Custom Shipping

Hi Everyone

I am trying to create our own custom shipping without success, and no I am not a guru a total self taught amateur. So I have looked at the templates and have tried to adapt existing templates. We are looking to set up prices for a group of products in that if we have one despatched it is £20 and if it is 4 items despatched it is £25.00 etc.... Please see what i have done below. One other thought can you create more than one customised custom option. Thank you in advance. Regards Jane

Re: Custom Shipping

You're almost there.  You're having issues because you're doing text comparisons on the quantity.  Also, those curly quotes are not your friend.  Try this:

Code:

<?php

$info = $this->globals('ecom.customship');

if     ($info['quantity'] <= 1) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 20);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <= 4) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 24);}
else                            {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 35);}

$this->globals('ecom.customship_response',$custom);

?>

Re: Custom Shipping

Hi Nick

Thank you. I will give it a try. It looks totally different! Not sure what you mean by curly quotes though.
Is there any way I can find about some of this php stuff to help me out?

Thanks again regards Jane.

Re: Custom Shipping

Hi Nick

I have been playing around with the custom shipping and have found that a value based shipping may be better (see below). But either way, is there a way, when reaching an order quantity/value that the shipping costs are referred back to seller e.g. a statement such as 'Price on Application for orders over a certain value/quantity' and the ability of the system not allowing the order to process and for the system to send an email?

Thanks Jane

Re: Custom Shipping

Still thinking of limiting shipment of an order if doesn't meet certain criteria.  If I was to set the maximum weight - found under store>component>settings>shipping setting>Maximum Combined Package Weight. would this work, I have tried it but it doesn't appear to work! is this because I am using a custom shipping method?
Thanks and regards

Re: Custom Shipping

Put this on the end:

Code:

} else {

     $custom = array('Price on Application for orders over a certain value/quantity' => 0);

Re: Custom Shipping

Hi Nick
Thank you, once again, I have tried this and it works. The only thing it reads 'Price on Application for orders over 11 items. - FREE'  the thing is it won't be free, I don't want it to ship at all without a price been given for the carriage. Also I put in a weight under the set maximum weight - found under store>component>settings>shipping setting>Maximum Combined Package Weight, I have tried it but it doesn't appear to work! is this because I am using a custom shipping method? And finally can I put another variable in for example I have one product of this group of products which is cheaper than the rest and I would like it to be that is one of this are order it would be  despatched for  £16 so I was thinking about putting a price variable such as example below which I know doesn't work. If put one cheap item & one std item it jumps to £24 carriage which means it is ignoring the instruction for the Carriage charge of £20?

<?php

$info = $this->globals('ecom.customship');
if ($info['total'] >= '0' && $info['total'] <= '25.00') {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 16);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <=1) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 20);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <= 4) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 24);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <= 6) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 35);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <= 8) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 45);}
elseif ($info['quantity'] <= 10) {$custom = array('Standard Carrier' => 55);}
else {$custom = array('Price on Application for orders over 11 items.'=> 0);}

$this->globals('ecom.customship_response',$custom);

?>
thanks and regards

Re: Custom Shipping

There are no controls in V8 to stop an order with a shipping error.  This was added as a stock feature in K9.  V8 could be modified to do this through our custom shop, but it's a mod, not a feature for V8.  Other options would be to make the price very high and prompt a call.

Re: Custom Shipping

OK Nick

Thank you, the final question is can it not display the word Free? just the phrase 'Price on Application'
else {$custom = array('Price on Application for orders over 11 items.'=> 0);} displays as 'Price on Application for orders over 11 items. - FREE'
I assume the word 'Free' displays due to '=>0' sign?

Thanks and regards Jane

Re: Custom Shipping

Under Store / Component / Settings / Language Strings, change FREE to whatever you want.  In V8 that is only used in the shipping display.
