  • 133.333333% = 3:4 ratio - meaning slider height 133.33333% of the slider width. this will display in a portrait orientation.

Example Paypal Setup


The send email notifier is sending shopping cart data & the checkout form data to Blogger store set email & also a copy to the senders email.

It comes with a basic form validation helper which helps Blog store owners in making sure orders sent are filled accordingly.

Note: This plugin does not save or keep data as all emails sent here is "on-the-fly" to the receiver end. There is no data kept or saved to make sure all emails sent successfully even on heavy traffic or loads.

To automatically receive the submitted form to your email, go to Store Configuration > click Edit and add below:-

  • At New Site Name field add parameter my_store_email 
  • At New Site URL field add your [A Valid Email Address] 
  • Click Save link to save your parameter.

Click Save to save your setup. By now, at checkout form, the send order will attempt to send the filled order form & cart data to this email you have entered.

There is lots more of text/edits you can automatically include at the send order notifier body, for example:-

  • Payment instructions.
  • General notes.
  • Your business contact details & etc.

Use parameters below to the assigned widget to add in your custom text at the email notifier.

There might be some display issues for non roman text characters which depends on the character/lettering/language support at the receiving email provider end or the PC the viewer is viewing the email - please use wisely.

If you want to include apostrophe or double quotes, add a backslash (\) before it to allow Blogger to render your text correctly - if not errors will occur.

Adding more Currency Options
Add in more currency options using the method above. Re-arrange your currency options using the up & down arrow. Always make sure that the first option in your widget is your current currency used at your store with the rate at 1.


Understanding Plug-in Concept

Using Blogger widgets to map out your shipping weight to your shipping price, this add on will find the weight in cart & extracts the price in user's selected option & update the cart totals automatically.

It comes with various default values if, somehow store owners forgets to enter a weight for an item or even alert users if their cart items has reached a maximum weight, a default value has been assigned.

All of this settings can be customized accordingly using BlogrCart Blogger store template helper (Store Configuration) widget located at Blogger dashboard Layout & makes it easy for non techy users to update accordingly without knowing any coding.


Setup Shipping Select

Go to Store Configuration widget > click edit > add as follows:-


  • At New Site Name field add parameter shipping_method
  • At New Site URL field add value of shippingCustom 
  • Click Save to save your parameter.


Click Save to update your configurations settings.

Doing this alone will not show your shipping options at checkout page. This is because you have not yet entered your options at the Shipping Options widget.

Setup Shipping Options

Setting up is made easy when you have understand the basics on the format pairing values that has been assigned with this add on plugin. But before that, find Shipping Options helper widget & click edit to enter your options.

There will be 2 fields assigned for this widget for an option:-

  • Text entered at New Site Name field will display as the text for option at checkout.
  • Inside Link URL field is where you enter the weight to price format values for this option.

Weight to Price Format (at Shipping Option Values)

An example weight to price format for a shipping option will look like so:-

500:6.00 , 1000:12.00 , 1500:18.00 , 2000:36.00, 2500:42.00 , 3000:58.00 , 3500:69.00 , 4000:80.00

By default the weight is using grams as weight unit. But users can change to a different weight metric & will be detailed out later in this page. Looking at the example, the weight to price format is like so:

  • Highlighted yellow is a weight unit (decimal points not allowed)
  • Highlight cyan is a price in (required 2 decimal points) when this weight unit is reached.
  • A ":" is the separator between weight to price pairings
  • A comma " , " is the separator between each weight to price pairs.
  • No ending comma is required for the last value pairs.

Explanation for the above, if the cart items reached 500(weight unit) then the shipping price will be 6.00(currency unit). And so goes if the cart weight reached 3500(weight unit), then the shipping price 69.00(currency unit)

Highlighted in yellow is the unit that the plug-in will search for. This weight unit increment must be consistent throughout the weight value entered. From the example above the increment is in 500 (weight unit).

Weight increment & its consistencies for an option is very important. This consistent increment value must be updated at shipping_weight_increment parameter if changed. If not shipping is set to 0.

Continue to add your options using the method above. Click Save & preview your checkout page.

You can also use Shipping Option Tool to help you print out the format & to allow you to copy & paste your weight price values directly to your shipping options quickly. :) http://blogrcart-mnmlis.blogspot.my/p/shipping-options-tool.html



Updating Weight Increments

If however your weight needs a different weight increments, for example 250:[some_price] , 500:[some_price], 750:[some_price] and so on, then you can update the shipping plug-in to use your new increment units.

Go to Store Configuration > add parameter shipping_weight_increment (in New Site Name field) > add value 250 (at New Site URL field) and click Save Link & Save your widget. This will override the add on to use a new incremental weight you have entered which is 250 (weight units).

Important if this weight increments is changed, then you are required to edit/update other saved options using the same weight increment values. Multiple weight increment for an option will set the shipping value to 0.

Updating Weight Units

By default the weight is using units equivalent to grams. This is reflected at shipping_weight_metric parameter assigned. This would be the ideal basis to convert the shipping weight to lb (pounds) or kg (kilograms) & reflect at checkout page & cart views.

Currently supported 3 units which are:-

  • gram(default)
  • pounds (lb) 
  • kilograms(kg).

