This plugin can be used with any other Australian Shipping plugins that we have created.
Shipping Rates are added MANUALLY into the plugin
The Base Price and Price Per KG need to be added ‘manually’ into the Toll Ipec/ Table Rate admin area. These units ( Base Price and Price Per KG ) need to be supplied from Toll Ipec/ eParcel, a Toll Ipec /eParcel account is a requirement.
You can also use this plugin for any Australian shipping company if you have been provided the shipping rates via a document, these rates can then be added into the plugin manually for certain regions.
You can also use this plugin for setting up local Australian shipping rates, just add in your base price per region.
SET UP A WEIGHT LIMIT REQUIREMENT FOR THIS PLUGIN – ENTER THE WEIGHT ’22 KG’ ANY SHIPMENT GREATER THAN 22 KG THE RATES WILL BE OFFERED.
You can also set up a weight limit, lets’s say you are using our WooCommerce Australia Post plugin and the maximum weight Australia Post will ship is 22 kg.
In the Toll Ipec admin area, you can enter 22 kg, this would mean that anything under 22 kg, the Toll Ipec shipping quote will not be offered at the checkout.
Shipping rates will only be offered if the total weight of the shipment is over 22kg.
This plugin could also be used to offer Australia Post eParcel rates onto your website.
REGIONS IN THE PLUGIN:
The WooCommerce TollIPEC plugin can be used for any shipping company within Austalia, if your shipping company has provided you with a base rate and a rate per every 1 kg, these can be entered manually into the plugin.
A shipping company will provide you with a ‘Quote Form’ .csv, .xls, .xlsx file, which can be used as a reference to enter the prices into the WooCommerce TollIPEC plugin. We have used the same region abbreviation in our plugin to make the referencing easy. Example HRNSW for Hunter Region New South Wales.
The region post codes have all been created already in the plugin. We have already done the long data entry task.
The default shipping service name(Title) is ‘Toll IPEC Shipping’, this can be changed to suit your shipping company.
- You can set up a maximum weight for the plugin, no shipping rates will be offered if the shipment does not fit into the maximum weight criteria.
- The ability to set up a Mark Up and Fuel Surcharge. ( These are flat fees )
- Add in your Toll Ipec/eParcel base rate
- Add in your Toll Ipec /eParcel rate per kg
HOW ARE THE RATES PROVIDED?
Let’s use the ‘Melbourne Zone 1 VIC’ as an example.
The Base rate is set up as $10.00
The rate per every 1 kg is set to $1.00
The product we will use in the example has a weight set up as 4 kg.
Base rate $10.00
Price Per every 1 kg $1.00 (product weight = 4 kg) Total value = $4.00
$10.00 + $4.00= $14.00
