Looooking for help regarding shipping cost


Recommended Posts



I have a hard time wondering how to be able to get different shipping prices for different items from different locations to different locations...


Basically, I could use Canada Post (I live in Canada) but I do not have all the items in stock at my home. I use drop-shipping from USA.


So, what to do? If I set a single rate fee, I will have trouble because shipping in USA or in Canada is not the same. Also, I deal with companies who cannot ship to Canada at all...


What I'd like would be:


- Each item can be sent only to specific countries with specific prices;

- Since I use drop-shipping my "location" is not the same for each item...


Anybody has any idea what to do? Am I the only one from Canada using dropshipping with osCommerce?

Thank you!

Another thing... I tried to set the "per item" rate but Paypal only takes the sub-total and do not consider the osCommerce shipping cost I added. Sure, I could use Paypal's own shipping cost options, but then it is not shown in osCommerce and it looks awful...


This is really a mess... Can hardly believe how complicated this is...

I tried to install auctionblox program but when I try to install it here is the message I get:


Warning: main(includes/application_top.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/louisp/domains/chezlouis.ca/public_html/catalog/admin/auctionblox.php on line 11


Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'includes/application_top.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/louisp/domains/chezlouis.ca/public_html/catalog/admin/auctionblox.php on line 11


Any idea?


Is it possible that this is due because I installed osCommerce in /catalog directory instead of putting it right on my site?


Please help!
