    Default Re: Handling Fee as Percentage?

    Regarding the solution in #17, is this percentage added to the order total or calculated shipping cost of order based on weight? Am needing to do similar and want to confirm it is based on the shipping amount vs the entire order. Thank you for any info.

    Thank you for posting your solution, it works nicely. For info my question about what the percent is calculated on, it appears to be order total.

    help question Re: Handling Fee as Percentage?

    Hello:

    I hate to keep this thread going, but based on the title, I think it applies to my dilemma. I am using the latest version of Zen Cart, and I am looking to apply a percentage-based handling fee to my shipping. I am using a priced-based table rate and would like to add a 5% handling fee based on total cost after taxes. I know from reading the other posts as well as other threads where to find the module's php, but am confused on how I would be able to change the formula to multiply by the handling fee instead of adding the fee.

    Please help! Thanks!

    No need to have an additional "Handling Fee" on the Shipping Module, this formula by-passes that.

    USPS Shipping:
    /public_html/includes/modules/shipping/usps.php

    insert " +($order->info['subtotal'] * .05 + 1.70) into Line 298
    where ($order->info['subtotal'] is your subtotal price * percent + overhead shipping cost.


    Orginal:
    'cost' => ($cost * $shipping_num_boxes) + (MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING_METHOD == 'Box' ? MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING * $shipping_num_boxes : MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING) );

    Updated:
    'cost' => ($cost * $shipping_num_boxes) + ($order->info['subtotal'] * .05 + 1.70) + (MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING_METHOD == 'Box' ? MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING * $shipping_num_boxes : MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_HANDLING) );

    Free Shipping:
    /public_html/includes/modules/shipping/freeoptions.php

    insert "($order->info['subtotal'] * .03 + 2.75) +"
    where ($order->info['subtotal'] is your subtotal price * percent + overhead shipping cost.


    Orginal:
    'cost' => MODULE_SHIPPING_FREEOPTIONS_COST + MODULE_SHIPPING_FREEOPTIONS_HANDLING)));

    Updated:
    'cost' => MODULE_SHIPPING_FREEOPTIONS_COST + ($order->info['subtotal'] * .03 + 2.75) + MODULE_SHIPPING_FREEOPTIONS_HANDLING)));

    Hope this helps anyone else out there.
    Ok, this worked on the old version, but it doesn't seem to work on the January 2012 update. Anyone know what I might need to do different or what I'm doing wrong? I'm using .03 + 1.75 for the USPS module.

    Add this line in RED to the code and see what is being calculated:
    Code:
              $cost = preg_replace('/[^0-9.]/', '',  $cost);
    
    // add $this->usps_countries to title to test actual country
    echo 'I See USPS Cost: ' . $cost . ' Extra: ' . ($order->info['subtotal'] * .03 + 1.75) . ' = ' . (($order->info['subtotal'] * .03 + 1.75) + $cost) . '<br>';
