Charge additional fees within an order for such things as special packaging, artistic setup, order surcharge, or any miscellaneous charge that needs to be applied and is not an actual product.
The owner can use this module to designate multiple fees for use within a store to be: 1) applied to all orders, 2) applied once to an order as long a specified product is ordered, or 3) applied for each time a fee associated product is counted in the basket.
Once the store is setup with the possible fees, it is a simple matter of assigning the type of fees applicable to a particular product from the Product Edit Screen in admin. A single product can even have multiple fees. Or in some cases, you might want to use a fee which is only assigned once as long as specific products are ordered. There is also a fee type which is assigned once no matter what products are ordered. That would be your typical handling fee. You could also use this type for an order surcharge, i.e. $x.xx if the order does not exceed a certain amount.
The fees can be marked as taxable or non-taxable.
Fees can be charged depending on the ship to location (state, zip, or country)
You can specify a range for each fee type. The fee will only be applied if the order subtotal reaches an amount that falls within the range. You can also apply the fee if only a specific attribute is selected. For example, if someone selects to personalize a product, youcould charge an artwork fee for the setup or logo creation.
The module currently fully supports the mivasql configuration of MIVA Merchant 5. It also supports MySQL as long as load balancing has the data stored on the single MySQL server and permissions are set correctly on the data directories. This would be the case in most of the server setups.
Emporium Plus creates and licenses plugin modules for Miva Merchant, a highly extensible eCommerce shopping cart application for the Internet.
