"Free Shipping/No Shipping"
Posted by Joyce Meyer on Mar-07-02 at 00:56 AM (EST)
I have read the various tips about using a 0.0 weight, or using a negative number in personally, if it will work I will try the negative number since I a) have uShop 3.4 and b) using the weight modified would require me to change all the other weight parameter through ALL the pages of my site, as I use a shipping table and just ignored all those weight parameters.

I have one or two items that I want to offer as special (FREE SHIPPING!) and a gift certificate that -- well, seems ridiculous to have a weight value on. Problem is, they can select multiples of the gift certificate...so... the negative number would have to be bound to the quantity/denominations of the certs. (oh headache!)

It would be much simplier if the shipping parameter in future versions allowed a NO SHIPPING variable.

I'll brain it out a bit and see what I can get to work for me unless someone has another suggestion.

I've got a feeling I'm going to end up trying a global find and replace on the weight= :-/

Ok, you're "NO SHIPPING" flag request has been noted (http://www.uburst.com/dcforum/ushop_future/96.html). In the meantime, you mention that you have a "shipping table". Is that shipping table based on WEIGHT, SUBTOTAL or QUANTITY? I may have some suggestions.

Also, were you asking if you can use negative values for the shipping modifier values in your version 3.4 copy of uShop? If so, the answer is "yes" -- in version 3.4 you can use negative values for the shipping modifiers.

Could the "No shipping" flag also include a "no handling" option?
