    State Based Region Shipping Rates

    Make sure that everything is set correctly under "configuration/Shipping & Packaging/" make sure the following are set correctly: Enter the Maximum Package Weight you will ship..... Package Tare weight..... Larger packages - percentage increase..... It sounds like you have values entered here or at least the wrong values. Also, i will no longer provide forum support for this or any of my contributions under this user name "billythekid", I will close this accout and strickly use my "nezah.net" account. I will still provide support and answer questions as best and often as i can, but only under username "nezah.net" Jorge Suarez

    State Based Region Shipping Rates

    If you are familiar with the zone defining in the zone base, i don't see why it should not work. However, eveyhing must be done right. As far as the "The Shipping Rate can not be calculated at this time" message. I really seems that you have another module enabled, but not configured. That error is not an output of the module, so either you have a misconfigured module or you have some corrution with your oscommerce installation.

    This is seems like you have another module misconfigured. This error is not being displayed but my Regions Based Rates shipping module. Maybe you have a UPS module installed and misconfigured. I also see that your are entering city names in the zone fields. Because cities are not defined in the zones base, cities cannot be supported. You have to entere States and/or Countries.

    Its sounds like you have a value for the "Package Tare weight" option. Go to Administration -> Configuration -> Shipping/Packcaging -> and set "Package Tare weight" to 0. For some reason its defaulted to 3. Let me know if this helps. Jorge Suarez

    State Based Region Shipping Rates

    I have gone through this message thread, the official thread for the regions based rates shipping module, and have takeb into considration the suggestions and feature requests people have for this already great shipping module. ..... ...........3 hours of programming later...........

State Based Rates Shipping Module ------------------------------------------ Target: osCommerce 2.2-CVS (with new checkout procedure) Version: 4.0 Release Date: 22 December 2004 License: GPL Author: Jorge Suarez billythekid_2000@hotmail.com TOC: Changes Installation Usage Features Limitations Contact Changes: ------------- 1. changed "per item" feature to "# of items." (x:y.yy), where "x" is the number of items and "y.yy" is the shipping fee to charge. 2. added "percentage" support. Lets you calculate shipping fee based on a percentage of the total price. (x.xx:y), where "x.xx" is the order price and "y" is the percentage (of the total price) to charge as the shipping fee to charge.

Installation: ------------- THIS MODULE CAN BE MODIFIED FURTHER, NEW MODULES CAN BE CREATED, AND/OR OTHER OSCOMMERCE MODIFICATIONS CAN BE MADE FOR A SMALL FEE. MY CONTACT INFO IN AT THE BUTTON OF PAGE This module does not overwrite any existing file. It is therefore safe to just copy the complete directory structure over your existing one. If your osCommerce installation does not have the default directory layout you will have to copy all the files to the appropriate places. Once the files are in place you should be able to switch the module on through Administration -> Modules -> Shipping -> Region Based Rates (green button) If you want to assign different States to the groups you can do so through the Admin. Be warned: Once the module is switched off again it will default to the original setup upon activation again. You will have to assign your groups / prices again. If you want to increase the number of regions after the module has been installed and enabled, your must: 1. Disabled the module 2. Edit the file 3. Re-enable the module. Usage: ------ This shipping module allows you to create groups of country states(regions) and assign a shipping price to such a region. A region can be composed of a single state/country or of any number of states/countries. A region can also contain states from multiple countries, and can contain a combination of countries and states. You have the choice to calculate the shipping cost based on the total price of the order or the total weight or on 3 of items of the order. Features: --------- 1..Regions can be composed of States and/or Countries. 2..Regions include any number states/countries (one or more). 3..Regions can include state of different countries. For example, you can have a region that included Texas and the northern States or Mexico. 4..Order weight, price, # of items, or percentage (of the total price) can be used to calculate shipping cost. 5..Any number of regions. 6..Handling fee can be added.

    Why can't I change this dropdown?

    Did you ever figured this out? ______________________________________________________________ I am trying to change the product name to either product model or product id or (preferably) to add either model or id to the dropdown that is drawn for adding new featured products, as it is very difficult to identify the desired product simply from the product name. The current dropdown shows -> Product Name (Price) Can anyone give me a hint on why changing the following references for "products_name" to either "products_id" or "products_model" don't cause the dropdown that is diplayed to show one of those fields when they are all being selected in the query? CODE <form name="new_feature" <?php echo 'action="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_FEATURED, tep_get_all_get_params(array('action', 'info', 'sID')) . 'action=' . $form_action, 'NONSSL') . '"'; ?> method="post"><?php if ($form_action == 'update') echo tep_draw_hidden_field('featured_id', $HTTP_GET_VARS['sID']); ?> <td><br><table border="1" bordercolor="green" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2"> <tr> <td class="main"><?php echo TEXT_FEATURED_PRODUCT; ?> </td> <td class="main"><?php echo ($sInfo->products_name) ? $sInfo->products_name : tep_draw_products_pull_down('products_name', 'style="font-size:10px"', $featured_array); echo tep_draw_hidden_field('products_price', $sInfo->products_price); ?></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="main"><?php echo TEXT_FEATURED_EXPIRES_DATE; ?> </td> <td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('day', substr($sInfo->expires_date, 8, 2), 'size="2" maxlength="2" class="cal-TextBox"') . tep_draw_input_field('month', substr($sInfo->expires_date, 5, 2), 'size="2" maxlength="2" class="cal-TextBox"') . tep_draw_input_field('year', substr($sInfo->expires_date, 0, 4), 'size="4" maxlength="4" class="cal-TextBox"'); ?><a class="so-BtnLink" href="java script:calClick();return false;" onmouseover="calSwapImg('BTN_date', 'img_Date_OVER',true);" onmouseout="calSwapImg('BTN_date', 'img_Date_UP',true);" onclick="calSwapImg('BTN_date', 'img_Date_DOWN');showCalendar('new_feature','dteWhen','BTN_date');return false;"><?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES .
