Hi Jason, just qiuickly before I head out. would it change matters if I wasnt using "shipping country" as a basis for checking. Currently, I have all the usual data, address, town, county, postcode and country. But I am treating country like the other parts of the address. Im not using it as a basis of checking. The way im keeping it simple is that the customer would be required to realise that eg. France would be classed as Europe. USA would be classed as "Rest of the world" and the UK would be part of 1st, 2nd or recordered delivery. thats the part im trying to keep simple for my calculations - I do realise that it does make mre sense for the system to determine the condition depending on the country selected from the drop down list - that would be more solid and logical. but im just trying to simplify things for myself in removing the country value in the calculation :)

if the shipping select is happening on the checkout page and if im going to be using sessions to store the selected value - then how can I also display the cost of the shipping (remembering its based on weight of the cart total).
