Shipping Pickup Option

Shipping Pickup Option

I would like to add a checkbox to my cart page with the label entitled, "Order Pickup."

When the user clicks the "update cart" button, the shipping cost would zero out and vice versa.

How would I go about doing this? Thanks so much.

How you would implement this depends on how your shipping rule is setup. The norm is that there is a particular session variable that will be set and this is what the shipping charge is triggered on. If you unset this value then this would zero out the shipping, getting it back though would require you to either set the value back to what it was or run the code that generates the value again. So it all depends on how your shipping is currently setup. Please post back with some more details about your charge rule for the shipping and we can give you some pointers on how to get this going.

Sure Eric.

I have two shipping rules set up, one for each product type ([1] candles and [2] signs).

I have set up a base rate system with tiers ($0 - $20 = X and so on) for each of the two product types. The shipping subtotals for each product then add to create the shipping total.

The code is below if that helps...

//Shipping
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%201"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CandlesShipping");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%202"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS2");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%203"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS3");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%204"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS4");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%205"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS5");

Thanks for the updated info about the charge rules. I have an idea that could get this working for you but it will require a little bit of editing of your rules to add in a new condition.

The idea is that you set a new session variable, this session variable can be called something like pick_up. You should set this session variable on the cart display page and default it to 0. You will then have another set of this code that will be very similar but the trigger will be the checkbox that the user checks for pick up.

Then on the cart page you can have your checkbox to indicate pick up instead of shipping, when the user checks this box and submits the page your set session value server behavior will set the value of the pick_up session variable to 1.

You will then need to update the charge rules to check this session variable and ensure that it has a value of 0 in order to make the charge.

If you set the checkbox to be checked based on the value of this session variable it will represent weather or not the user has made that choice. The last thing you will need is another set session server behavior like the one that sets the variable when the box is checked. This time though you will need to check the value of the check box and if it does not have a value set the pick_up variable back to 0.

This is just one way you could do it but I think it would fit your situation. If you have any questions or would like any clarification on any part of this please let us know.

Thanks, Eric.

I will give this a try tomorrow.

Thanks for all your help so far.

Ok.

I think I have it set so that the session variable changes based on whether or not the checkbox clicked. I had it set to update when any form button is pressed.

I am running into some trouble when it actually comes to making a the shipping go to 0 when pick_up is set to one. I tried to make another shipping rule and edit the code, but it's not working. I can't hide my nooness!

Below is the code. Any direction would be very much appreciated.

//Shipping
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%201"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CandlesShipping");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%202"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS2");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%203"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS3");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%204"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS4");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%205"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS5");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("CS%206"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_CS6");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("SN%201"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_SN1");

$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("SN%205"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_SN5");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("Pickup"), true, "WAEC_CommonScentsCart_Pickup");

You should be able to make the edits to your shipping rules directly from within eCart. On the shipping tab where you have the rules defined just edit one, and add in another condition to the trigger. For the new condition you will choose 'based on a session variable value' and then specify your pick_up session variable and look for the value to not equal 1.

So long as you are setting this session variable correctly and you have this extra check in each of the charge rules it should suppress shipping charges from showing. As a test add an item to the cart and trigger one of the shipping rules, then check the box and submit the form to set the session variable correctly. It should then stop the shipping from occurring. Let us know what you encounter.

It is working great. Thanks, Eric.

Glad to hear that. When you have as many rules as you do it can be a bit of a pain to have to update all of them like this but at least you can do it from within the interface.
