    Zone 1 Shipping Table

    You have to change the structure of the configuration table in the DB. It is set to VARCHAR which can only accept up to 255 variable characters. I just ran into this problem and I used shipping intervals of 5 lbs up to 100 lbs and then used shipping intervals of 10 lbs up to 150 lbs. This brought me in under 255. Look at the difference in price between weight intervals. It is not that much. If this won't work for you I suppose you could change the DB structure to something like CHAR and give it a larger value. HOwever, I"m not sure this won't F up all the other configuration values that use that field. Bon Chance!

    MZMT

    Hi Chris, That's what I figured. That is what I have done for the USA. However, it was much easier as there are only 7 UPS shipping zones in the USA and each state only belongs to a maximum of 3 zones, normally only 2 zones. The difference in shipping cost is much less than that of Ontario or Quebec that belong to as many as 12 of 13 UPS shipping zones. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Shipping Modules Opinion

    Hi, Can anyone give me their opinion on what is the best add-on shipping module for OS 2.X? Thanks in advance.

    MZMT

    Hi, I'm hoping there are a few people who have installed this module and are shipping within Canada. My question... How do you set up a table(s) for provinces like Ontario which is part of more than one shipping zone? For instance, shipping to northern Ontario from Toronto is far more expensive than shipping to Hamilton or Burlington. So how do I reflect this in a table. The only answer i can come up with is to build a shipping table the uses only the most expensive shipping rates. Thanks in advance.

    Hey Dan, Thanks again for your help. It is pretty straight forward. My problem was that I did not have the sql file installed therefore I didn't have any configuration. ~Jamie

    MultiGeoZone MultiTable Shipping

    Hey Dan, I found the HTML help. I guess I downloaded one of the updates that didn't include the html help/set up file. I'm going to give it a go this weekend. I should be able to figure it out now. Thanks again for your help. ~Jamie

    MultiGeoZone MultiTable Shipping

    Hey Dan, OK, I'm trying really hard to figure this out. I'll explain it to you as I understand it. 1. I go into exactly "Locations / Taxes" > "Tax Zones". 2. There I create as many new folders as I would like shipping zones. Such as SHP:ONT, SHP:BC, SHP:QC, SHP:USA-FLA, SHP:USA-CA, etc. 3. I then open those folders, one by one, and choose the the correct country and zone. NOTE: If I would like to add several states/provinces to one shipping zone I might call the sipping zone "SHP:USA-CA,UT,NV and then "insert" those zones within that folder. Correct? 4. Now, this is where I am stuck. I don't know where to go from here. Do I now navigate to "modules > shipping"? When I get there, if this is correct, in what module do I configure the shipping tables? For example, MultiGeoZone MultiTable, Table Rate or Zone Rates. I will need to have a different table for each province where the shipping cost changes based on weight. Thanks in advance for all your help. Once I get this sorted I'm going to write up a document detailing the process. I'm sure many people would like to see it. ~Jamie

    MultiGeoZone MultiTable Shipping

    Hey Dan, I'm sort of confused here. I have set up taxes so that different taxes are applied to different provinces, however, can I set up a table rate shipping method for each province using the way you suggest? I need shipping cost to vary based on weight and province. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. Jamie

    Hey Dan, I seem to be able to only have a table for the US and Canada. How do I go about creating shipping tables for each province? Thanks in advance. Jamie
