Set Shipping Cost to $0 for downloadable products

Sep 9, 2009 at 10:33 PM

Hi, I want to offer both downloadable product and "physical" products to customer. I understand I can set FreeShippingLimit to $0 so there won't be any shipping cost for downloadable products, however I also want to set the shipping cost for my "physical" products to $6. Is there a way I can satisfy both?

Cheers very  much

Hi Ray,

The way I would do this would be to use the shipping by weight ranges.   Set you physical products to a weight (It doesn't have to be there true weight) and set the downloadable ones a weight of 0.  In the weight ranges set 0-1 a shipping rate of 0 and set rate ranges above accordingly.   This way when your clients basket contains both physical and downloadble products the shipping will be correct.
