PS3 and Ecart Shipping

Hi
I am trying to change the shipping rates using ecart all is going welland working for shipping rates based on price.

Question: Is there a way to give a choice of shipping in PS using ecart for example.

All orders under £100 attract a £3.50 shiping cost ( no problem and working)
How would I give the customer an option to choose a premium delivery service if they want for ie £6.50?

So they would have a choice:

Standard - £3.50
Next Day - £6.50

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Mike

On the checkout page, add a select list to choose the shipping type:

php:
<select name="shippingType" id="shippingType">

    <option value="Standard">Standard</option>
    <option value="Next Day">Next Day</option>
</select>



On the confirm page, there is a collection of hidden form elements, add a new hidden form element to the collection using the same name as the oner from the checkout page, and set it to capture the value posted from the checkout page:

php:
<input name="shippingType" type="hidden" id="shippingType" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["shippingType"]))?$_POST["shippingType"]:""?>" />




Near the top of the confirm page, there is code to set session values from the form elements posted from the checkout page, add the following code to set a new session value for the shipping type:

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
  
$_SESSION["shippingType"] = "".((isset($_POST["shippingType"]))?$_POST["shippingType"]:"")  ."";
}
?>




Now add a new trigger to the standard shipping rule:
Based On Session Variable Value
If the session Variable 'shippingType' has a value of 'Standard'


When creating the Next day shipping rule, add the trigger:
Based On Session Variable Value
If the session Variable 'shippingType' has a value of 'Next Day'

Im using PayPal express only so it misses out the checkout page and goes direct to PayPal.

Where would you put the code in that situation?

Thanks

with payapl express, this cannot be accomplished.

Not to worry Jason that code will come in useful another time. I did think that PP Exp may have had a limitation.
