Surcharge for Multiple Manufacturers- Sunday, August 31, 2014

A simple concept, with a tricky Count expression :)   We count distinct manufacturers for all the products in the cart.  The base shipping rate is 10.00 (includes up to one manufacturer), and then 3.00 extra surcharge for each manufacturer beyond the first.

Items.Select(Product.ProductManufacturers.Any() ? Product.ProductManufacturers.First().Manufacturer.Name : "").Distinct().Count() -1

Surcharge

[ManufacturerCount] <= 1 ? 0 : [ManufacturerCount] * 3.00

true

10.00

[Surcharge]

Note, that in nopCommerce, Products can have more than one manufacturer, so we only get its first one.  The " -1 " compensates for those products that don't have any manufacturer.  (You can remove that if you want to also count for "the store").  If you want to surcharge even for the first manufacturer, then  change the Surcharge expression to just  [ManufacturerCount] * 3.00

You can download the above configuration that you can then import into Shipping Director.

Add a handling charge for a manufacturer- Monday, July 8, 2013

If one of your suppliers (manufacturers) charges a handling fee for orders, you can pass that fee on to your customers.

Items.Any([@hasManufacturerX]) ? 10 : 0

Shipping.Fedex

[SurchargeForX]

Additionally, you can show the customer a description explaining that a fee has been added (it appears to customer under the shipping option name).  Just include a Description Expression on the Option line:

[SurchargeForX] = 0 ? "" : "A $" + [Surcharge].ToString() + " has been added because your cart contains a product from manufacturer X"

If you only want to charge the fee if the total amount of merchandise from that particular manufacturer is under $250, then we need to calculate the total $ amount of the items for that manufacturer, and then the expression for SurchargeForX would need to check if that total less than $250:

Modify the above - add line 30 for the total $ calculation and change line 50 to use the total:

Items.Where([@hasManufacturerX]) .Sum(Product.Price  * Quantity)

SurchargeForX

[TotalForX] < 250 ? 10 : 0

 

 

Note, that the “the total amount of merchandise from that particular manufacturer” is the full price amount – i.e. does not include any discounts.

(Updated Aug. 2014.  If using nopCommerce versions prior to 3.00, then use ProductVariant.Product in plasce of just Product, and ProductVariant.Price in place of Product.Price)
