ONTRAPORT does not allow for an increase in shipping costs based on quantity.

For this reason, you may want to consider charging a higher rate of shipping for heavy physical products and offer the option for clients to choose their own quantity.

You can also implement responses based on the quantity ordered. This would be done through a Rule: https://support.ontraport.com/entries...

  1. Click on Contacts in the left-hand navigation. Click on Rules in the dropdown.
  2. Add a new Rule: http://screencast.com/t/6gKHXcNDRNla
  3. Choose the trigger 'Purchases Product,' and select the Product name from the dropdown.
  4. Add the condition 'Has ordered a certain amount of a product.'
  5. Choose the 'greater than or equal to' option and enter the number after which you want the Rule outcome to be applied. Ex: If you want to be alerted when a customer purchases five or more of your product, your condition would look like this: http://screencast.com/t/FUWt0IcNCw
  6. Choose the response you need (e.g., a Sequence for the contact, a Task for you or an employee, or a notification email for you).

Here are some use cases you may want to consider:

  1. A Rule with Sequence response to notify clients when they have purchased more than what you have in your inventory that will send a Task notification to you or a staff member alerting of the purchase.
  2. A Rule with Task Outcome to manually add an additional charge for extra shipping if a client purchases more than a certain amount.
