    Default Shipping Module, Table Rate Error

    Hi - please find below the settings for the weight based shipping module I am trying to set up...

    when testing the module...if i place an item that has a weight of up to 100grams, it figures the shipping cost, but then if I add another item that has a weight of 795grams, it is wanting to charge $54.00.

    What I am wanting is up to 100grams, $3.00 and then over 100grams up to 500grams, $6.50 and then up to 3000grams $15 etc

    why is this not working for me??

    Default Re: Shipping Module, Table Rate Error

    If you are using grams rather than pounds ... the default settings for Maximum Weight in the Configuration ... Shipping/Packaging ... is set to 50 ...

    You need to raise that amount so work with your grams ... something like 20000 so it does not try to adjust the shipping ...

    Also, look at the Tare Rates ... if you do not want the weight further adjusted, set those to 0:0 ...

    THANK YOU!

    I simply went into the admin - configuration - shipping/packaging and changed the "Enter the Maximum Package Weight you will ship" amount from 50 to 20000.

    I went and refreshed my shopping cart page to re-test and the charges for shipping are now correct...
