How do I set up hosting account on iPage.com domain name?

First off, How do I set up hosting account on iPage.com domain name? Looking forward for any response. Another question on my mind: We have some items that are very large and can only be shipped by truck. Other items can go UPS. Does anyone know of any contributions that can allow me to choose which method of shipping per product in the admin, and then only allow those methods when the customer checks out? I would like to know before I try to do this myself. Thanks in advance...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Thanks mugitty, that is what I am looking for. I am having a little trouble with it. I tried adding another module called truck. This is what it looks like in the switch statement in /catalog/modules/shipping/mltship.php.

Switch ($row['module_name']).

   {.

   case "ups":.

     $rate = new ups;.

     $mltQuote = $rate->quote('GNDRES');.

     //Any other module specific processing / charges should be done here.

     break;.

   case "usps":.

     $rate = new usps;.

     .

        $mltQuote = $rate->quote('Priority');.

     //Any other module specific processing / charges should be done here.

     break;.

   case "truck":.

     $mltQuote = $shipping_weight * 1.3;.

   break;.

   }.

In the database I added.

Method_name      module_name      handling_charge      handling_per_box      tare_weight      max_box_weight.

Truck  truck  0.00  0  0.00  99999.

I changed a few products and tested the UPS and that works fine. My truck shipping is not working. I made a product have to ship by truck and when I checkout the shipping and handling comes up as $0..

Any ideas?..

Anybody? I am really in a bind here and need some help figuring this out...

Comment #3

Can you tell me where you found the truck module?.

And did you get it to work with multivender?.

I think I tried multivender but it would give me choices, not eliminate them..

After not being able to find a freight module for less then full trucksa, I am trying to set a flat rate on some products and normal ups and fedex on others...

Comment #4

I tried copying the flat rate modules and just changing the names to truck to create a new module. It worked, but not like I wanted it. We ended up using a module called individual shipping where we just enter a flat price per item for the shipping charge...

Comment #5

What would be nice is if you can incorporate a switch statement upon checkout..

If product < 140lbs, then use UPS shipping module..

If product > 140 lbs, then use table rate module..

If individual shipping price defined, then use individual price module..

Having all three shipping modules visible for ALL products is dumb..

I've been trying to do this for weeks for my shopping cart but no luck. Can't find anyone willing to help. At least we're all in the same boat. Hopefully we can find someone together skilled enough in PHP willing to help (hopefully who's in the same boat we're in!)...

Shipping is extremely complex. We have numerous other problems. For example, if you order item A from us, we can ship today, but not if you are in Canada as the item comes from a vendor in the US and we drop ship from them, and they do not ship to Canada. So, in this case, we have to order the product in first. Same applies to USPS shipments. Then, you might order 2 products from 2 different vendirs, each of which has a different shipping method.

Then, we ship Fedex ground, but some items come direct from vendors who can ship Fedex, but not Fedex ground. Then.....

You might try the following contribution. I haven't used it, but it sounds like it may do what you are after:.
