Receipt Shipping and Handling Mod
Author jdempsey on 03-10-2002 at 18:34 (EST)
My client is going to notify their customers of actual shipping charges after the order is placed.

I need a way to either not show the Shipping & Handling line in the final sales ($0.00 implies FREE). OR to enter some characters that don't imply free. The word "Note" or asterics, dashes or the word "note" and a link to an explanation.

The last method is the best because the client can then just enter an amount on the notification e-mail and send a copy to the customer.

The best I can figure is that the or support files (ushop-lib) will need to be hacked. I looked but couldn't find the final write location.

There are a couple options:

OPTION 1: Is the store going to be charging tax on the items? If not, then the easiest thing to do might be to just set the "cart_show_totals" parameter of the uShopOrderButton applet to "NO". This will cause only the "Subtotal" to be displayed on the final order form. And then you can just add HTML/Text to the order form saying that "Applicable shipping changes will be added."

OPTION 2: Or as another option, perhaps you can just change the "Shipping & Handling" label on the order form to something else. This can be done via the "cart_label_shipping_and_handling" label on the uShopInitialize applet. (just put that applet on the same page as your uShopOrderButton applet).


OPTION 3: If you just want to put the word "*Note" in the Shipping & Handling value cell (instead of displaying the $0.00), here's how to modify the script:

STEP 1: Make a backup of your script... just in case.

STEP 2: Open your script with any text editor such as WordPad.

STEP 3: Do a search on the following line:

sub get_cart_html

... This will get you to the start of the subroutine that outputs the shopping cart HTML on the order forms.

STEP 4: In that subroutine, you will find TWO instances of this line:

$formatted_output = sprintf("%s %.2f",$currency_symbol,$totals_shipping_and_handling);

Try changing that line to something like this:

$formatted_output = "*Note";

STEP 5: Save the script... as TEXT if your editor asks... and try it out!

NOTE: You may want to make the same changes to the "sub get_cart_text" subroutine which handles generating the TEXT output for the email receipt.
