Default Shipping Unit

Default Shipping Unit

The unit of weight to be used for shipping is set as Grams, Kilograms, Ounces, or Pounds.

 

In my store there isn't a field for Default Shipping Unit.

Can anyone tell me where to find this? We use lbs and I can only imagine it is using this as its method?

 

We currently have as price based...so does the Default Shipping Unit field show up when we go to weight based?

i had to do a similar thing for zones. i did the following:

 

catalog>incudes>languages>modules>shipping

 

opened zones.php and changes this under MODULE_SHIPPIN_ZONES_UNITS' (4th line down in code.).

*/

 

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_TITLE', '');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_DESCRIPTION', 'Zone Based Rates');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_WAY', 'Shipping to');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_UNITS', 'lbs');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_INVALID_ZONE', 'No shipping available to the selected country');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_UNDEFINED_RATE', 'The shipping rate cannot be determined at this time');

?>

 

and removed the 'lbs' so the code looks like this:

*/

 

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_TITLE', '');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_DESCRIPTION', 'Zone Based Rates');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_WAY', 'Shipping to');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_UNITS', '');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_INVALID_ZONE', 'No shipping available to the selected country');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_UNDEFINED_RATE', 'The shipping rate cannot be determined at this time');

?>

 

it removed the 'lbs' notation only. i still get the amount of the weight. working on masking that.

I t seems that the Default Shipping Unit mentioned in the Knowledge Base dos not exist in the current version of OSC, but will be in the next relese.

So use the abbove info that i found. someone had kindly posted

 

I did this:

goto

catalog>incudes>languages>english>modules>shipping >zones.php
