How do I set-up calculation based on weight and current prices (USmail or UPS). Is there specific plug in that I need?
Also how do I check what version of woo-commerce do I have (i got abundance about a month ego)?
How are you?
You can create a specific shipping classes. Go to Products > Shipping Classes and create a custom class example is USmail. You can create a variation for your different products, example USmail-Expensive. Of course, you can come up with a better name than that. :)
Then go to WooCommerce > Shipping and select a shipping method, most likely International Delivery or Flat Rate. Click add flat rate and assign the Shipping Class that you just created. Set the price and handling fee. You can now assign this custom shipping class to your products of different weight. I hope you get the idea. You may want to experiment in order to get the desired results.
You can find the version of your WooCommerce plugin on Plugins. :)
I have done this and this is not going to work for my situation. Problem is that all of my products have the same weight. The order however may be for 1 book 2 books or 100books (if book purchased by school). So it looks to me that I need an option to calculate cost (as mailing 2 books is not 2 times as much as mailing 1 book). Is there a way I could do the calculations based on weight?
I believe in order to do that you would need to purchase the Advanced Shipping Optoins extension for WooCommerce.
