    Default maximum shipping weight

    I have set max shipping weight to 8 in configuration shipping. I tested it at 30 pounds and I got all the way to confirm order. I did not want to confirm order and create a sale so I quit at that point. I was expecting a message to popup that said my shopping cart was too heavy. Is that the way it is supposed to work?

    Thanks

    You do not need to double post, just the one is enough ...

    The Maximum weight setting is to break down the Maximum weight per box ...

    Wh ydo you need to have a Maximum weight per order of 8lbs?

    What shipping method(s) are you using?

    I am shipping from Italy to usa. Anything under 5 kilos is a flat 128 Euro. I dont want to ship anything over the 128Euro figure. So I just want to charge a flat rate for shipping and stop the order at 4 kilos. follow?

    What is the difference between limiting an ordr to 8lbs and me making 2 orders of 8lbs?

    nothng. that would be great. they can make as many orders of 8 pounds as they want to. I just dont have a shipping module for italy to usa. Flat works for me and I believe in the KISS principle. I dont want to see an order of 8 pounds and an order for 1 pound and shipping 127 euro times 2.

    Can't you just setup Zone Rate or Table Rate to charge for every 8lbs for the US?

    I also failed to mention that what I am shipping is somewhat fragile. And I dont want to put all of my eggs in one basket so to speak. I am limiting my liability by keeping the package size smaller and smaller boxes tend to be stronger for reasons defined by the laws of physics.

    Giving them the option to spill over 6 ounces into a second order is asking for trouble.

    You could edit the flat.php shipping module and add the code:
    Code:
    // class methods
        function quote($method = '') {
          global $order;
    
    global $shipping_weight;
    global $messageStack;
    if ($shipping_weight > 8) {
    $messageStack->add_session('shopping_cart', 'Orders must be 8lbs or less', 'warning');
              zen_redirect(zen_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART));
    }
          $this->quotes = array('id' => $this->code,

    Also you should set the Maximum weight back to 50, so that it does not split the weight into boxes ...
