I'm working on this flooring site and obviously customers will purchase the amount equal to their specific square foot requirement. The product ships in boxes or bundles with a minimum amount per box. On the old site there was a calculator to allow the customer to put in their sqft needs and get a box count out. Is there any way to add something similar for wordpress in general or marketpress specifically?
Also on a related note I'm working on a freight shipping integration but in the meantime the ship by weight option seems to have the most compatibility for my purpose. The product is sold by the square-foot for which I have a weight and then add the weight of appropriate shipping materials like a pallet. How do I get the cart to calculate the shipping based on the weight provided by the square-footage and based on the number of boxes add the weight of shipping material?
If I can get it to display the total weight (can be in the cart on the back-end on the order) that will be a step towards the shipping solution I'm looking for.
