PowerStore 3 Shipping

PowerStore 3 Shipping

No clue how to do this.

I have products with weights that I want shipped by UPS. How do I set it up so it just shows whatever UPS would charge for say a 4lb item?

If a person picks 2 products, the weight is of course doubled. How does this get calculated?

UPS Account

Also, if I set up a UPS account and get an access key, shipper number, etc... when I order a product from my site, does the shipping get generated from UPS? I'm not really sure what this is for.

The shipping quote functionality that is built into PowerStore makes use of the rates returned from your provider based on the weight, starting and destination locations, and service type selected.

The information is sent to to the provider, UPS, and they return with the quote. The shipping quote will be applied to your cart as the shipping cost. This is only for a shipping quote, it does not actually register any of the shipment details with UPS.

Price of $0

What if an item is a custom item and has a price of $0. How do I hide the price if it is $0?

Thanks.

The shipping will only be shown when there is a shipping charge, so if there is no shipping then you will not see any listed. The shipping will be based on the weight so if an item does not have a weight it will not be configured in the shipping charge. If this does not answer your question please post back and include some more specific detail about the situation and how you would like shipping to be charged in that case.

Price

'm talking about the item price.

Products_Results.php

How do I hide a $0 amount?

The code that controls the display of the price on the product results page is near lines 469-475:

php:
<?php 

    
if($row_MaxMinPrice["MinPrice"] > 0) {
        echo 
number_format($row_MaxMinPrice["MinPrice"],2);
    } else {
        echo 
number_format($row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"],2);
    }
?>



You would need to add in an if statement here to check if this $row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"] value was equal to 0, if so display your alternative message, else display the ProductPrice. This is a custom update that will require you to edit the php code.

Can you help with this? I have no idea how to write it.

Basically, I just want to add:

if PRICE = 0

don't display anything.

Creating custom code to alter the Solution Packs is not something that we normally do but in this case it is a very simple update so I will give you an example:

php:
if($row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"] != 0){

echo number_format($row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"],2);
} else {
 // display nothing
}



You would put this code in place of this line of code:

php:
echo number_format($row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"],2);
