eCart shipping error

eCart shipping error

Hi
I have setup the shipping rule in the ecart, see image, and set the shipping for $25 per item ( quite heavy items). When I test this ordering one item , the shipping charge in the cart shows up as $200 and no matter what I do, it doesn't change. I have attached the cart code in a text file.
Thanks

add a copy of the WA_eCart/dreamz_PHP.php file to a zip archive and attach that to your replay so I can examine the cart object code.

ow would you like to configure the air shipping rule? How much will air shipment cost? What should trigger the air shipment rule to be applied?

Well, I would have to have a user selection of some sort, probably on the checkout page in the form of a list box or radio buttons. That selection then should trigger the shipping rule. I don't want to mess up the cart that's working nicely now so how do I go about this? I mean how would the selection get to the shipping rule?
Thanks

first, add a checkbox for air shipping to the checkout page:
<input name="airShip" type="checkbox" id="airShip" value="1" />


next, on the confirm page, add a new hidden form element to the collection that already exists near the confirm button, use the same name as the cehckbox and capture the value from the cehckout page:
<input name="airShip" type="hidden" id="airShip" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["airShip"]))?$_POST["airShip"]:"") ?>" />

then also on the confim page, add a set session value behavior, on the server behaviors tab, click the plus button and select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value.

Select Any form, post for the trigger, set the name to "airShip", clickc the lightning bolt next to value and select the airShip form element.


to create the airShip shipping rule, set the trigger to:
If Session Variable "airShip" Exists

AND
Based on session Variable value
If the session variable "airShip" has a value of "1"
