The e-commerce.

Different shipping method for categories?


Recommended Posts



Am I the only one who finds it very confusing wrapping my head around the shipping methods in oscommerce?


Basically I have two main categories, which have 3-4 subcategories each. I want to have two different shipping methods for each category, which should automatically include the subcategories (for each relevant category).


In Category #1 I would like for it to automatically use Flat Rate.

In Category #2 I would like it to use the contribution First Item Plus Additional (or something similar).


Now here comes my question, what if the customer buys one product from each category? Is the shipping method I am suggesting possible, if so, is there a contribution or a simle modification that could get the job done?


Any help is appreciated,

From frustrated oscommerce-user. :lol:

Thanks for the link, I'll have to check that out. By the way, do you know if it works with Easy Populate (very important for me)?


I don't see why not, although you may have to modify it slightly. I'm sure many others have done so already, it may even be in the contributions section somewhere.

Do, or do not. There is no try.
