Extracting shipping information from database

David Hooker

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be posting this, so if there's a better one please let me know.


I am trying to extract ordering information from the backend database, but I don't know where to extract the ID of the order's shipping method. I can get the text from orders_total, but there doesn't seem to be any record of the ID.


Also, if anyone could tell me about any guide to schema of the database, that would be great!

Hi David, the shipping method is in fact not tracked. You can add a new column for future orders to the orders table "shipping method" and fill in the method (or what info about shipping you need) during the checkout_process


I had the need for this for a client before, and this is a very straightforward approach to get this info.




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