The e-commerce.

Help! Is such contribution available?????


Recommended Posts

I'm base in the UK and the couriers I use have divided the country into 4 zones (A, B, C and D ) according to postcode. It uses the first or the first two letters of the postcode e.g. if the postcode is EC1 then just EC or N1 then just using N. I have put the entire postcode as each separate zone on OScommerce and that took me about an hour or so as there are about 123 different one.


The company charges according to weight and it goes from 0.5kg, 1kg, 5kg, 10kg and over 10kg is charged at a fixed amount for each kilos.


There are also different shipping methods e.g. Next day, next day by noon, next day evening?etc, base on the same way but different pricing.


Is there any shipping contribution that will work for this it?

Please help!

Not likely mate.


There is very little for us inthe UK for shipping.

You could start with the hack called something like UK Post codes.

This will be a good starting point, as it shows you how to make hacks for different zones.

I needed a similar thing, here is what I did.

open in your favourite text editor catalogincludesmodulesshippingzones.php do a "find and replace" to find ZONES and replace with ZONES1 then do a "find and replace" for find zones and replace with zones1 then save the file as catalogincludesmodulesshippingzones1.php

Then open catalogincludeslanguagesenglishmodulesshippingzones.php and do the same for that.

you can then define things like


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_TITLE', 'Before noon');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES1_TEXT_TITLE', Next working Day');

and add as many copies of zone.php as you need for all the options

Obviously name the next one zones2.php etc and don't forget for each copy of catalogincludesmodulesshippingzones.php you have there must be a coresponding copy of catalogincludeslanguagesenglishmodulesshippingzones.php and if you use other language packs then a copy in that language also.


Have fun

Best wishes
