Calculating UPS shipping on the shopping cart page

Calculating UPS shipping on the shopping cart page

I am not sure if eCart can be programed to do this, but I have seen a few websites where the shipping calculations are done right on the shopping cart page itself. My website calculates the UPS shipping the confirm.php page. This annoys a few of my customers and creates hassles for myself since I cannot quickly calculate the UPS shipping charge without starting the relatively tedious checkout process. What I would like is to simply have a zip code entry field right on the shopping cart page, kind of like the way that does it.

This might not be possible with my current skill set but I am willing to pay someone to implement this on my website.

I hope someone will have some good news for me.

Thank you,

You could implement the UPS shipping quote server behavior on your cart page to get back a quote value before the user checks out. To get a proper quote though with the shipping quote server behavior you may need to provide a full ship to address rather than just a zip code. You could add a ship quote form to your cart page set the trigger for the shipping quote server behavior to be based on the submit button being pressed in this form.

You can apply this server behavior by going to Server Behaviors > eCart > shipping.
