I have set and enabled my weightranges for shipping.
However on the shipping information page there is a dropdown that asks the customer for the shipping method (by weight range).
This causes a problem as this page doesn't show the weight of the product or products ordered by the customer.
Therefore the customer can't select accurately their shipping cost.
If they select outside of the required weightrange, for example 3 products were selected, then this causes an error.
How do I configure the shipping to automatically calculate the shipping based on the total weight of the product(s) ordered without the need of customer input?
I.E. Remove the need of the dropdown selection by the customer on the shipping information page
Many thanks

weightrange values are calculated per order by the VPAsp automatically if you have the assigned weights in the product record.
Suppose you had 4 shipping Zones, each with different pricing per weight range - The buyer would simply select the Zone or State (can State differences be automatically assigned? you ask)

In the shipping table you will have 4 zone calculations with x Number of weight ranges

15 weight ranges times 4 Zones = 60 records (15 in each Zone)

I have set the weight range for all the provinces in Canada , now i would like to assign a weight range that applies to all the USA states. Is this possible with the settings i have or do i have to assign them to all the different states. When i say no to shipping by state the canadian provinces don't work of course. Is this possible at all ?
