I am a company that is looking to export food and drink to consumers internationally.
I am currently in the process of designing my website and I am wondering if anyone can help regards to how packaging and boxing weights are calculated and added to the dead weight of the products at checkout.
Can anyone recommend a good plugin that will help with this. I have all the shipping costs and weight bands but just don’t know how to add in the boxing and packaging to get the finally weight.
It very much depends on the platform you use to build your website on.
There are some plugins that work with most e-commerce platforms: you can try the measurement price calculator from WooThemes (http://docs.woothemes.com/document/measurement-price-calculator/). If you have a programmer resource, he/she can configure it to the outputs you want to have.
Alternatively, you can work with a web developer to configure the e-commerce side completely for you. We work with Romania-based UpDivision; they work in the UK as well and we can put you in touch.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further assistance.
Good luck with your projects!
