    I need a system where the first KG of weight is 20 euros and every subsequent KG of weight is 1.50. Can I do that? I don't understand how the weight based calculator makes any difference at all.

    Thanks,

    Jessie

    The Shipping option in your payment integration  is charging each product.

    The first item cost would be the cost when your item is 1st selected.

    Example:Party sampler which costs 165 and has a first item cost of 20.

    When a user selects the same item and bought two quantity, the second item shipping cost would be 1.50 as it is an additional item.

    20 for the first item cost + 1.50 for the additional item cost

    So if a user selects another item, the calculation will then add a shipping costs of 20 + the total amount.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't calculate the subsequent weight. It calculates the quantity of items bought.

    If you want to calculate the shipping using weight, you would have to manually calculate your products and payment. This will remove your current setup and use Form calculation widget for calculation.
