Limit Shipping Methods


skyylar

Recommended Posts

I would like to limit the shipping methods offered to only a few of both USPS and UPS. For example, only offer UPS services like Ground and 3 day instead of Ground, 3 day, 2 day, Next, etc. How do I control what methods are given as options? I'm very new to php so could someone tell me what files and what areas of the files I need to edit in order to accomplish this-providing it's possible in the first place? Any help is greatly appreciated!

You should first start by going to the admin panel (yourdomain/admin/index.php) and looking at the modules section where there are the shipping modules. You can enable and/or disable whichever ones you want or don't want.

 

Also, there's some documentation you should first be reading before you try to make any changes http://www.oscommerce.info/docs/english/c_...ation_tool.html

Thanks but I've already tried both of those suggestions. I have UPS and USPS enabled, but I would like to choose which delivery methods of each service is offered as an option on my site. I use a dropship service for most of the products I'll be offering and they only offer a limited number of delivery methods, like UPS Ground only and USPS Priority Mail only. I want to offer only the delivery methods they offer me, so as to not charge my customers too much or too little for shipping. Also, I don't want them to have the option of "next day delivery" and getting charged some huge amount, when that's not really an option that's available to them since it's not available to me by my vendors. So, is it possible to use only a few methods of delivery from UPS and USPS or am I stuck having the entire list of services they offer showing up during checkout?

Look in the contributions for addtional shipping modules. Not sure about USPS but I know there is a UPS module that will allow you to choose which shipping options to make available to your customers

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! You did backup, right??

Thank you so much! I checked the contributions and found one for both carriers. They work wonderfully! It was exactly what I wanted. For anyone else interested, the names are UPS Choice and USPS Methods.

 

Thanks again!

Are you integrating this into an environment such as MVS (ie MultiVendor Shipping)? Just curious, as we are doing a heavy amount of mod work to output the various shipping methods and their respective calculations during shipping checkout. Essentially, it will map out and allow ability to choose the expedited method on a per product basis.

Hi, I'm needing to a similar thing. We ship some products using Canada Post, and we drop ship others from a supplier in the USA that ships via UPS. I need my site to be able to calculate UPS rates for USA to USA shipments. My Canada Post module is installed and working already, so I just need to get a UPS Module to lookup UPS Rates.
