I had vpasp do some custom work to the shipping routine for me earlier this year when I upgraded to version 6.

Most of my items ship via UPS, but some items ship via a fixed cost and some items have free shipping.

They modified the shipping routine to allow for a fixed shipping cost. Basically the way it works is each product has a field for a fixed shipping cost. If I enter a fixed cost, then when a customer checks out it automatically uses the fixed shipping cost and skips the UPS procedure. If I leave the fixed shipping field blank, then it defaults to UPS and the UPS real-time routine is called. If there is free shipping, then the standard vpasp cart already has built in functionality and it was just a matter of turning it on in the settings. If the product has free shipping set to yes, then all shipping routines are ignored and no shipping cost is charged.

Each item has one type of shipping: fixed cost, ups or free. This is great because I can control each individual items shipping cost.

I am sure vpasp can adapt this to the USPS routine. The rates are reasonable and they work fast. So far, I have had a couple of projects done by vpasp in lieu of third party developers and I have been very pleased. Vpasp has the resources to handle any project, big or small. I have used third party developers in the past, but as they became too busy they didn't want to work with me anymore. So now I only work exclusively with vpasp.

Many of the cusomizations they did, they were able to use my support points, but this one required a quote.

Just send vpasp a message in the help desk and they will take it from there. If they need my quote number to reference the changes they made, I will be happy to provide it through them.

Hope this helps.

Hi sorry Iím just getting back to read this; I have been going crazy trying to get things done. After the holidays Iím going to overhaul the whole site and fix the bugs. I can understand and appreciate the way you can do shipping but with mine itís just hard to do fixed or flat shipping. I have too many variables. Each item can ship by itís self or ship from California or their could be five different items to each order with different weights and some can go USPS Flat Rate and some canít. What they should do is add a way to restrict the shipping for each item. So you can pick i.e. Item A can ship all but item B only UPS or FedEx. Or if you order up to x items can ship this way or that way. Ya I know too much to do, to many variables. Or if USPS, would give all of us whom ship every where under the Sun special deals as FedEx or Ups.
Thank You
