E-junkieGuru said "Shipping Rules are designed to work as part of an overall shipping calculation strategy and thus only apply to the buyer's entire cart"
Why such a strict limitation?
Wouldn't you rather say "E-junkie is designed to obtain and retain new users/subscribers via its easy to use highly flexible, fast to learn shipping rule creation abilities?"
I also want the ability to either use global shipping rules, or create a rule that can be locked to a single product as its locked out of being used on other products, or may be reused on other products if I so choose to allow.
I want the ability to determine on a product by product basis, which rule(s) that product is or is not allowed to use.
When we have a product its easy for us to know which rule we want to apply to that specific product. This does NOT require us to become an expert. But in order to have to learn all the global shipping options, possibilities and variables, requires us to have to be an expert in many cases so we can get the results we need to obtain. We don't all have the time for that learning curve.
Another problem with forcing us to use global rules only, is soon as we mess up, that mistake can instantly spill over and apply to many products simultaneously. Now while we are trying to learn one variable for one specific product, we have messed up the shipping costs across many products making our learning curve way too expensive.
Fine, let me make a mistake while learning, but let that mistake apply only to one product I am playing with at the moment. Dont force one mistake to be able and capable of messing up the shipping costs across many products. Thats ridiculous. But thats what your forcing upon us.
Please re-develop and change how products use shipping rules instead of ONLY how shipping rules apply globally to our products.
Being able to use global rules can be very good. Not allowing a single product to escape the umbrella coverage of global rules is VERY BAD.
Please change and do it very soon while I am still a subscriber of yours. You will do neither of us any favor if you change after I have switched cart companies.
The rest of your service is easy enough for us to quickly learn and use. So why continue keeping one single aspect of your service as such a nightmare that it chases us away from the rest of your service?
