Where & how to put type of shipping choice

I'm configuring eCart5 to show a choice of UPS shipping types using their API. I can see how to input this using "Snippets" but can't get it to work. Do I delete the default shipping info on the cart page and then put the UPS shipping choice snippet on the bottom of the checkout page?

Got it. Just put the UPS snippet on the checkout page at the top of the shipping details.

How would you do the same process with Powerstore

I have powerstore 3 and dont know how to configure the Federal Express shipping.
I have all the account info in the admin settings page, now what?

In the admin area within the settings you need to select the shipping tab and check the box to enable shipping, then add in all of your account settings.

Once you have it enabled and configured it is ready to go, you can test it out by adding some items with weight to your cart and go through the checkout until you get to the confirm page. On the confirm page you should see the FedEx shipping charge.

multiple shipping options?

I've looked at the ps3 demo and followed a few threads here - the impression I have is that ps3 can only provide one shipping choice instead of providing a range of choices and allowing the customer to choose which level of service (and from which carrier) on a per-item basis. Is this correct?

Thanks,
Gary.

Yes, that is correct. The PowerStore is setup to allow you to make the shipping choices in the admin section, then based on your choices shipping quotes will be returned on the confirm page to show charge for the shipping.

You can add in the ability to use other shipping options with eCart. If you would like to have the user select a service type you will need to add this option to the checkout page. There are snippets in eCart for these select lists. You will need to ensure that the select list is placed inside of the checkout form.

The select list can be added to the page from the snippets, go to Window > Snippets, in here find eCart and expand it then look inside of shipping. You should see the entries for the service type select lists. Once you have added the services select list you can use the lightning bolt icon to select this form element for the service type in the shipping quote server behavior on the confirm page.

Giving the user the choice of shipping providers is more involved and requires some custom coding.

UPS not connecting

I followed your thread in hopes that I could find help.

My page is not connecting , unable to get a quote request processed. UPS is not being very helpful at this point as the person I am contacting is only familiar with a cart based on databases and our cart is 'static' .

Everything in the cart functions great, tax issues, etc etc all work perfectly.

Any suggestions on how to obtain quote on shipping rate? , we are entering 'ground' as the type of service. We are customers of UPS, have everything needed (API) entered into ecart5

thanks

Did you set this up with the checkout wizard or did you add it in manually? If you set it up with the wizard then the shipping charge rule should be created for you. If you set it up manually you may need to apply this shipping charge rule.

Look in your cart object under the shipping tab, you should see the shipping charge rule here. If not you will need to create it, the trigger will be based on UPS shipping quote, and the amount will the be the same UPS shipping quote.

If you have it all setup correctly and do not get a value then there might be an error with the shipping, you can add these bindings to the page to see what the error might be:

php:
<?php

echo "<p>UPS: <br />"
echo 
"Full Request: ".(isset($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_FullRequest"])?htmlentities($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_FullRequest"]):"n/a")."<br />"
echo 
"Full Response: ".(isset($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_FullResponse"])?htmlentities($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_FullResponse"]):"n/a")."<br /></p>"
?>



If you add this code to the confirm page, or the shipping failure page you should be able to see what the error is. When you add this code select the part of the page where you would like to see the info, then go into split or code view and paste the code in. Post back with what you discover.

UPS not connecting

Eric this is the error message I get when it's supposed to connect for quote request:

"The requested service is invalid from the selected origin"

Origin is shipper I assume... or the page it receives the request from?
