Shipping with UPS
« on: September 17, 2008, 16:44:01 pm »
VirtueMart 1.0.7 stable
Joomla! 1.0.12 Stable


I am trying to figure out how this all works, and the guide on VirtueMart.net sucks. I have all the information for my UPS account in the Shipping Module Configuration page, have submitted orders to test and no info was transmitted to UPS. Is the order info supposed to go to UPS, makes sense if i have to give it the UPS access code, user id and password.

If it does submit to UPS-
Do i still have to configure shipping rates if i have my UPS account information setup.

I am working with getting that configured, and I was just poking around and saw your post... because you do not always have the item in stock, do you really want it sent to UPS right when they buy it, or wouldn't it make sense to have that when you change the order status to "shipped", or "shipping", that it gets transmitted? That's not an options, but it would be cool... just like if I could use the auth.net module to authorize a payment, and when the status changes to shipped, the funds get captured... just not that sophisticated yet I guess.
