Shipping First Class and Priority, how?
« on: November 21, 2011, 06:58:48 am »
Hey all,

Quick question, my VirtueMart site has products that all contain a drop down attribute so you can change the size of the product.
Now my question is, if I want to give the option to our customers to choose either First Class or Priority, how would I go about setting this up just right?

You are able to select a small bottle or a large bottle, but what gets me is how do I make it so that if they do go over a specified amount of weight they don't have the ability to choose First Class only Priority. Mail.

If my question is unclear, I do apologize, just not sure exactly how I would word it.

There is currently no easy way to do this, that I know of.  The USPS API is not very "smart", and leaves a lot of the work up to the developer.  I know of no module that does these type of weight restriction calculations.

So, you'll need to configure your USPS module with services that apply in ALL cases.
