I just don't understand shipping... Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 20 May 2006 - 01:25 AM #1

I've customized my store to the upteenth degree moving around and reconfiguring tpl files and the whole bit, but for the life of me I just don't get how to set up shipping. I'd love to have UPS Real Time Shipping, USPS Real Time Shipping and USPS Flat Rate shipping as options. Where do I get started. I've read the documentation and its weak and hard to comprehend.

Please help. Thank you.

Support had to upload several new files, I had to do a db upgrade, and then I also had to code in the address to my hosts Curl proxy server for everything to work smoothly. It took about 4 days to get it all said and done.

On my site I am only allowing Purchase Order Quotes as a payment option. I do not need real time shipping but I do need the customer to be able to select the shipping option they would like to use and for it to show up on there orders. Is there a way to setup shipping to do this becasue all I get is

"Unfortunately no shipping options are available for your location.
Please contact us and we will see about delivering to you"

Looked all around the forums and couldnt find anything helpful, any Ideas?

On the left hand side in the admin panel there is an option for:

Shipping Methods, where you input the costs of shipping, and selecting a destination parameter you can set in...

Destinations on the bottom left hand side allows you to set locations where to ship.

Why not use USPS Flat Rate Shipping? its a no brainer and we even have a custom mod that prints USPS Priority Mail labels, its so easy.
