value Percent Charged in Shipping
0 to $499 8%
$500 to $999 7%
$1000 to $2499 6%
and so on....

I know I can do this will a dollar value for shipping but I am really wanting to charge a specific percentage per order range.

I believe you can only set a variable fixed cost when using the "Price Range" shipping method. Alternatively you can use the Price Percent shipping method, however this doesn't offer the ranges you require. All orders will use the same percentage value.

One way around this may be to set up discount options for orders over certain values - ie for orders over 500 offer a discount of 1% and so on... Section 13.3 of the User Guide details Price Range discounts. This may however look a bit messy in the final cart summary as customers would see a separate line item for the discount and wonder how that applies to their order.

If you would like a quote to customize VPASP to add in an option for Price Range Percentage based shipping calculations feel free to get in touch with us at at http://creativechaos.com.au/contactus.htm
