ecart can't clear shipping cost

ecart can't clear shipping cost

Hello there,
I have made my shopping cart but and having problems with setting up the shipping.

problem 1: I live in Australia and would like to know if the setting built in ecart are ment for Australian fed ex and Australia DHL. As when i ring DHL they say the service is only available in the USA. The only shipping I can get to work is the Australian post.

Problem 2: I have added the shopping cart display manager to the page. That adds my product , price , shipping cost, tax. the problem is that the shipping cost only gets calculated after the customer puts in his/her shipping address. The shipping cost then displays on the confirm.php page. which works well. But the problem im having is if I then close the webpage then reopen the shopping cart webpage. then in the display manger page the shipping cost is left there from the previous shipping calculation.
How do I stop this from happening.

looking forward to your response

many thanks mitch

No, the FedEx and DHL rate lookup are not for Australian FedEx or Australian DHL.

the shipping rate is stored in a session value, to clear the session value, you need to close the browser completely rather than just close the window for your store