Using Pounds(lb) as Weight Metric

To update cart, to use pounds (lb) & display at checkout. Go to Store Configuration widget > click Edit > add parameter shipping_weight_metric (in New Site Name field) > add value lb (at New Site URL field) > click Save Link & Save your widget. New weight metric of pounds pre-calculated & displayed at checkout page & view cart.

Since that the weight is based on units (grams) the pounds weight values must be converted to use grams. For example:

1/4 lb = 113.398 gram => Enter 100 as weight value as it is the closest rounded weight

or

1 1/8 lb = 623.69 gram => Enter 600 as weight value as it is the closest.

Prices for weight

Add any price value with no particular value increment. For the price units, 2 decimals places is required.

Using Kilograms(kg) as Weight Metric

Kilograms is very straight forward. The item weight values is divided to 1000 to display in kilograms since that the plug-in weight unit used is based on gram weight value.


Updating Maximum Weight in Cart

By default, the shipping has a 5000 (weight unit) for a maximum weight the cart could reach before displaying the alerts to users & disables the checkout form button.

Required to add a consistent max weight value pairing for ALL the shipping options saved,

Based on the example above, the maximum weight is 4000(weight unit). Which means all other options are required with a maximum weight value pairing of 4000(weight unit) too.

To update the cart for this setting, Go to Store Configurations widget > click edit > add parameter shipping_weight_max (at New Site Name field) > add value 4000 (at Link URL field) > click Save Link & Save your widget.

This will update the cart to not use 5000 (default max weight unit) but to use your updated values which is 4000(weight unit) instead.

If a shipping_max_weight value is not available in a shipping option, shipping will return 0.



A Working Example

Here we are displaying 3 location shipping options based on a carrier provider in Malaysia. Below example we are providing 3 options for users to select during checkout:-

  • Delivery Within P. Malaysia
  • Delivery P. Malaysia to Sarawak
  • Delivery P. Malaysia to Sabah

To key in the option weight to price values for the above, below would be the working example:-

Option #1 New Site Name field: Delivery Within P. Malaysia
Option #1 New Site URL field:


500:7.00 , 1000:9.00 , 1500:11.00 , 2000:16.00 , 2500:18.00 , 3000:20.00 , 3500:22.00 , 4000:24.00 , 4500:26.00 , 5000:28.00 , 5500:30.00 , 6000:32.00; 6500:34.00 , 7000:36.00 , 7500:38.00 , 8000:40.00 , 8500:42.00 , 9000:44.00 , 9500:46.00 , 10000:48.00

Option #2New Site Name field: Delivery P. Malaysia to Sarawak
Option #2New Site URL field:

500:9.00 , 1000:10.00 , 1500:14.00 , 2000:26.00 , 2500:30.00 , 3000:34.00 , 3500:37.00 , 4000:41.00 , 4500:44.00 , 5000:48.00 , 5500:51.00 , 6000:55.00; 6500:58.00 , 7000:62.00 , 7500=65.00 , 8000:69.00 , 8500:72.00 , 9000:76.00 , 9500:79.00 , 10000:83.00

Option #3New Site Name filed: Delivery P. Malaysia to Sabah
Option #3New Site URL field:


500:10.00 , 1000:11.00 , 1500:15.00 , 2000:31.00 , 2500:35.00 , 3000:39.00 , 3500:43.00 , 4000:47.00; 4500:51.00 , 5000:55.00 , 5500:59.00 , 6000:63.00 , 6500:67.00 , 7000:71.00 , 7500:75.00 , 8000:79.00 , 8500:83.00 , 9000:87.00 , 9500:91.00 , 10000:95.00

Good news, if you are a store owner in Malaysia & using Post Laju services as your currier service, you can just copy the values here to your shipping options ;) .

From the above example we would set:

Store Configuration widget add parameter shipping_weight_increment (at New Site Name field) & the value of 500 (at New Site URL field) - whereas 500 is the increments between the weight values (or easily explained the consistent differences of the entered value weight)

And also..

Add parameter shipping_weight_max (at New Site Name field) & the value of 10000 (at New Site URL field) to set the maximum weight entered for all the options above.

To enable the shipping options & display it at checkout, add parameter shipping_options (at New Site Name field) & the value of true (at New Site URL field).

Quick Notes

  • If a shipping option is not formatted as per required, shipping rate will return NaN (Not A Number).
  • If shipping_method not set to shippingCustom, shipping select will not display.
  • If a weight is not found in an option, the shipping total will return 0.

You can also use the Shipping Option Tool to help you to create the option weight to price here at http://blogrcart-mnmlis.blogspot.my/p/shipping-options-tool.html. All you have to do is add the values required & this tool will automatically create your options values. Cut & paste the results to your option - its's easy!

You're all set!

Optimize Uploaded Post Images

Images play an important role to bring your blog content more closely to users/readers at your blog, either in PC or even mobile. Crisp, clear & large images will attract more than text only content, which also supports the topic you are addressing.

Before uploading to your blog use free services like https://tinypng.com/ to automatically compress you large images file size without deprecating the original image output.

This helps to reduce bandwith usages on Blogger servers & also reduce the amount of image space usages on your Google image online storage.
