Can someone give me a price for integration of postcodeanywhere coding into version 5.5 - just using UK lookup, but cart needs to be able to take non-UK orders as well

I'm not sure what you mean by postcodeanywhere coding, but if you're after a Royal Mail shipping vpasp addon for UK and International, we've got one.....

Postcode anywhere completes the orderform from supplying the postcode

we currently use this with v4.5 some sample screenshots can be seen at: http://www.searley.net/pca/

the trouble is that you can NOT use the standard PCA pop-up as the way the dynamic forms are created means that PCA can not see the fields, you have to use the more advanced tools to retriew the details locally.. and then you pass the details back

example: shopcustomer.asp?a1=PO%20Box%20203&a2=Hythe&a3=&c=Southampton&co=Hampshire&p=SO45%202WX&comp=Richard%20Searley&pca=PostCodeLookup

then you could simply add something like:
if request("a2") <>"" then

if request("a1") <>"" then
strAddress = request("a1") & " , " & request("a2")
end if

if request("a1") <>"" then
strAddress = request("a1")
end if
end if

into shopcustomerform.asp you would need to do this for each addess field

i know this may not be the 'best' way, but it was the simplest

another thing i dont like is that credits only last 6 months, then you lose them, we have found fewer people than expexted using the postcode tool.. is it worth the time and expense??
