Multi-shipping and How it Works (Individual Product Shipping)

Multi-shipping provides the customer with Product Level Shipping. At this time the feature supports only custom shipping methods for flat rate. This option gives the customer to create different customized methods for each of their products and set a Shipping Price for those products as well. 

Applies to Version(s): 3.8.2r3 - 3.X.X (or Current)

What is Multi-Shipping?

Note: Will not work for Real Time Shipping Methods such as Fedex, USPS, and UPS. This is only a Flat Rate option at this time. 

Multi-Shipping is an new addition to PinnacleCart that gives you the customer an opportunity to set the price per product being shipped. You will also see multiple shipments on checkout as such:

How do I turn this on?

Note: Currently only available for version 3.8.2r3 and above

When you log into your Cart Admin, navigate to the following Settings>Setup Your Store>Add New Method>Calculate Flat Rate Price>Set Individually per Product

You will want to select a name for your Flat Rate method, and one that will differ from your others so you can easily recognize your method. For my example here I've used Fedex as what I'll be doing my shipping with and incorporated that into the Ttitle:

Also in the Image above I've highlighted the Drop-Down for the option you will want. 

How do I turn this on for my products?

Next we will want to head to the product level. So find a product that you want to assign this Method by turning on "Calculate Shipping on Product Level" in the Advanced Settings at the Product Level. Once you check this, you will now see your options. In my example below I have 2 different methods, but will only want to select One method. 

You can have as many Multi-Ship methods as you would like per product, but remember that this is what the customer will see and be charge for based off your pricing. So I suggest you only use one per product and setup new ones for different products. 

In the example below I have 3 Multi-Shipping Options and another just based off of Weight:

Next test this out on a few different Products, set up 3 test products or use the ones that were inserted with the Theme and then create a few different Flat-Rate Shipping Methods

What will it look like on multiple products?

Note: Based off the theme and design of your cart this may look completely different than the example provided

Now that we have added Multi-Shipping to, find your products on the site (I suggest using a search widget to make this easier) and add to cart and proceed through checkout. Here is how mine look:
