Flex Shipping Module

Micah (aka Ridge in the forum) has created a Shipping Module today. Here's what he writes about it:

"This is a shipping module that bases the shipping cost on the total value of the items in the cart.
If the value is below a defined minimum, it charges a flat fee. Above the minimum it charges a percentage
of the value of the cart. The base value of the cart, flat shipping fee, and percentage can all be defined
in the admin configuration under the shipping modules list.

You can download the module from our Downloads section.


To install, add the following to administrator/components/com_phpshop/html/admin.show_cfg.php around line 600 after
#       </td>
#   </tr> :

  <td valign="top"><div align="right">
   <input type="radio" name="conf_SHIPPING" <? if (PSHOP_SHIPPING_MODULE == 'flex') echo "checked="checked""; ?> value="flex" />
  <td valign"top">Flexi Custom Shipping Module<br>Charges flat shipping fee up to a minimum purchase<br>and a percentage of the puchase over that minimum</td>

Then upload the following files to administrator/components/com_phpshop/classes/shipping:

  • flex.ini
  • flex.cfg.php
  • flex.php

Ther is a problem with this module. First, it shows in the global configuration as a shipping option but it does not show in a list of shipping modules under the store tab.

Because of this, the configuraqtion must be set by going into the flex.cfg.php file. The default setting is a min fee of $9.00 or 8% of any order over $100.

When checking out the "select shipping method" button shows 9.0 (dollars) but is not automatically checked. Even iof you check and prcedd with checkput the shipping charge is not added to the total.

This modukle needs some more work. I would also like to suggest a small modification. I woulkd like to see a minumum shipping fees that may be slected PLUS a selected % of the shopping cart.
