Per Product Shipping for WooCommerce

Business case: For shipping calculation, override/customize the item quantity using the product level shipping unit. Products will either count as multiple shipping units or fractional shipping units
Assign shipping unit at product level based on the shipping complexity and configure shipping cost based on the total shipping units customer purchased
The following table explains the shipping units for each product based on the size of the package.

  • Chair: 1 Quantity is 1 unit
  • Table: 1 Quantity is 5 unit 5
  • Cots: 1 Quantity is 20 unit 20
  • Wardrobes: 1 Quantity is 40 unit 40
  • Bedsheets: 10 Quantity is 1 unit

Total shipping unit will be calculated based on the shipping unit assigned for each product, and final shipping cost will be determined using the following Rate Matrix:

  • 1-4 Units $6.50/ea.
  • 5-14 Units $5.50/ea.
  • 15-24 Units $4.75/ea.
  • 25+ Units $3.00/ea.
