    Shipping Distribution

    Configuration:

    You can configure your approval settings from here for seller shipping.

    If admin enables shipping distribution, then he will be liable for distributing shipping.

    Note: If admin product exists with any seller product and “distribute shipping between admin and seller both” is set to “No”, then full shipping for that order will be assigned to seller. If set to “yes” the shipping distribution will follow a ratio based on either price or weight of admin and seller’s product.

    Now, admin can decide on whether to distribute shipping to seller/admin.
    Go to Shipping -> Carriers -> Select the shipping method -> Shipping distribute to -> Set the value(seller/admin/Both).

    Shipping Distribution Cases:

    Case 1:

    1. Customer ordered a seller’s product “Printed Summer Dress”.
    2. Seller shipping method “Express exports” is applied on the product.

    Now at the carriers page in back office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on seller shipping.

    Here, in this case, full shipping charges will go to the seller.

    2. Shipping method of admin i.e. “Go Express” is applied on the product.

    Now at the carriers page in the back-office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on admin shipping. Now we will check if shipping is set according to total price or total weight.

    When shipping is set according to total price:
    Then following a ratio based on price of seller 1 and seller 2 product, shipping charges will distributed between sellers as follows:

    Shipping to seller 1: ((seller 1 product price/total price of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((12.90/82.90)*10)
    =0.1556 * 10
    =1.556

    Shipping to seller 2: ((seller 2 product price/total price of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((70/82.90)*10)
    =0.844 * 10
    =8.44

    If a customer has ordered from 2 different sellers. “Demo product (3 kg)” from seller 1 and “demos prod(8 kg)” from seller 2.

    When shipping is set according to total weight:
    Then following a ratio based on weight of seller 1 and seller 2 product, shipping charges will be distribute between sellers as follows:
    Shipping to seller 1: ((‘Mary Jones’ product weight/total weight of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((3/11)*57)
    =0.2727 * 57
    =15.5454

    Shipping to seller 2: ((‘Jane Doe’ product weight/total weight of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((8/11)*57)
    =0.7272 * 57
    =41.4545

    Case 3:

    1. A Customer ordered a product of seller and a product of admin.
    2. Admin shipping method “Go Express” is applied on the product.

    Now at the carriers page in back office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on admin shipping.

    And approval setting “distribute shipping between seller and admin both” under configuration is Enabled.

    Then following a ratio based on price of admin’s and seller’s product, shipping charges will be distributed between seller and admin as follows:

    Shipping to admin: ((admin product price/total price of admin and seller’s product)*total shipping)

    =((12.90/82.90)*10)
    =0.155*10
    =1.55

    Shipping to seller: ((seller product price/total price of admin and seller’s product)*total shipping)

    =((70/82.90)*10)
    =0.844*10
    =8.44

    Admin end:

    Seller end:

    Now at the carriers page in the back office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on admin shipping.

    And approval setting “distribute shipping between seller and admin both” under configuration is disabled.

    Then in this case, full shipping charges will go to the seller.
