NZ International Economy, Air and Express shipping modules

Recommended Posts

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5818

 

These three modules handle international shipping via New Zealand Post International Economy, International Air and International Express.

 

The modules automatically calculate charges for extra insurance and tracking for Economy and Air if the order value is over the free insured value (Currently $250.00), and charges for extra insurance for Express is the order value is over the free insured value (Currently $2000.00).

 

The modules calculate charges based on the formula found in the javascript at http://www3.nzpost.co.nz/nzpost/control/ratefinder, and the default values loaded are also taken from this script.

 

The configuration for the modules allows you to:

1. Change the maximum allowable weight for the shipping method

2. Exclude shoppers from certain countries from using the method (Nigeria, for instance!)

3. Change the maximum free insurance limit

4. Change the cost of extra insurance

5. Change the maximum order value allowed for a method

6. Change zone information.

 

The modules are pre-populated with all options set correctly as at 17/03/2008 - they will work out of the box, with no extra configuration.

 

The zip file has the module files stored in the correct paths relative to the osCommerce root.

 

The modules are based on the default Zones module

 

If you use them, and like them, drop me a message ;)

Unfortunately it isn't dynamic. However, it's a simple matter of changing the configurable values used in the formula.

 

 

Hi,

 

 

I have been doing runs with your excellent nz shipping module and found that my currency conversion does not change the default currency (in NZD) of the shipping costs in your module. Is there a way of fixing this?

 

 

I also noticed that for some reason, the module is not picking the correct weight of my purchased products ... do I need to change something in the code?

 

 

Cheers

Ollie
