Shipping Modules - Zone Based

Recommended Posts

I am a new osCommerce user based in the UK and have limited technical ability. There do not seem to be any pre-set shipping modles suitable for UK users (such as Royal Mail). I sell products of different weights to all round the world. My shipping charges therefore need to be weight based and zone based.

 

There is a zone based shipping system which I could use were it not for the fact I only seem to be able to set up one shipping zone model. I need to be able to set up different weight based shipping tables to different shipping zones: such as UK, Europe, USA & Canada, All Other Countries.

 

I see I can, for example,use Zone based shipping for UK and Table based shipping for all other countries, but that is still not giving me accurate enough shipping calculations.

 

I would be most grateful for any help.

Go to the 'Contributions' link at the top of the forum pages and search for Royal Mail -- you should find a few options.

Thanks for your help Terry.

That royal module has bugs. You can view the problems people are facing by using it by going to its support forums.

I also need royal mail shipping methods. After some search and reading, I came to know ( i might be wrong ) that I can use the Additional Shipping Zones contribution in some way to get my task done. Not too sure, but I'll give it a try. Again Royal mail module is buggy.

You can try the state based rates contrib.

 

I use two versions to provide ground and air rates for 11 regions in north america.

It says state based, but your regional can be any regional grouping you choose.
