Package manager (Multiple shipping package for order)
Ability to effortlessly break down your orders into multiple shipping packages!
With our plugin you can create rule to group product in one shipping package based on there category or shipping class. This will allow you to easily manage your order and also allow you to offer a different shipping method for different shipping package and charge different shipping cost for each package separately with in same order. In pro version you can create the package based on product, category, shipping class, attribute (WooCommerce registered attribute), product cost, product stock status (if in stock or on back order).
You want to charge a flat 20$ for each unit of fragile items and flat 10$ for each unit of non fragile items.
So you will create a Package to group fragile items in a separate shipping package and non fragile items in a separate shipping package.
Then you will create a shipping method for fragile items and set the shipping cost to 20$ * quantity and then create a shipping method for non fragile items and set the shipping cost to 10$ * quantity.
so if a customer adds 2 unit of fragile items
and 3 unit of non fragile items in the cart
then the customer will be shown 2 shipping package on his checkout page
with one package consisting of fragile items and shipping method with cost 203 = 60$
and another shipping package for non fragile items with shipping method with cost 102 = 20$.
