    Freight Option

    After exploring the UPS shipping module, it really looks good. It appears to be quite accurate for shipments inside the US. Does it calculate international rates from the US? Is there a way with the UPS module to flag items above a given weight or from a specific manufacturer to inform the customer that freight charges will be emailed for such items?

    Thanks. If I understood the discussion about MVS, I don't need the freight field and code that sets freight items to zero weight, right? Instead, products from certain venders are flagged for freight. Or can one choose to designate just certain products for freight shipping?

    Which version of the MVS are you suggesting? There are several versions posted in the Contributions section.

    Thanks, Jim. Your suggestion does indeed prevent the error message but with only a freight item selected, the "Continue" button does not proceed to the Payment method. When clicked, nothing happens. And adding a non-freight item to the cart then produces a message that "an error occured with the UPS shipping calculations." This will also happen if a non-freight item is the only thing in the cart or if there is a mix of freight and non-freight items. Of course, the "Continue" button does not function at point. If I disable all shipping modules within the Admin, the UPS error message does not occur and one can continue to the Payment page. But that would not be desirable for non-freight items.

    Whether I set the Tare weight and percentage Tare both to zero or comment out that section, if the only item ordered is freight and has no shipping charges, it produces an error. "An error occurred with the UPS shipping calculations." If another item is added to an order which also includes a freight item there is no problem.

    Modifying the shopping_cart.php from the includes->classes folder does indeed change the shipping charges but it appears a packaging weight is being added on the affected products. For example, 3 lbs is added to the weight of a DVD, marked as freight for testing. That weight should have been set to zero. And marking the HPLJ100 as freight changed this final weight from 49.5 lb to 3 lbs as well. Is some minimum packaging weight being added some where?

    Which file or files would need to be modified? The only script I could find that performs a query for product_weight is the shopping_cart.php but modifying this file alone does not affect any change. Is this the correct file to modify or should I be looking at another file?

    The Multi Vendor Shipping is far more involved than I need. A JavaScript driven solution I've done can determine whether each product must ship by freight and then informs the customer at checkout. If I were to add a "Freight" field to the products table, it would be possible to modify the appropriate shipping code. Which file/s would need to be modified if I plan to use the UPS shipping module for all other non-freight items? The checkout_shipping.php, the ups.php, or both?

    Custom Shipping

    My need is for a custom shipping module that combines elements of the Table Rate for both Price and Weight. The logic is the following: if (Freight == 'F') { ShipMsg = 'Freight & total charges will be emailed to you.'; } else { if (OrderTotal > 1500){ ShipChg = 0; } else { if (TotalWeight < 10) { ShipChg = 9.95; } else { ShipChg = 14.95; } I would need to add a "Freight" field along with several other fields to the appropriate products table. If I wanted to create a custom shipping module, how could I do so?
