Using Shipping Weight Restrictions with Multiple Product Shipping Classes

When a Scheduled Order contains multiple products with different shipping classes, weight restrictions will be applied for each shipping class in the Scheduled Order. 

In this example, a Scheduled Order contains 2 products - each with their own shipping class that matches a shipping rate with a free shipping rate. This results in the Scheduled Order applying both free shipping rates to the created Autoship Order. 

Increasing the item quantity by 1 on the large class product exceeds the maximum weight restriction of the "Large Class Free" rate, and instead the "Large Class Heavy" shipping rate is applied. 

In this example (below), see the change in the shipping rate applied for the "Large Class Heavy" rate compared the previous Autoship Order (above).

Taking this example one step further, Increasing the item quantity by 4 on the small class product exceeds the maximum weight restriction of the "Small Class Free" rate, and instead the "Small Class Heavy" shipping rate is applied. 

In this example (below), see the change in the shipping rate applied for the "Small Class Heavy" rate compared the previous Autoship Order (above).

How to Setup a Free Shipping Rate for Orders over $30 within a Country - Multiple Item Shipping Classes

  1. Create a new Shipping Rate (for each item with a shipping class you want to meet the Minimum [Scheduled Order] Subtotal condition) and give it a name (for example, "Large ", "Small", etc.) within Autoship Cloud > Shipping Rates.
  2. shipping rates for multiple classes
  3. Enter the shipping class that matches the "slug" of the shipping class for the WooCommerce Product (for example: small / large)
  4. For the Country, select a specific value like: "US | USA"
  5. For Minimum Subtotal enter the subtotal the Scheduled Order must meet for free shipping

Result: Though neither item on the Scheduled Order (below) meets the $30 minimum subtotal alone, the Scheduled Order would receive free shipping because it meets the shipping class of both items and the Minimum Subtotal condition for the Scheduled Order ($30).

Overriding a "Default" Shipping Rate For Faster Shipping

In this example, a Customer needs their Scheduled Order processed and shipped quickly, so they request an expedited shipping rate. 

The merchant edits their Scheduled Order, reviews the valid shipping rates and overrides the automatically applied "Default" Shipping Rate by selecting an applicable, but more expensive, "Rush Shipping" rate to the Scheduled Order.
