I'm struggling with the shipping module.

I want to be able to just select a country and that the shippingcosts are automatically updated.

I now have added the select a shipping method dropdownbox, but I don't want the customers to have to choose this manually.

I want them to only select a country.

I know my way around with ASP, so if someone can tell me where I would have to start to add this code, please let me know.

I read in some posts that you could use the UPS/ FEDEX add-on as an example, but unfortunately I can't download it anymore.

Is there a way to download it ?

Also I believe that with the current shipping module in VP-ASP it is not possible to use it in a multi-webshop environment.

We have 2 webshops sharing one database. Both webshops need to have different shipping methods.

If I know where to code this I can fix this.

In regards to your first question - that is a custom mod - when i was running 6.5 I had the VPASP guys customise this for me, it can be done and it didnt cost that much! I am about to embark on the same thing for v7, although i am thinking about using the australia post module instead.

As i am a complete asp novice cant help on coding, but i think the files you need to look at are:

- shopcountries.asp
- shopcustomer.asp
- shopcustomerform.asp

second point, im sure if you log a ticket on the helpdesk they would email you the ups fedex add on... just ask nicely ;)

third question on multi shop with different shipping, I dont think its possible in 6.5 out of the box - v7 its a yes.
Hopefully somoene will correct me if im wrong or add further input...

All shipping calculations are done in the file shopshippingcalc.asp

I just need to figure out how to do my own shipping method there. Just some guidelines.
