still trying ....

Hi Ray,

Okay here are two issues I am still trying to figure out. If possible I can grasp this if explained step by step, then I can understand the big pciture :)

The setup: Someone goes to the site and they can purchase from the following categories -flowers, furniture, accessories

Flowers are for the local LA area only and delivered by a private service ONLY.
Furniture and Accessories are delivered by UPS only.

The user must register/login to purchase.

In the registration form there is a drop down for the local LA cities if they live in that area. I set that as a session of FlowerDeliveryArea and it is a numeric value pulling from a FlowerDeliveryCharge table. That table also contains the Fee for the delivery charge.

So they are a LA resident and they purchase flowers and they live in Venice and the fee for delivery is $15.00.

When they add this to the cart I want it to be a CHARGE instead of shipping so in the cart object under CHARGES I have the name FlowerCharge. The first condition is

Based on Session variable value.
If the value of the session variable FlowerDeliveryCharge is > than a value of 0

Now how do I pull the fee from the Delivery Charge table? Depending on the city the fee could be different.

Also, how do I prevent UPS from getting a shipping quote for the flowers category? I only want UPS to quote for Furniture and Accessories.

Thanks and I appreciate your efforts on this. I will get it sooner or later!
