Complete UK Shipping Module Mow Available

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have just released my first ever contribution and I got working on it, as I was fed up of not having a properly supported set of complete UK modules for the Royal Mail.

 

Now I have done them all. I would appreciate it if anyone would care to post comment, if you find these useful, or of course, if there are any bugs!

Hi

The rates for the standard parcel module are in g and the rest are in Kg as far as I can see. May confuse some people as it would not return the correct postage costs depending upon wether you weigh in g or kg.I have changed all mine to g. Its simple to change. Other than that its a very good contribution.

I have also noticed that royal mail recorded rates don't include the extra 66p it costs and are just the same as the first class rates.

Just installed and when I get to the shipping page when placing an order I get this option is not available.

 

I am asuming its to do with how I set the weight for that product?

 

Can some tell (as if explaing it to a five year old) what I should actually put in the weight box of a prdouct.

I.E

 

I have a product that weighs 500g

how do I put that in to the weight box is it

500

0.500

0.5

 

do i need to add letters after the weight too I.E

500g

0.500kg

0.kg

 

Sorry to be dumb but I cant help it :(

Hi

I recommend weighing in grams and redoing the shipping rates for this as some of the modules are in g and some in kg.as in my previous posts - so change all the first class / second class and any other that has weight as a decimal place to g. i.e. 1:3.65, is the same as 1000:3.65. and 0.06:.3, is the same as 60:.3,.

dont add g or anything anywhere.

If the item weighs 500 grams just put 500, if it weighs 10kg pit 10000

I will post my updated rates later on and am halfway through doing the correct recorded prices so you can copy and paste.

The reason no postage option will show up is simply because of this-well i am pretty sure that is the only problem.

Oh and plus the Royal mail standard parcel compensation is only ?30 as standard not ?500-that is extra.

 

It automatically adds more shipping to cover the extra insurance depending on the value of what is in the shopping cart.... A little feature I forgot to mention!

If you open the spreadsheet, the rates for recorded are all in there.

 

I must have forgot to amend.

 

I have done it in Kgs as I ship heavy items, the spreadsheet can fix that for you, if you amend it there.

So would this be correct for recorded delivery?

60:.96,100:1.12,150:1.3,200:1.45,250:1.6,300:1.73,350:1.87,400:2.06,450:2.25,500:2.44,600:2.81,700:3.18,750:3.37,800:3.56,900:3.93,1000:4.30,1250:5.18,1500:6.06,1750:6.94,2000:7.82

 

I have also changed its name from Royalmail Registered to Recorded :D that much I figured out how to do my self :D

 

Also do you know if there is a way to remove a certaion class of shipping if the order value is over a certain amount?

 

For example Royal mail rec delivery only insures to a value of ?25. If a customer has over ?30 worth of items in their trolley would it be possible to remove rec delivery as an option? I have put a comment in at the moment that its not recomended for orders over ?25.

Shaun,

 

If you want to set a maximum order value, so the shipping module turns off after a certain amount is in the shopping cart, it can be done like this:

 

1. Open the file for the class of postage you want to turn off.

(In this example I will use 1st class and turn it off after ?30.....)

 

2. Locate the line:

 

ff ($order->info['total'] > 250) {

 

3. replace this line with:

 

ff ($order->info['total'] > 30) {

 

4. Save and re-upload.

 

 

of course, you can do this in all modules, some are set differently anyway, so just search for:

 

ff ($order->info['total']

 

In each one and you will find the area where you can change the maximum.

 

I hope you all like this, I must admit, this is my first ever contribution, so it may be a little rusty around the edges. Later I will update the download pacage to include both spreadsheets for grams and kilograms, so you can copy and paste the strings as necessary. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with on this.

Also, if any of you have any sites running the module, I would love to see it in action somewhere else, if you could let me know, by PM if you prefer.

 

One of my sites where you can see it is: http://www.plasmex.co.uk

Very strange, as the contribution should not touch any of that. I have just done a tester on my site and it seem to work there. are you running standard OSC or CRE Loaded?
