    help question Delivery Charge by Australian Postcode

    Hello,

    My name is Ella. I'm building my own flrist website that is lcated in Melbourne Australia.
    I've added all the products and now want to fix the shipping/delivery charges.
    In my sort of business we give out the flower orders to courier companies in order for them to be delivered.
    I want to set up a sort of table or zones that wil allow me to charge a different price for each delivery destination.

    (Other florist websites have the delivery charge calculated at the checkout shipping page when the poscode is entered. This would be ideal but I have no clue on how to do it.)


    I first attempted to do it as an attribute which works fine but the problem is that there are too many suburbs in the drop down box and that makes every product page very slow.

    Could anyone tell me if there is a way to get around it?
    My website is : http://onlinemelbourneflorist.com.au/

    (I'm not very good at codes but let me know af any way to fix this)

    Kind Regards

    Are you delivering locally, regionally, nationally or internationally?

    It looks like you are a good candidate for THIS MODULE.

    it's only local delivery to Melbourne suburbs!

    Is there any other possible way to do it?

    (sorry to be such a pain)

    There is no STANDARD mechanism to configure shipping purely by a local postcode.

    Configuring a module for your specific situation and location will be time-consuming... and costly.

    Conor Kerr (CEON) is one of the most knowledgeable programmers around, and I know that he spent HUNDREDS of hours developing Advanced Shipper... so the few bucks he asks for is really excellent value...

    To me it's a no-brainer...

    You could try hiring some stranger in the 3rd-world... but you are more likely to get a snake-oil solution from that route.

    Just go get Advanced Shipper... Talk nicely to Conor, and he may find some time to advise further.

    I will try and implement both modules and see which one works best.

    Thank you both for your help
