Title: Configuring ship to screen with preset options, as well as custom option
Post by: a6consulting on September 15, 2014, 22:49:37 pm
I'm building a site for a floral shop and they service certain funeral homes.  I thought it might be a good idea to have the funeral homes they service as a preset option for orders and also allow people to send flowers to custom addresses.  Anyone have some thoughts on how to accomplish this?

exactly what I built this for  http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/joomla-virtuemart/virtuemart-2-pre-configured-shipping-comp.html

(although in this case it was for flowers to hospitals)

to custom addresses?  Can't the standard shipping adress be used?

Your system might be close.  What I'm hoping for is a way to have the preconfigured dropdown have the names of funeral homes that they can just click on and it will autofill the addresses in.  I'm willing to put in the coding work, but I have no clue where to start.
