[Solved] Price based on the weight

Hello, I wonder if there is a way to calculate the price based on the weight of each product, because I'm creating a jewelry store and need to calculate the price from the stones's weight. If so, could you give an example of how to do that?
Thanks.

Welcome to the Opencart forum. Which OC version are you using?

The weight shipping module already calculates the weight by each products. In your admin - > extensions - > shipping - > weight module, this can be found and used. :)

More information can be found on the docs page regarding shipping modules: http://docs.opencart.com/extension/shipping/

Does anyone know where to edit Weight Based Shipping file that comes with OC so the weight does not show during check out just the cost?

Yes, depending on the OC version you're using, this would either be in your catalog/model/total/weight.php file or into your catalog/model/extension/total/weight.php file if using the latest version of Opencart.

Since there are some parentheses that may be useful for other modules when fetching the text information, I would suggest to do the changes as the following from your catalog/model/extension/shipping/weight.php file.

Find:

Code: Select all

'title'        => $result['name'] . '  (' . $this->language->get('text_weight') . ' ' . $this->weight->format($weight, $this->config->get('config_weight_class_id')) . ')',
replace with:

Code: Select all

'title'        => $result['name'] . '  ()',
See if that fixes the issue.
