Ship to lower 48 only

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to figure out how to do this. I need to ship to only the lower 48 states and each item has a flat rate for it, based on the item.

 

Example: Jet Ski #1 cover will cost $5 in shipping and Jet Ski #2 will cost $8, but again this based on just the lower 48 states.

 

If they are in Alaska or Hawaii or outside of the states it needs to prompt them to call in the order. I have read over the publications for Zones and that doesn't seem to be the answer. Any help would be appreciated.

problem is the cart has no way to know if the customer is outside of the lower 48 until they begin the checkout process and provide you with that data. you could always remove the states of hawaii and alaska from the create account process which will pretty much force them to contact you. you could write a policy around this to explain.

 

that's how we deal with it. We offer flat rate shipping fee's with the disclaimer that it's for the lower 48 only. Outside the 48 they need to contact us as you can't ship ground to Hawaii and some items that are heavy or bulky would be cost prohibitive to ship anyways. Most of the folks in Hawaii and Alaska I do business with recognize this and are used to having to pay extra for shipping.

Do you have your's setup to where each item has a different shipping rate? If so, how is that done?

 

The lower 48 is really the secondary issue for me, as you mentioned the quick fix is just to remove Alaska and Hawaii, which was my thought. I am more concerned over how to get the shipping to a flat rate for each individual item. They will all have different flat rates.

we use a modified version of the individual shipping contribution. allows you to set a 2 shippings prices per item. the 1st is the original shipping price while the 2nd is the incremental cost for each additional item...something like that. we been using it for a couple of years so a little fuzzy and what it does and how we had to fix it for out business.
