Urgent / Oscommerce Custom Delivery Calculation (relisted)

Relisted due to the last guy wanting to be paid through Western Union before the job was even started.

*/*/*/Please note, I'm very flexible in payment but please do not expect to be paid in advance.*/*/*/

Please oly bid if you know you can do this as I cant afford to waste anymore time on this.

OK, so thats the gritty stuff out the way :)

Here is my problem..

Each product has a weight assigned to it, and when you get to the checkout all the weights are added together to create a 'grand total' and drop the 'whole' order into the correct delivery band..ok, no problems there.

The problem I have however, is I have a client who requires the delivery cost to be worked out using the following method.

Example. (These are just to help you understand the principle)

Item A weighs 100grams

Item B weighs 200grams

Item C weighs 300grams

Item D weighs 400grams

Delivery Charges

Upto 100g - £1.00

100g - 200g - £2.00

200g - 300g - £3.00

300g - 400g - £4.00

400g - 1500g - £6.00

Suppoing a customer purchases all 4 items then the total weight would be 1000grams (1kilo)

The system then find the correct delivery charge for 1kg in this case it would be £6.00

My client method however is this,

Add the lowest delivery charge (Item A) to the highest delivery charge (Item D) to give the total which would be £1.00 + £4.00 = £5.00

To complicate things further a flat fee of £5.95 is charged for any order over £35 regardless of weight.

And the minimum deliver charge for a single low weight item is £1.50 (equivelent to Item A x2), but if the customer purchases multiple items then the lowest weight (100g) is charged at [url removed, login to view] + highest weight charge.

Maximum charge regardless of number of items should always be Lowest + Highest

Anyone handle this?
