Hello there. I've spent a week setting up shipping for a potential online store. We have some usual products that are fine utilizing UPS quote module and/or Table Rate for USPS first class mail packages.
But, we also have a unique line of product (billboard style cabinets) that exceed the weight limitations of carriers (the largest being 475lbs). It's a drop ship type dealer situation, where the shop that actually produces the product sends it out. They provided a table of UPS zone rates based on their location, etc. Region Tables module worked Perfectly!
On to my question:
It's a bit confusing, when testing the checkout, to have those rates in the Region Tables module showing for magazines, shirts, hats, and other small items we would be shipping. Based on several other forum posts, there are some people who seem to know how to possibly limit a shipping method to a specific category, given the master category ID matches, etc.
I must have missed the actual instruction on how to accomplish this, also with regard to the combination of shipping modules I am using. Would anyone be able to instruct me as to how to accomplish this, where the shipping method (region tables) we are using exclusively for the cabinet line can be hidden or not provided as an option when products from the "cabinet line" category are not present in the shopping cart?
Thanks for taking time to read this thread. As many people here, I'm on a time crunch and am trying to fulfill requirements set by my employer.
Thanks in advance!
