Need help with shipping modules


Recommended Posts

My requirement is to have free shipping over $50 and a flat shipping charge of $5 below $50. I installed both free shipping module and flat rate module. Depending upon the order amount, a shipping module is displayed and it seems to be working ok.

The problem is when the order amount is changed.

Select items for less than $50. Flat rate of $5 gets displayed. Go next to payment page. Click on Edit to add items making total more than $50. When you go next to shipping/delivery page, both shipping options get displayed with flat rate radio button selected. If the customer doesn't check and change to free shipping, $5 gets charged.

1. Is it possible not to display shipping option(s) at all and have some backend processing to charge or not to charge shipping based on order amount?

2. If (1) above requires lot of coding changes, how do I make sure that the right radio button gets selected based on amount?

I need similar thing, one way to do it is to change in admin the sort order of the modules so that free will be on top.


I used the free shipping w/ minimum amount module but i've had that division by zero error since i first started and i can't make any progress.

I do not normally use the free shipping module. I add 2 flat rates instead and have a check in each file for what total they are valid to show. Only one of the modules will only ever show with this method.




addicted to writing code ... can't get enough of databases either, LOL!

Thanks for the replies.

I found another contribution,"Multiple shipping costs based on order total" that just takes care of my requirement. It allows 3-tiered shipping charges based on order total. I used 2-tiers and it worked perfect.

Thanks again,
