Hi..

The title says it all, but I want to offer a editable Flat Rate shipping charge for UPS (USA Only) orders
and display the detail transit times offered by the ups.xml.

Right now I am running the UPS XML add-on module and its is working great, but the feedback I am getting from my customers is that they do not know the shipping costs until they go ordering process. So I want to goto a flat rate UPS but still use the xml tranist times from UPS.

Like everyone, I am in a competivie industry, but time is on my side, so displaying the transit times is important so I can attract anyone close to our location

Thanks for reading!

That would require custom modifications to the UPS module. Why not just add one of the Shipping Estimator Addons? That will give your customers the shipping charges in the shopping cart and/or on the individual product pages.

I figured that was the case...Do you have any suggestions for the Shipping Estimator Add-on?
