Greetings!

Is it possible to offer Real-time Shipping Quotes with a Custom Shipping method? Our company uses USPS and we offer a flat-rate shipping of $2.00 on certain products as a promotion no matter what the quantity is. It would also be nice to have the following options:
- ability to add a an additional shipping (handing) fee per product
- ability to add a an additional shipping (handing) fee per order
- ability to set the price for 1 product and then a reduced price if more than one item from the same product or product category is ordered (eg $2.00 for the first item and 0.25 for each additional item ordered)

Thanks!

one idea for this would be to add a ZONE table rate shipping option. Based on the zone (country code) you could set different available flat prices. And for the $2 promo they would need to add a "Flat Rate" shipping option.

Hello,

In CS-Cart 1.3.2 admin will be able to define:
- shipping freight for every product
- create shipping method, where base freight will be calculated by the selected realtime service and additional fee depends on order total, amount and weight of the products.

I have CS-Cart v.1.3.5 SP3. One of my suppliers uses a table to calculate shipping (zones and percentages based on cost) and two of my suppliers have set shipping fees. How can I implement this into my cart? I am currently using UPS to calculate the shipping but that isn't accurate.
I am not a programmer or developer so I need some step by step instructions on how to do this. Anyone up for this challenge?

the easiest way for cscart to handle this would be to allow us to enter negative adjustments..

so you could say, if the order is over $100 to add a -100% adjustment (fee) to the shipping, which would essentially make it $0

I mean, if we can add a fee to shipping, why can't we subtract one? (would also give people the ability to do stuff like a coupon giving 25% discount on shipping, or something to that effect)
