ecart 5 shipping/postage

i have ecart 5 extention in dreamweaver. im developing a site which sells only WITHIN australia. i see options for shipping though what im after is looking for a way to base shipping on postage ONLY within Australian states. is there a way i can do that? to be able to base postage by region example. $8.50 for all states except Northen Territory which is $15.50 and Canberra is free postage?? is there a way to statically implement those prices depending on the customer's postage address

can someone help me please. asap preferably.

you will need to populate the state list on the checkout page with the australian states.

the shipping state is stored in a session variable named:
eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province

and the shipping country is stored in a session named:
eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country


you can create Shipping rules that trigger on the value of those session variables.

from your description, you would need to crate 2 rules, the exact rules will depend on how you set the values of the state lists:

- apply a base rate of $8.50 to all australian states except Canberra:

Triggers:
"Based on session Variable Value"
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "AU"

AND
"Based on session Variable Value"
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province" is "!=" a value of "Canberra"

Calculation:
Falt rate "8.50"


- apply an additional $7.00 if the state is Northen Territory

Triggers:
"Based on session Variable Value"
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "AU"

AND
"Based on session Variable Value"
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province" is "=" a value of "Northern Territory"

Calculation:
Falt rate "7.00"

that error means there is output to the page between php tags. the error is reporting the problem at line 3 of the checkout.php page
output started at /myserver/checkout.php:3

thank you jason. i solved that error.

i couldnt see any spaces in dreamweaver or any errors. but when i went into my hosting server i edited the code from there and turns out my whole code started on line 2 and not from line 1. dont how that happened. but i fixed the bug thanks to you.

my other question now is. i have implemented the postage as you instructed.. but its not working.. i still get a flat rate of 8.50 for all transactions. and now my other problem is that the currency is in USD and there is no option to change to australian dollar (AUD). to attempt to fix this, in the checkout.php there was a line under currency i changed to AUD from USD. but still does not work. how can i fix this?

the link to the site is _TEST
and another thing is i followed the instructions on how to implement an order history with data assist/security assist though the data does not show up for my member page when i input data into the order and order details database.

and when i checkout with the cart it takes me to the confirm.php and says "Unknown column "" in 'field list' i dont know whats wrong.. i followed everything and made sure its all correct.
