Power Store 3 and eCart - Flat Rate Shipping

Could someone from the tech support team please explain how I would use eCart to have flat rate shipping available with my Power Store 3 store? (Please step-by-step on this on how to integrate the two products.)

Many Thanks!

to use eCart to modify power store, you first need to make sure that the PowerStore files are at the root of your Dreamweaver Site.

Once you have the PowerStore Files at the root of the Dreamweaver site, open the cart.php page, then go to Window -> Server Behaviors.

In the list of server Behaviors, double click the Cart Object to edit it.


Go to the shipping tab. You can remove the existing shipping rules if you are not going to use them, then add a new shipping rule.

If it is going to be a true flat rate shipping rule, set the trigger to number of unique items greater than 0, and add your flat rate cost.

Is there a way to have the shipping rule apply to just one particular product? Or are they site wide?

For example - I want to use the USPS flat rate box to ship some items in my catalog, but others I'd just as well use their weight calculator for shipping.

This would require hand coding php to accomplish, it would not be a simple task.


you would need to add a new column to the product table to mark which items where flat rate. You could call this column flatRate and set the value to 1 for flat rate items and 0 for non flat rate items. you would set the weight for these items to be 0.

you would also need to add this column to the cart object, and edit the add to cart buttons to bind the new cart column to the recordset column.

then you would need to add a new shipping rule for the flat rate items. Using the Items with specific column value trigger you could use the new flatRate column to check if there are any items in the cart where flatRate is equal to one.


For the calculation, use the Based on items with a specific value. I am sending a screen shot to demonstrate how to configure this.


you will need to edit the trigger for the shipping rate lookup code by hand to only trigger if weight of the items in the cart is greater than 0.
