sorry i'm having a senior moment...
i'm using oc 1.5.22 and with no shipping mods (just the default ones) and i could have sworn there was a setting somewhere to add a flat fee or percentage in addition to the calculated shipping costs. For the life of me I can't locate it now..I'm only using UPS and USPS and cant see anything in the modules or anywhere i look..
am i on crack?
wasn't there a setting for that?
:crazy:

thanks!

There is no setting like that for the default UPS or USPS. Some shipping extensions come with an option like that, so maybe you used one of them in the past.

You can do this with Hidden Shipping Adjustments if you want the fee wrapped into the calculated cost. Otherwise, if you want to display it separately or need more complex calculations, you could use Shipping-Based Fee/Discount.

If shipping additional cost you want to add is fixed for all orders then you can use hadling fee which is there in order total.

I was trying to avoid applying "fees" as an additional line item just out of the negative stigma associated with them. that, and i know, i'd be annoyed if i saw it on a site. Fees is just another 4-letter word to me haha

Since I've already had a few orders be off by about 10% I'll need to modify the shipping file.
I imagine i just need to find the price line and multiply it by 1.1 to add the 10%..?

modified these 2 lines in 3 diff spots towards end of file. Basically where it said $cost, i changed to ($cost*1.05) to add 5% to shipping fees to offset my suppliers variances:

Code: Select all

'cost'         => $this->currency->convert(($cost*1.05), 'USD', $this->config->get('config_currency')),

'text'         => $this->currency->format($this->tax->calculate($this->currency->convert(($cost*1.05), 'USD', $this->currency->getCode()), $this->config->get('usps_tax_class_id'), $this->config->get('config_tax')), $this->currency->getCode(), 1.0000000));

I need to mark up shipping for UPS, FedEx and USPS in order to cover supplies but I do not want to show a S&H fee. Where do I edit the files as show above in order to add 5% markup to all 3 shippers? Or is there a mod to help me out?

I modified my original post to show that this is now possible with one of my extensions: Hidden Shipping Adjustments.

is there a version of the hidden shipping markup for 2.x? It sounds like what I am looking for but hadn't found yet for 2.x
Thanks.

Hidden Shipping Adjustments is still on my list to update for 2.0, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Hopefully soon.
