    You will not get as much of a mix on shipping as you are looking for.

     

    so give up trying and just use

     

    Individual Product Shipping Prices - v1.0

    I looked into this. The problem with Individual Product Shipping Prices is that it requires me to alter the database. For some strange reason, I can't access my database in order to add the fields required. The database doesn't show up when I access it through my ISP's database control panel. I know it's there, because OSC wouldn't be working otherwise. If I can get the Zero/No Weight = Free Shipping to work right, I will have the mix on shipping I am looking for. So back to my original question, why is Zero/No Weight = Free Shipping stopping me during check-out, keeping me in the shipping screen?

  3. I needed to have some products use standard USPS shipping, while others have free shipping. I used Zero/No Weight = Free Shipping (v1.0) 12/04/2005 by Jesse Rochman. It seemed to work, but a test check-out unveiled a problem. The continue button will now not proceed past the shipping page. USPS purchases still work normally. Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks


  4. HI

     

    Can you give a e.g list of say 5-10 items and what you what to charge for del?

     

    Hi. Not sure what you are asking, here. To clarify what I need, I carry small items that will be shipped via USPS, and I also carry large items (Table Tennis Tables as an example) that require freight. I put the price of freight shipping into the items themselves using product attributes. I need these freight shipped products to NOT include any other shipping charges. I've posted a new thread asking specifically about how to do this. Thread here.


  5. OK, my problem just keeps getting more complicated. Went directly to my hosting company control panel and used their mysqladmin to try and look at the database. The problem is, it lists three of them, none of which has anything in them. Can't even find the working one (I know it's there, because OSC would not be working, otherwise.) And as far as I know, I don't have cPanel.

     

    I know enough PHP to know how to comment out, so you're not that mean. :-)

     

    As for shipping zero with usps, I'm not. The zero weight products need to be shipped flat-rate freight. Since flat rate options in shipping are not set up for my needs, I put the shipping charge in a product attribute, instead. I DO NOT want usps shipping to even come up as an option for these products, but they do anyway.

     

    I'll try commenting out the .01 line and see what happens. I'll let you know if that works.

     

    Thanks

     

    Now I get an error for USPS during checkout. It won't let me bypass it. Isn't there a way to tell OSC not to use any shipping on certain products? That would be far simpler.


  6. What I posted was a logical investigation of the problem. You can skip to the last step, see above, but by going into the db tables you will see what is stored there which will make it easier to understand osc.

     

    Now you only problem is to identify the line to comment out and how to make a line a comment. (Mean aren't I)

     

    Just had a thought, how can you ship zero wt items by usps?

  7. Have a look in the database using phpmyadmin and see what the tare wt is in the configuration table.

     

    Then check what wt is held against each product or use the display product wt idea from West One.

     

    Is either of these 0.01?

     

    No?

     

    Then go to \includes\modules\shipping\usps.php

     

    // usps doesnt accept zero weight

    $shipping_weight = ($shipping_weight < 0.1 ? 0.1 : $shipping_weight);

    $shipping_pounds = floor ($shipping_weight);

     

    Sorry, as stated above, I'm a noob at this. Never dealt with online databases. Where do I find phpmyadmin and how do I use it? Is there an access in OSC that I'm missing?

     

    Do you have a link to West One's idea for product wt display that you referred to?

     

    Lastly, not sure what you wanted me to do with the code you listed above. Found the file and code easily enough. Do I need to change it somehow? Strange that OSC opens the shipping module with a 0 weight product. How come it doesn't do this to downloaded files?

     

    Thanks.


  8. Might be more useful to look at the tare wt setting in Configuration >> Shipping / Packaging

     

    It was the setting TARE weight that added 5 lbs. Set that to 0, now it is only adding .01 lbs. This is still a problem, though. I have items that have to be shipped by freight, and I put that as individual product options. I need USPS to ignore 0 weight products. What do I need to do now?


  9. Hi

     

    then it is not the core osC but the USPS module so look over the file it uses and the sql has it must be h/code in some where?

     

    also try putting on this

     

    Configuration >> Product Listing >> Display Product Weight

     

    then look at Categories Product Listing in the front end and see if it is showing 5 or not if not then it is the USPS module adding it in s/cart

     

    Added Display weight. It does show the correct weight on the site. Which files and in which folders are for the USPS module that I should be looking at? Sorry, I'm a noob at this. Thanks.


  10. I went through the entire MVS 1.1 installation process, but it doesn't seem to be working. Vendor Shipping under Shipping/Packaging is there, but when I activate it, Vendors does not appear in the Administration area. Anyone know what the issue is? Thanks.
