how to add per kg shipping costs in Shipping Rates table?

Hi there, I need to add the following shipping costs to my Shipping table in Google Shopping but can't figure out how to do it. The only options I can see are fixed rate, percentage of order total, free, no shipping or link subtable. Can anyone help?

If the order weight is between 2.000 and 5.000 kg, add 0.12 per 1.000 kg

If the order weight is between 5.001 and 160.000 kg, add 0.11 per 0.500 kg

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

that sounds correct --

(a) currently there is no such concept as a multiplier for a rate-table --
a shipping table must be configured as a set of fixed-ranges;

(b) importantly perhaps, currently, there is no such concept as a
multi-item order, shopping-cart, or any similar grouping together,
of items, with respect to shopping-ads, including on google-shopping.

there is only the one, single, item-offer being advertised --
shipping is only for the one, single, item-offer submitted.

e.g. a maximum range will only need to cover up to the heaviest item-offer.

one possibility would be to complete the calculations
off-line and then configure the static table-ranges.

another possibility would be to complete the math prior to submitting
the (feed) data, adding a shipping value per item-offer as an override --
rather than using any account-level shipping; for example, by using a
set of spreadsheet formulas.

as an aside, always verify shipping, for an item-offer, by clicking
on the item's title, under the products-tab, in the merchant-center.

otherwise, a merchant-center specialist at google may be contacted directly.
