$0.00 shipping cost


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the reply, but altering the database and changing scripts is my last resort because I know there is a way that osCommerce handles this for you.  This would be much safer, faster, and easier. 


A reply from the osCommerce forums:


you dont need to write any php, and its not a mod at all.. you just need to learn how to use teh Tables rates.. you do something in the shipping table that looks like this:



I looked in the shipping module in the osCommerce back-end and the only shipping table I saw is for "International Rate".  I'm creating a product that's actually a donation.  There may be a better solution for this, thanks.

Matrix meaning a data array of two or more dimensions. For example the table rates are based on weight or price. If you were to use the price for shipping calculations you could add:


So anything with a price of $0 will be charged at $0.00, anything upto $10 will be charged at $5.00


Or if the product has a price use weight as the quantifier and set the product weight to 0.


If you require anything more complex then you will need to write your own module. Its not that hard. Use the flat rate class file as a template.

I dont know why you dont have it unless you have deleted the table.php file within /includes/modules/shipping/

Just downloaded the osCommerce files and it is included. You should be able to install it from the shipping link within http://www.yoursite.com/admin


Are you using version 2.2 or one of the beta new releases 3/4
