First question I got is Help me run Asides on iPage and Wordpress 2.0.3? Hoping for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: The product I'm selling is actually a service, thus, the shipping page will be very confusing for my customers. How do I remove the shipping page from the checkout process?.

Thank you for your help. I'm a PHP noivice if that helps with your answer...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

You can also set your products to 0 pounds..

Umm...all of my products are set to 0 pounds...my customers are still presented with a shipping page. I have a delivery charge that is not based on weight, hence 0 pounds works for me..

I think disabling all shipping modules would be sufficient..

IMHO..

If you really want to avoid seeing the shipping confirmation page altogether, go to /catalog/includes/classes/shopping_cart.php, find the function get_content_type() and replace the code inside that function with.

Return $this->content_type = 'virtual';.

This will take you straight to Payment Information...

Thanks for all the advice!.

I changed the function to:.

Function get_content_type() {.

Return $this->content_type = 'virtual';.

But still get the shipping page.... bummer. I'm at a loss, here...

It worked for me.

But what I did was type virtual without the ' ' either side.

Wow! Worked without the quotes! Thanks!.

Now, I only have to get rid of the:.

"Please choose from your address book where you would like the invoice to be sent to" from this page:.

/oscommerce/checkout_payment.php.

We won't be sending out an invoice.....

You should be able to "remove" all of the shipping modules in the admin->shipping configuration screen. With no shipping modules, it should just bypass that screen altogether..

You can always "re-install" those shipping modules via admin..

Also, if all of your "products" are virtual/downloads then shipping will automatically be by-passed..

HTH.
