eCart6 session variable for shipping

Thread began 12/04/2014 9:51 pm by eric284736 | Last modified 12/17/2014 2:17 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1254 views | 20 replies |

eCart6 session variable for shipping

Hi Jason,

I have a shipping fee setup to only apply if the order is shipped outside the US. In the Shipping Rule it is set as Based on the session variable "CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default" != US

That still shows shipping if I select US as the country.

On a previous version of eCart I used the if session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_country" has a value "!=" to "US" but that does not work on version 6.

What am I missing?

thx!
Eric

lets double check what session are getting set, sounds like you don't have the right session variable name.

on the confirm_cart page add the following code just before the </body tag:

<pre><?php @session_start(); var_dump($_SESSION); ?></pre>

that will dump a listing of the sessions that are set, we can use that to find the right one to use for the shipping country name

ok, so the session is:
$_SESSION['WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default']['Country_2']


your rule should be:
Based on Session variable 'WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default' is set

AND Custom Expression:
$_SESSION['WASF_CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default']['Country_2'] != 'US'

Jason, one more question...

I don't want any shipping charge to show until they enter the shipping address. Right now the $10 rate shows as the default until US is selected as the shipping country. How would I do that?

thx
Eric
