The e-commerce.

issues changing weight to g's rather than kg's


Recommended Posts

Mighty grand contribution indeed. I seem to be by myself in wanting to change the weight from kg's to g's. I have updated the pricing as per the installation instructions, so instead of;




mine now reads


100:1.57,250:2.20 etc etc etc


I have all the shipping methods except citylink installed.


Now, when i try to check out, with a product that weighs 115, and with a postal address in UK, the only method i am presented with is ParcelForce48 with a cost of £14.25 - when i look at the parcel force costs, the entries are;




All the other shipping methods;

RM First Class Standard




RM First Class Recorded




Now, to throw a curveball into the matter - when i change the postal address to a USA address, i get AIRMAIL calculated correctly at £2.48 - heres the airmail rates;

Zone 2 Shipping Table





I have a fairly clean install of oscommerce, i don't have any other contributions affecting shipping or checkout.


If anyone is familiar with the construct of this contribute, perhaps they could suggest where i should start looking to bug hunt this one. If anyone else has changed the weighing from kg's to g's and it has worked without issues, please let me know.
