Hi Jason, thank you so much for helping me out with. I feel like I'm getting close but I'm not getting the expected result but feel I have followed your instructions correctly.

Not sure if this makes a difference but my site is not live. I'm testing this out on my local server using MAMP.

I'm in Canada and our postal codes are in two groups - eg "L5G 3W6". The first group is the zone and the second group is the street location. The first group is what I use as my "postalZone" value. In this case "L5G".

For the purpose of getting this to work I tried using the "Shipping postal code" field exactly as is without any changes and use it to enter the "postalZone" in the text box.

As a test I create a shopping cart with a total less than the "deliverMinimum" for L5G (It shows me Sub-total, Tax and Grand Total but no line for Shipping) and hit "checkout" taking me to the checkout page. I then type "L5G" in the text box for "Shipping postal code" and hit "checkout" taking me to the confirm page. What I expect to see at this point is a "shipping" line to appear adding the "deliveryRate" for L5G.

There is no change that includes the shipping on the order confirmation.

I noticed that one of the instructions you gave for the eCart reads:

"Subtotal For the entire Cart Contents"
If the Subtotal price for the cart is '<' a value of '$_SESSION['deliveryRate']'

Correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't it be: '$_SESSION['deliveryMinimum']'?

I tried it both ways with the same result. I noticed that the eCart object shows no columns or calculations for Shipping.

I also tried both "store in Session" and "store in Cookie".

Any suggestions?

Thanks again for your help.
