Add a Shipping Field etc

Hi

I need to know if this is possible please.

1. To add a Ship next Day button which will update the cart total by £10 ( for all UK customers ) I presume this is done in the same way as the Discount rules I have already applied. So can Next Day be added on the same form as Discount ?

Also can the request below also be accommodated on the same form

2. When my client ships overseas they get a different price each time. Is it possible to add another field to the Cart which says something along the lines of " Add Overseas Payment " where the client could then type in for example £30 and for it to Update the cart total

Or can this be done where we set in a drop down for example

Next day £10
Countries Zone A which will add £20
Countries Zone B which will add £30 to the cart etc etc

I just want the facililty for them to update the Cart price before they check out

Or am I better off just ading a Shipping Field into the form with ADD SHIPPING RATE

And then put a list next to it saying TYPE IN £10 NEXT DAY or add shipping amount advised

This way I would only need one field for Extra Shipping ?

Hope all makes sense

Thanks for your kind help

John

on the checkout page add a the next day shipping checkbox with a checked value of 1:

php:
<input name="NextDay" type="checkbox" id="NextDay" value="1" />




on the confirm page, near the bottom, is a collection of hidden form elements. Add another one with the same name as the checkbox to capture the value from the checkout page:

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




then add a set session value behavior, open the server behaviors panel and click the plus button, select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value.

For the trigger and the value, click the lightning bolt icon and select the NextDay form element. Set the name to NextDay.

now you can set the shipping rules on the shipping tab.

For the Trigger use based on session Variable Value:
if the session variable "NextDay" is "=" a value of "1"

to make the rule specific to the UK, add another trigger:
AND
Based on session variable value:
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "UK"

and set the calcualtion to a flat rat charge of 10


you can create other rules for other countries using the eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country session variable

Not right ?

Hi Jason

Have done all you said but it doesnt work ?

See attached Grab - it puts the Number 1 in the shipping column but doesnt update the cart total ?

I think you missed a closing > on your code as Dreamweaver alerted this ?

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

I added one at the end so now reads

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


but not sure if this where the problem lies ?

Please advise

Thanks

John

you have added the Set Session value behavior for setting the NextDay session variable to the checkout page.

My instructions where to add that behavior to the confirm page.

you also need to add the hidden element to the form on the confirm page.

Sorry

Sorry Jason I misunderstood your instructions.

As I understood it you set the session when you pressed the button on the Checkout page and then the Confirm page collected the data from the session and added to cart



I deleted the sessions from the Checkout page and added to the Confirm Page

I have tried again but it is still not working

I copied this field into the form section of the confirm page as well ( so there are 2 sessions on the page in blind fields both called NextDay )

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

I attach Zip File as still not working

I see, your country select list uses GB for the United Kingdom

change the trigger:

session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "UK"

to:
session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" is "=" a value of "GB"
