I have some items that I want to show local customers that I sell, but they are of a size that I don’t want to have to box and ship them. Currently I only mention “No shipping” in large bold type in the description, but a buyer can still ignore that, buy it and choose a shipping method. I want to have Pickup In-Store as the only available shipping method if a certain item is in the cart.
Am I missing something that will allow this? Or is there an available add-on?
You can limit the weight of other shipping methods and create a seperate shipping method for these items with a specific weight e.g. 100000.02 to 100000.06 and make those items 100000.04 (I use this method, note the weight tolarance in cs-cart is .02 hence the weights chosen in this example).
You could of course just have a high weight without the narrow definition I use, I do it in my case to allow me to configure a ‘special’ shipping method for other vendors.
Here’s roughly what I take from this. 1) I already have 50 & 70 pound limits on all my UPS & USPS methods, 2) On the “unshippable” items, change their weight to 100000.04, 3) create a new method such as “oversize item - in-store pickup” and make its limits 100000.02 to 100000.06.
