Add the container product just like a regular item but make sure you choose Grouped product from the drop down box in the Product data section. Click on Linked Products and Grouped products. Type in the first few chars of the titles that should belong in the container and select all that apply by holding down the ctrl key. However, if you must sell the whole set as one product, you will just add the set of books as one product, and not list the books individually.

  • To charge 10% of total cost with a min of $2.50 and max of $15 enter [fee percent="10" min_fee="2.50" max_fee="15"]
  • To charge $2 per time, enter 10.00 * [qty]
  • To charge a flat fee of $3.95 for every shipment, enter $3.95, no brackets
  • Now that you have created your shipping class cost, you have to make sure you select this shipping class when you add each product.

    G&A is made for homeschoolers to exchange resources so it is highly preferred that the seller has either homeschooled or is currently homeschooling. It is essential that the products listed are wholesome and God-honoring. G&A reserves the right to remove any products that are inappropriate.
    Unlike mainstream online retailers, G&A does not take any commission from sellers. This makes it worthwhile to sell low priced items. Selling curriculum sets is as easy as selling one item on G&A which attract most homeschooling buyers.
