Hi All,

 

I did a search but couldn´t find anything related to it, please forgive me if this has already been discussed.

 

I need for oscommerce to show the total price (products+taxt+shipping) before making the client log in/register, is this possible?

 

Thanks.

Well if You use individual shipping it is.

Or if itsa shiping not based on location like flat rate or table rate.

 

Tax can be shown by admin configuration for shipping either add shiping estimater or apply some code.

The problem is i NEED to use shipping by table rate, and i´m not sure what you mean on your last line.

You can add an estimate fairly easy (see below), but you can't provide factual information based on information you simply don't have.

 

You could base an guesstimate (I can't believe the spell checker accepts that word) on some arbitrary info and display something like

 

$50.00

incl. Tax & Shipping to Timbuktu

Note that Tax & Shipping may vary

 

Other than that, I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do - maybe explain a little more in detail.

That´s not good enough though, i´ll try to explain better:

 

The check out steps are as follow (correct me if i´m wrong):

 

click buy on a product

on your cart click checkout

this takes you to the login or register screen

once your´re logged in or you´ve registered it shows you the final bill (price, tax, shipping costs, total)

the next steps are irrelevant to this matter.

 

what i want to do is for the site to show the finall bill step (number 4 in the avobe list) before the login/register screen (number 3 on the avobe list). So the checkout steps i want have to be in the following order:

 

click buy on a product

on your cart click checkout

final bill (price, tax, shipping costs, total), click accept, next or whatever it says.

this takes you to the login or register screen

the next steps are irrelevant to this matter.

 

get me?

The problem is that you are trying to give them a total on charges that you don't know yet. Tax and shipping is based on location - if you don't know their location, you can't give them tax and shipping prices. You might as well ask to display their total before they select a product ...

 

The only thing I can think of is to display net and gross amounts so they can decide which applies to them and make shipping a flat fee based on price, weight, whatever and not depending on destination.

You are absolutly right, i don´t understand how i couldn´t see that.

 

Ok, so i tried using table rate, however the client is still required to log in/register before seeing the final bill.

Now that we have that settled, you should be able to build in a call to the shipping module in the shopping_cart.php to add shipping. For pointers take a look at checkout_confirmation to see how its done there.
