Shipping Power Store 3

Currently I am working with paypal express for payments and USPS for shipping. When I submit an order after confirming with paypal, in the pp_confirm.php the shipping calculation is not shown. Also we sell books and we would like to change the weight units to OZ instead of LBS.

To update the weight units for the shipping you will need to update this line of code on the confirm and pp_confirm pages:

form this

php:
$Shipping_PackageArray[$Shipping_PackageIndex]["WeightUnits"] = "lb";



to this

php:
$Shipping_PackageArray[$Shipping_PackageIndex]["WeightUnits"] = "oz";



You may also want to update the label for this field in your admin area on the products insert and update pages. In the settings you will need to enable shipping with the checkbox first, then enter all of the details. When you get to either of the confirm pages you should see the shipping charge that is returned by USPS. If you have altered or updated the confirm or pp_confirm page and have this problem you may need to revert back to the original version to get it working.

Shipping Calculation

So with this fix I will be able to enter the weight in OZs in the product update page and it will calculate the final shipping in oz. with USPS?
I have shipping enabled with USPS with all the information required and the production server enabled from USPS, my pp_confirm.php has not been altered at all (only now that you told me to and what to change(Oz.)) and I still don’t see the shipping cost calculated.

Please I need help urgent, this PS is starting to become a nightmare…
Thank You for your help.

The image attached shows the pp_confirm.php page before submit and the shipping configuration.

Problem Solved

Dashes on the zip code are a no go..
Great support
thank you!

OK now I have another issue. When I buy a single book the system calculates for a single book but when I add another the shipping price stays the same...
Is there a way to assign an specific shipping price to every item, and if you buy more than 4 a flat rate, one for US and one for international,.

You could add a column to your cart object to hold the shipping price and use the subtotal of this column in a custom shipping charge rule. You would need to add in a check for the quantity to make sure it is not more than 4. You would then need to make another flat rate rule that would check to see if there were more than 4 and if so apply the flat rate.

The shipping quote charges that you see in the cart are a result of the shipping quote server behavior. This server behavior is usually only applied to the confirm page, so if you add another item to the cart it will not update the shipping until you get to the confirm page.
