    The site i am building the shipping on the vendor shipping needs to be set as a percent of the item cost. is there a way to do this with the vendor shipping?


    No- we do not have a built-in way to calculate shipping as a percentage of the product cost.
    This would be a feature you would need to custom code or work with a developer to custom code for your marketplace. We usually recommend https://codeable.io for custom work such as this.


    @ccollareta Hey Chris, you probably need to set up your own shipping method. You might want to point your developer towards these docs to get started:

    You could also use the WC Vendors Pro built-in shipping method to store the rate info per vendor, and pull that info into your shipping method, even though you don’t actually use the WC Vendors shipping method.

    The WC Vendors Vendor shipping method has a wp_post_meta key called _wcv_shipping_details, which returns an array that looks like this:

        [national] => 
        [international] => 25
        [handling_fee] => 
        [national_qty_override] => 
        [national_disable] => 
        [national_free] => 
        [international_qty_override] => 
        [international_disable] => 
        [international_free] => 

    Hey Chris,

    I run a marketplace with WCV, and also develop a few plugins to extend the functionality. One of the ones we are about to release will allow your vendors to calculate their shipping charges based on a percentage of their subtotal. It will also allow vendors make different tiers. For instance, if they wanted to charge 50% for order up to $10, and 20% for orders over $10 they could. They would have the ability to create unlimited tiers.

    We have some basic info about the plugin and some screen shots up here: https://thepluginpros.com/downloads/wc-vendors-table-rate-shipping/
