We have a custom Virtuemart checkout setup that forms an XML which is sent to a warehouse upon completion of checkout in Virtuemart.
We will need you to modify the XML forming process to use conditional values for the shipping method (Ground, Priority, etc.) to be passed onto the XML. The variables for this exist, you will need to implement them and test.
Also, you will need to allow a different shipper (USPS instead of FedEx) to be forced into use when shipping to Alaska or Hawaii ONLY, then this also needs to pass into the XML.
All login and minor details / information will be provided.
