Shipping price adjustments

This article describes how to adjust a shipping price in Ingrid Checkout with the usage of Price Rules. It explains the general concept of price rules and supported functions.

What are the price rules?

Price rules in Ingrid are used to adjust the price for the delivery in the Delivery Checkout. 

You as a merchant can adjust the delivery price with various parameters/conditions: the total sum of the cart, the weight of the items or any voucher code. That behaviour can be defined in Ingrid Merchant Platform.

Setting up a shipping price adjustment

Steps:

  1. From your Ingrid Merchant Platform admin go to Delivery Checkout > Regions > Specific region > Specific carrier.
  2. Find Price rules field.
  3. To add a new price rule click "Add new".
  4. Next you will get a dropdown list with available conditions to adjust the delivery price.

  5. Choose a parameter/conditions, click "Add condition".
  6. Enter a condition value.
  7. Set up a new delivery price in the field "Carrier Product Price".


    Image 2 - Example of Total Cart Value price rule. If total cart value is over 10, then delivery price is 50.


    Image 3 - Example of voucher price rule. If the voucher code "free_shipping" is sent in Ingrid session, then the delivery price is 0.
  8. Click "Save".

Additional notes

1. For "numeric" price rules (Total cart value, total quantity, total weight etc.) there are 4 signs available: bigger, less, bigger or equal, less or equal. So depending on whether an input value is bigger, less or bigger/less or equal to the value in the price rule, the delivery price will be adjusted.

2. For "string" price rules (like Cart item attribute, Vouchers) you can define string parameters which are expected to come from your e-commerce.

Image 5 - Example of Cart item attribute rule with "shoes" as an attribute. If "shoes" is present in the item attribute in Ingrid session the delivery price will be adjusted to 40.


Image 6 - Example of Voucher rule, if "50off" is present in Ingrid session, the price will be reduced to 20
 

Note: you as a merchant can modify the shipping price based on the input of the voucher code. Before you set this behaviour in Ingrid, consult with your e-commerce on adding the general information on voucher code in e-com first. Once it's set in e-com, you can add a relevant price rule in Ingrid. Mind that the voucher code is case sensitive and its value in Ingrid should be exactly the same as you have defined it in your e-commerce system.

3. You can add multiple conditions in one price rule. 
In this case the price rule would show the expected outcome if only all the conditions will be satisfied.

4. If many separate price rules are configured for one Carrier product, they are applied based on the order they have been set. For example, in the example below the rule "TOTAL_VALUE" will be checked first and if it's satisfied the rest of the price rules aren't taken into consideration. 
If the first rule wasn't satisfied, Ingrid checks the next one, "VOUCHER" fx, so on. If any of the rule could be applied, the Base price would be reflected on the delivery price in the Checkout.

Available conditions

Note: before you set up any price rules consider all possible variables that would impact the outcome delivery price. With price rules in Ingrid you can set up a single shipping price rule or multiple rules in one. This means that if all the conditions are satisfied the delivery price will be adjusted accordingly.
