OpenCart Versions: 1.5.2.x - 2.0.3.x (older versions available upon request)

Create fees and discounts based on the cart weight, cart volume, and item dimensions! This extension uses an intuitive "rules" system to easily determine when your charges appear. You can adjust the cart weight and/or volume before calculations take place.
  • Upload and go — modifies no core files.

  • Enjoy peace of mind: all settings are automatically saved to the database when changed, and are backed up to a backup file every time the admin panel is loaded. Settings can also be manually backed up, and then downloaded to restore from later, or to edit in a spreadsheet application.

  • Create charges quickly and easily using the clean admin interface and intuitive rules system. Available rule types include:

    - Adjustments: charge adjustments, weight/volume adjustments, min/max charges, rounding charges, charging brackets cumulatively, applying tax classes, and more

    - Cart/Item Criteria: length, width, height, volume, and weight

    - Order Criteria: restrict charges by currency, customer group, geo zone, language, and store

  • Use the included Testing Mode to determine why charges are not appearing on the front-end, helping to debug complex rule interactions.
