Hi,

I would like to take the estimate shipping information from the checkout page and put it onto its own CMS page. That way a user can just check what the cost of a delivery would be

anyone have thoughts on this?

cheers

Since shipping costs are usually entirely dependent on what is in the cart, the current location seems appropriate. Perhaps you could just create a link on your page that is a graphic or is labeled ‘Check shipping costs’ which actually points to the cart?

hey mike,

Thanks for your post, well this page would act similar to the “Check Shipping Costs” but i dont want to link it to the cart. Say for example someone just wants to get an estimate on delivery without creating a cart.
There doesnt seem to be a method that allows me to just enter a country,city,zip/post code and get an estimate.


<reference name="content">
<block type="checkout/cart_shipping" name="checkout.cart.shipping" as="shipping" template="checkout/cart/shipping.phtml"/>
</reference>

the above returns the shipping details you need to complete. But when you submit its looking for a cart to check against.

maybee something for me to work on

cheers
