eCart GetShipping() never resets

eCart GetShipping() never resets

In eCart 5.0.7 my checkout page has a drop down to populate the shipping from UPS called UPS_Service. When it takes me to the confirm page there is a variable called GetShipping() and on the page there is a button (auto generated) that says Modify Information. No matter if I use this button, or clear the cart, or add products, nothing changes the value. It's like it's hard coded, even though it's not.

Anybody know what's going on with this?

I'd have to look at your shopping cart rules. Perhaps you have a flat rate or per item shipping rate added to the cart? That wouldn't change based on modifying information.

Hi Ray. Thanks for your reply. I checked the cart and it is not set to use flat rate shipping. More poking around and I have more details for you. Interestingly if I dump the cart and start over I can select any shipping method and it takes. I can even add more products and it will increase the amount of shipping. However, there does not appear to be a way to change the shipping method after it is selected the first time. If I select Ground it will be ground until I kill the cart. If I select 2nd day, it will remain 2nd day, etc. Any ideas? Would it be a cookie or session variable?

Please send a copy of the page where you initially select the shipping type. I have a feeling the trigger may be set wrong so that it will only set it once based on your description, but I'd have to take a look to be sure.

I don't see the shipping being calculated on this page at all... How is the shipping calculated? Are you doing a USPS or UPS lookup? I'd need to look at the page that does the lookup... maybe the cart.php page or the confirm.php page or possibly the pp_confirm.php page?

The page you sent doesn't actually do the calculation at all. I think the confirm.php page is the one I need to see.

The code looks like it would work. Can you give me a URL, ftp access, and detailed steps to reproduce the problem you are referring to? I'll debug and figure out what the issue is.

It looks like you forgot to add a user name with the other connection information in the previous post...

But it looks like it is set to always use ground...

Update line 426 of confirm.php from:

php:
$Shipping_Parameters["CarrierCode"] = "03";



to:

php:
$Shipping_Parameters["CarrierCode"] = "".((isset($_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_UPS_Service"]))?$_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_UPS_Service"]:"03")  ."";



Then it should be using the shipping type selected on the previous page.
