Modifying Shipping Charge Based Session Varible

Thread began 6/25/2015 12:35 am by djellis267466 | Last modified 6/25/2015 11:18 am by djellis267466 | 345 views | 1 replies


Modifying Shipping Charge Based Session Varible

I need to change the shipping charge based on a UK postcode. There will only be two rates of charge "normal" and then a higher charge.

I have built the logic for checking the postcode and determining which one should incur the higher change. I am then setting a session variable for these postcodes. If the session variable exists then the higher charge should be made.

For a number of reasons (happy to discuss in a private message) I want to the above by having an extra if statement in the eCart object. I am using the PHP below but this always gives the lower charge.

The session variable is called $_SESSION["remote"]. I have tried to ensure that the session variable exists before calling a page that displays the cart and allows the customer to confirm the transaction.

Can you see what might be going wrong ? Many thanks !

//eCart Rule DJE modified for remote postcodes using session variable
function WAEC_ShippingCharge() {
$totalCharge = 0;
if (((sizeof($this->Items) >= 1)) && ((isset($_SESSION['$_SESSION[\"remote\"]'])))) {
$totalCharge += 15.00;//Result
else {
$totalCharge += 7.50;//Result
return WA_eCart_FormatNumber($totalCharge, $this->ForceDecimalsC, $this->DecimalPlacesC);
//eCart Rule
