Free shipping by categories

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to prevent the list of categories (not the title) appearing on the checkout page and invoice.

 

As I have a few categories that I allow Free shipping from it makes the page look very busy.

Its fine on the shipping page, but dont really want it on the invoice or checkout.

 

Thanks

I haven't started a topic for it so you've done it, right.

 

Your question - generally - no, this is the same text taken from $module->title and it's can be changed only on all places at once. You can think of something tricky here but will have to code it yourself.

hmmm, how about:

 

1) A (configurable) option to only show the first x characters of $module->title ?

 

2) To split the one variable of text + category names into two variables that are joined? Or someway of not requiring cat_names to be displayed.

 

3) Some other clever option....

 

I managed to split of the cats by removing the variable cat_names, but then the page after failed as it was ecpecting that variable to be passed....

 

umm, I need to learn php.. :)

This is a very useful contrib.

 

I'm using this as i want the users to be able to order samples and not to charge them delivery. It only gives them the option of free shipping if everything in their basket is within a specific category. But it then goes to the payment page and still asks them for their credit card details.

 

Is there any quick way of doing the same thing on the payment page, where if they've only ordered from the specific category, that they could choose the appropriate option so they won't have to type in their cc number, then this gets omitted when they order something from a different category; basically working exactly the same as the delivery method.

 

I think this is the only thing that's missing from an otherwise excellent contrib.

Hi,

 

I have this contribution installed but I have the same problem as the previous poster suggested.

If the customer happens to buy a product that qualifies for free shiping together with others that don't, they get a free shipping for all.

 

How can this be fixed?

Many Thanks

Having the same issues, which makes this contribution useless when products from selected free categories are purchased with products that do not qualify for free shipping.

 

I'm not a php coder, so it would be great if someone could pick up the ball on this one. There doesn't seem to be any other contribution out there to handle the exclusion of certain products from free shipping.

Hi,

 

I just installed this wonderful contrib. It works fine expept for one thing.

 

I made the follwing setup:

 

Deduct shipping weight if Mixed Cart : No

All or One : One

Only or Any : Only

 

So the idea is to get free shipping for baskets containing only products from the selected categories. Right?

 

Although, the problem is I do have only products from the selected categories in my basket, but there is no Free shipping available. I get free shipping when selecting "Any" for Only or Any setting, but this of course will alow free shipping for baskets containing also products not from the selected categories only. Any ideas?

 

Thanks for your help.

I have installed and configured the free shipping by categories with Google Checkout compatibility added by redearthdesign. Everything seems good, but in the shipping options under the Google Checkout module, it says "Free Shipping freecats not configured!"

 

Any thoughts?
