i spoke to the client and she stated that she does need the delivery costs showing on the checkout page as well as which option to chose. So could you confirm my workflow in terms of logic.....
1. On the checkout page create a recordset for deliverycosts
2. create 5 on-page-load session variables (5 sessions = 2nd class, 1st class, recorded, international, rest fo world) - the above session variables would contain the value from the ecart shipping rules based on weight calculation.
3. create a 6th session variable that will store what every delivery option the customer choses on the checkout page (this is set on form post).
4. in the ecart shipping rules I would need to create rules for each of the 5 delivery options.
im trying to work out how i would organsise the database structure (this is why i thought it be best to have 5 different tables for each delivery option: as the structure would not only contain the weight differences as fields but also the delivery options.
am i on th eright track at all?
