Jigoshop Basic Weight Shipping


Extend the Jigoshop shipping methods by adding a basic weight method.

This is a very simple plugin that allows you to set weight based shipping fees. Six levels of weights are alowed.

First level is letter weight limit and fee for sending letters.
Example: level0 = 0.1kg with next field as 1.00 CHF = total weight of an order in the cart ist between 0kg and 0.1 kg and has a letter sending fee of 1.00 CHF
Example: level1 = 2kg with next field as 10 CHF = the total weight of an order in the cart is between 0.1kg and 2 kg and has a fee of 10 CHF.
Example: level2 = 5 kg with next field as 20 CHF = the total weight of an order in the cart is between 2kg and 5 kg and has a fee of 20 CHF.

My thanks goes to Iain at Polevaultweb, who developed a basic bundle shipping plugin for jigoshop. You can find his plugin at
