How to customize shipping method?
« on: February 13, 2012, 07:41:17 am »
I want to create new shipping options, as below:
  • arrange own shipping - buyer will arrange & pay for their own shipping; buyer will continue checkout process & pay online for the good
  • pickup only - buyer will come pick up goods; buyer will continue checkout process & pay online for the good
  • request shipping quote from seller - seller will send shipping quote to buyer
   
So in the Shipping Method page, buyer should be able to select either one of the options above.

Please let me know if its possible customize this? If so, how?

Many thanks

Hi ,

Just wondering what VM and Joomla you are using.
*This should be quite easy in shop>>Shipment methods?
Just make the three options you require and publish them with a clear description for each?

* So when some one purchases a product and the choice of shipping comes up they pick one.?

The invoice received by the buyer & seller will say one of your choices.

Make sure you put the zip code very wide like 0000000  to 999999 etc so you won't miss any thing the customer types in. In VM 2 I think you could do this for free.

I'm using Joomla 1.5.22 and VM 1.1.6

Would that be easy to setup?

Hi ,

In VM 1 I have set up options that say free, or contact me or please contact me to arrange shipping and payment.

In VM one - I have set these up and had very little difficulty. Just make a shipper then make three rates - all with the statement about the types of choices you want.

I would give the shopper and option of post PLus your options.

I don't think this is a good idea because the customer needs to know the cost of shipping . eg. Tonight my daughter wanted me to order a cake online and send it to her.

* they had similar buttons of request - the cake cost $40.00 and when I rang the shipping was $40.00 - She gets no cake.

* often the alternative I have set up is that shipping cosat is included in the price. Or free deliver inthe local area.

You need to hop into VM1 and trial a few options.
