Hi all

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get the shipping set up as I wish, and I'm hoping to get some advice.

Our shipping policy is: Free Shipping within the UK for orders over £100, and £8.95 for orders under £100. Orders outside of the UK are subject to a £30 shipping fee.

Set up Shipping (pricerange)

ID Shipping Method Base price Extra Cost Min Cost Max Cost Country

1 Standard (Within UK) 8.95 0 100 UK

2 Standard (Outside UK) 30 other

I figured setting up the "other" option would mean that whenever anyone selected anything other than the UK that this record would be used but it doesn't seem to act that way

I have tried almost every setting I can think of but haven't managed to achieve what I am aiming for.

I can specify that orders over £100 are shipping free, but I want it ONLY if within the UK.

When I select a shipping location on the form, the page does some ajax magic to recreate the dropdown list of the available shipping options, but regardless of what I choose I end up with both options.

If I select Standard(Within the UK) but set the country to something other than the UK i end up with no shipping at all on the order.

So to recap, since I have probably been rambling:

If UK the only delivery option that should be available is Standard (within the UK), which is £8.95 or free if order value is over £100.
If outside of the UK the only delivery option available should be Standard (outside of UK), which is £30 regardless of order size.

Please can I get some assistance to get this set up

Many thanks

Also, perhaps I'm pushing my luck, but I don't like the extra step where a customer has to enter the delivery details for each item. Is it possible to remove this, so that they just specify a delivery address on the order form?

other fields are unused that's why that didn't work. You have to reference data entered into other fields for them to do anything at all. You might want to open up a ticket for this.
