Ecart 5, Adding a shipping provider after using the ecart wizard.

Ecart 5, Adding a shipping provider after using the ecart wizard.

I did look through the other threads but could not find the answer to what seems to be a basic function.

There did not seem to be a way in the Checkout wizard to select more than one shipping company for example UPS and FedEX . How would I allow for the user to select his shipping company and then select the type of shipping from that company?

If I did not have select a shipping provider when I ran the Ecart checkout wizard. Is it possible to add a shipping provider after using the ecart wizard or do I need to discard my check out pages and run the wizard again.

you can add shipping manually after running the checkout wizard.

on the confirm page, go to the Server behaviors panel and click the plus button, then select ecart -> Shipping then selct the provider you wish to use.

You then need to add a shipping rule in the shipping tab for that provider.

Both triggers and calculation list have built in options for your provider.

to offer a choice of shipping requires some hand coding to accomplish.

you need to add a select list to the checkout page, and also a hidden form element of the same name on the checkout page:

<select name="shipping" id="select">

    <option value="usps">USPS</option>
    <option value="fedex">FedEx</option>

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

the add a set session value behavior.

Set the trigger to any form post
set the name to shipping
click the lightning bolt next to value and select the shipping form element

Now, when creating the shipping rules, add an additional trigger:
based on session variable value

for fedex, the trigger would be created as:
If the Session variable 'shipping' has a value of 'fedex'

Thank you very much!

You should offer this on the website as a FAQ or as a PDF doc.

In fact the use of server behaviors with your products has opened my eyes to customization, but it isn’t obvious to users.

Also the idea of using and generating and posts is very valuable with products like CSS form builder and security assist.
