    Default Free UPS setup with shipping options

    Hi,

    I am new to this Zen Cart and having a problem with setting up UPS shipping method. First of all....how do you get it setup anyway? And if possible, once setup, how do I go about adding options like, Free UPS shipping with UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS Next Day option for customers to choose from?

    Please help! Thanks in advanced!

    Default Re: Free UPS setup with shipping options

    If you are using the UPS shipping mod only, then you won't be able to offer "free ground shipping" (well, you could, but it wouldn't show in the cart, and the customer would have to pay for it ... not what you want).

    So, to use the UPS mod and offer Free shipping, you need to have at least two modules installed.

    1) UPS
    2) The Free shipper Module.

    However, that too may not get you what you want. So, what I did was installed the UPS module, Installed the Free Shipping Module, and then CLONED the "Free Shipping" module altering it to work with UPS.

    I only did that because I wanted to offer free ups ground shipping over a certain dollar amount. It worked. (that was for an older install .. the newest version has this concept "built in").

    Now, the "easy" way would be to install the UPS module via the Admin, Install the "Free Shipping" module via the Admin, and then change the "language" of the free shipping module to read "Free UPS Ground Shipping" (instead of the default "FREE SHIPPING" text that is there).
