The e-commerce.

shipping modules


Recommended Posts

I need a shipping system that will equate shipping fees based on weight and shipping zones as set by the United States Postal Service. Is there a way to manipulate the shipping modules so that it will figure this automatically? I've already got multiple zones set up, but I'm not sure how it would be able to figure all this out automatically. I don't know of anyone who knows what shipping zone they live in, so providing at as an option seems a bit fruitless.


Any suggestions would be much loved.

If I am not mistaken the USPS shipping module included with osCommerce does real time rate lookups based on weight and shipping address. This would probably be your best bet.


If you need to include insurance in the rate quote, there is a contribution that enables that. And there are several other contributions that modify various aspects of its operation. Just search the contributions for "USPS".



Rule #1: Without exception, backup your database and files before making any changes to your files or database.

Rule #2: Make sure there are no exceptions to Rule #1.
