Shipping Rates Calculator Needed

This is for UPS live rates. I would like this designed so a default zip code does NOT appear (customer side) and that in the cart the rates are not pulled by UPS (page loading speed reasons) until a zipcode is entered in the cart. Previous mod for x-brand used the store zipcode as the default and it appeared in the shipping calculator in the store. This forced every customer to change the zipcode and many customers overlooked this and were charged for rates different then what they saw.



I would also like the following backup system installed and available in admin. for value changes, if live rates become temporarily unavailable for the customer due to UPS server issues.



1…(Backup_System) BaseRate



This field establishes a single flat rate for a Backup shipping method. This is used when the method is set to a System of Backup, or when a Live system cannot retrieve the live rates for an order that uses this method. This amount is applied once to an order.



2… (Backup_System) CostPerPound



This field establishes a basic cost per pound for a Backup shipping method. This is used when the method is set to a System of Backup, or when a Live system cannot retrieve the live rates for an order that uses this method. This amount is applied per pound based on the total weight of the order.



We really need this to compete with the big players in e-commerce.
