How to display a flat rate charge that is set to 0?

How to display a flat rate charge that is set to 0?

Hi,

Is it possible to set a charge to display on the cart page when the flat rate is set to 0? The reason I ask is because I've got charge rules that occur for various amounts which work great, however one of these rules is meant to fire to indicate that there is no charge for P&P when the subtotal of the cart is > a certain amount.

The default behaviour doesn't show the rule name in the charge section if the flat rate is set to 0, although I understand the reason for it not displaying; in this case I would like to override this behaviour.

Many Thanks in Advance
kp

P.S: Forgot to mention, using PHP and DW8

Assuming you are talking about a shipping charge you need to find this line of code on your cart pages:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetDiscounts() > || $eCart1->GetCharges() > || $eCart1->GetShipping() > || $eCart1->GetTax() > 0)     {
?>



and modify it like so:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetDiscounts() > || $eCart1->GetCharges() > || $eCart1->GetShipping() >= || $eCart1->GetTax() > 0)     {
?>



then find this line:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetShipping() > 0)     {
?>



and modify it like so:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetShipping() >= 0)     {
?>



now in the table cell that contains the shipping cost you could add code like this if you wanted to display something other than 0.00

php:
<?php if ($eCart1->GetShipping() > 0)     { echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($eCart1$eCart1->GetShipping());  } else { echo "FREE"; } ?>

Thank you for your reply dave; however I'm trying to do this with Charge Rules and not shipping rules (because they are accumulative). I have three rules:

One that sets the P&P to £1.00 if the subtotal of the cart is between 2.99 - 15.99
One that sets the P&P to £2.00 if the subtotal of the cart is between 15.99 - 25.99
One that sets the P&P to £0.00 if the subtotal of the cart is above 25.99.

If I use shipping rules and the subtotal of the cart is 2.99 than the shipping is set to £1.00, however if the subtotal of the cart is changed to above 15.99 than the shipping is set to £3.00 i.e. £1.00 + £2.00.

The problem with the charge rules is that it uses a loop, so your solution doesn't work with them. It just occured to me is a way to stop the shipping rules from being accumulative.

For charges try something like this. Find the following code:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetCharges() > 0)     {
?>
              <tr>
                <td class="eC_SummaryLabel">Charges</td>
                <td>&nbsp;</td>
              </tr>
              <?php
if (!$eCart1->Rules_EOF("Charges")) {
    while (!
$eCart1->Rules_EOF("Charges")) {
        if (
$eCart1->RuleLooperValue("Charges") > 0) {
?>
                <tr>
                  <td class="eC_IndividualCharge"><?php echo $eCart1->RuleLooperName("Charges"); ?></td>
                  <td><?php echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($eCart1$eCart1->RuleLooperValue("Charges")); ?></td>
                </tr>
                <?php
        
}
        
$eCart1->Rules_MoveNext("Charges");
}
    
$eCart1->Rules_MoveFirst("Charges");
}
?>



and change it to this:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetCharges() >= 0)     {
?>
              <tr>
                <td class="eC_SummaryLabel">Charges</td>
                <td><?php if ($eCart1->GetCharges() == 0) { echo 'FREE'; } else { echo'&nbsp;'; } ?></td>
              </tr>
              <?php
if (!$eCart1->Rules_EOF("Charges")) {
    while (!
$eCart1->Rules_EOF("Charges")) {
        if (
$eCart1->RuleLooperValue("Charges") > 0) {
?>
                <tr>
                  <td class="eC_IndividualCharge"><?php echo $eCart1->RuleLooperName("Charges"); ?></td>
                  <td><?php echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($eCart1$eCart1->RuleLooperValue("Charges")); ?></td>
                </tr>
                <?php
        
}
        
$eCart1->Rules_MoveNext("Charges");
}
    
$eCart1->Rules_MoveFirst("Charges");
}
?>



You may also need to change this code:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetDiscounts() > || $eCart1->GetCharges() > || $eCart1->GetShipping() > || $eCart1->GetTax() > 0)     {
?>



to this:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
//ecart="eCart1"
if ($eCart1->GetDiscounts() > || $eCart1->GetCharges() >= || $eCart1->GetShipping() > || $eCart1->GetTax() > 0)     {
?>
