Simon's Metaship
« on: February 04, 2008, 15:04:35 pm »
This is a new shipping module which can be used to solve a variety of problems, like:

"I want free shipping, but only to customers in Canada."

"I want to use UPS for shipping to the USA and Canada, but US Postal Service for shipping to the UK."

It allows you to filter shipping modules by country using regular expressions.

Thanks for making this mod available.  Can you give me an example of the Country Regular Expressions.  I would like to use the standard shipping list for the US only and UPS for everything else(not necessarily excluding US) I would also like to have free shipping for the standard shipping if the total reaches $30  Went to http://regexlib.com but not sure what to search for.

Thanks,
Kevin

Line 1: First value is "standard_shipping". Second value is "US". (No quotes on either value).
Line 2: First value is "ups" (No quotes). Second value is blank.

Disable all modules except Metaship. Configure UPS and Standard Shipping as normal.

This should do it for you.

Great thanks for th quick reply!  I have it set in the store for free shipping when total is over $30 will this apply only to standard shipping only?

Not sure how free shipping interacts with Metaship. You can try it and see how it does, or add the module free_shipping as a 3rd line to the Metaship configuration. Please post your results here.

In the backend  of Virtuemart  click admin/configuration/shipping put a check next to metaship.  To configure it click store/shipping module list.  Iif you copied the files correctly it should be listed there.  Good luck

I didn't upload Metaship.ini by accident. Now it is working. Thank you for quick responses anyway.

Thanks for module which cures my free shipping to UK only problem, however my other half of the problem is free shipping on certain items only within the UK. Is there any chance you could add a third field for product_type. For example.

free_shipping                    UK                                    product_type1
zone-shipping                    UK                                   <blank for all other product types>
usps                   <blank for all other countries>      <blank for all product types>

or maybe rewrite/rename module to use product_type or product_category instead of country.

Also any chance of an example list of countries for second box for example

zone_shipping                   UK Ireland or is it UK/Ireland or UK,Ireland etc

Thanks
Yes, I think it's fair to say I liked Andy from the start.

Hi,

Will this module allow me to have free standard shipping over say £50 but also leave special delivery rates available for the user if they don't want the free standard rate?

Many thanks, Ben

I believe you can do that without Metaship.
