ZenCart Shipping Module - or modification - $100 AU Max !!!

Description ( Budget $50 to $100 AU ! ) Find a cheap simple solution ! I have ideas on how to do this project more simply and cheaply, buy utilizing more flexability of how ZenCart is used, using existing data fields.

There seems to be significant limitations of ZenCart, rending it very inflexible in terms of calculating accurate shipping charges, from product manufacturers differing location points of product distribution and also accounting for different dimensions of packaging.

I need a module or mod that can fix these limitations. Particularly the problem where one customer selects products from different manufacturers, who have different shipping dispatch locations and therefore freight their products independent of each other. Freight needs to be calculated separately for each product supplier dispatch location for any given customer order and then totaled to the final customer bill.

Ideally this module would interact with my local postal service calculator to get the shipping cost rates, based on dispatch location postcode, customer postcode and weight, height and depth product packaging dimensions.

Database field modifications requested for shipping module


1. Manufacturers Table - requires a Post / ZIP Code so the shipping module can use it to calculate shipping costs from the manufacturers dispatch location. As this stands, it seems that only one postal / zip code can be entered, via the Shipping / Packaging section via the Admin section. This is not suitable for multiple dispatch locations from different product suppliers. Thus each supplier requires their own postcode entry.

2. The Product Table requires Height, Width and Depth fields so they can also be used in the shipping / freight calculation, by third party shipping modules. As this stands, it seems that the product detail only stores the products shipping weight.

3. Whatever else is required, open for further discussion.

My Maximum price is :$100. I think this is a fairly simple job. A few hours work I expect.

1. Creating extra MySQL table fields could be done within 20 min.

i.e. manufacturer -> postcode and product -> height, width & depth.

2. The shipping module coding is basically a simple loop that updates the dispatch postcode with the supplier postcode for each product ordered by the customer, before freight calculation. Probably do a sort on supplier post code for all products, so that they are bunched together and the freight then calculated as one postage shipment per supplier.

Then display the total freight cost of each supplier for the group of products they supply and the grand total freight cost for everything. I expect not much more complex than that.

The 4 variable parameters, weight, height, width & depth can be made available to be passed onto any shipping module chosen. In this case Aust Post, however most use similar parcel shipping parameters for freight calculation, along with dispatch postcode and destination postcode.

Get back to me, only if you can do the job properly at or below that price. I have programmed in other languages and if I knew PHP well, I would do it myself, but I'm not paying more that 100 bucks for it.

If I can't get it done at or below that price, I expect I could eventually do it myself by spending a few hours looking at the shipping module PHP code. I'm not in a hurry, but will happily pay for the job if the price is right.

OK using this is the low cost max $100 budget version of this modification, we can avoid creating new data fields. We can utilize existing data fields to store the package dimensions and supplier post code information.

In the Product Description field, I will add at the end of each product description, these additional details.

{Package Dimensions cm}:Height:10:Length:5:Width:10#

In the Manufacturer Description field I will add the manufacturers post code {PCode} for example as per below;

XYZ Widget Company {PCode}:1234#

Therefore all you need to do is write the code to query this extra field data and extract the code information from the table description fields from the manufacturer and product tables.

You should be able to substitute the region code with the PCode, before shipping is calculated. You use the Package Dimensions data, the PCode and shipping weight field to build the Aust Post Delivery Rate Calculator (DRC) URL Code line.

You then extract the price and days delivery information returned and display it for the user.

If you can group products ordered by manufacturer, you can then calculate the total shipping weight for each group of products.

I think version 1 of this would just work with shipping weight and not packaging dimensions, as they are more complex with grouped products. Thus version 1 might be to group by manufacturer and total the weight for each, then run the Aust Post DRC Query to return the shipping cost and days for user display.
