I need to figure out a solution asap for letting the checkout know that an order is placed by a logged in MODx WebUser (Wine Club Member), enabling free shipping on these qualifying orders. My client is getting irate (http://www.summerhill.bc.ca/
Currently I have a custom field called membership added to product links with the value Pyramid_Wine_Clue (for when a member is logged) and this is toggling a custom message. This is a messy solution as a cart may contain mixed values, plus the check fails completely if the user does not place any further items in the cart after logging in.
The current header message was temporary. Ideally, we'd like to toggle free shipping on orders of 12 bottles or more as per this discussion http://forum.foxycart.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=522
. That said I have been unable to get free shipping to display as a shipping option on the checkout pages (see pics).
Note: the site was built with MODx. login/register stuff is handled by the WebLoginPE snippet.
Last, could you please help me resolve: "free shipping" not being displayed as a shipping option.
P.S. my client is also quite concerned me about getting account specific rates through FedEx, as local orders now show a shipping quote that is 4-5 times what they should be. (UPS is not an option for them as shipping alcohol in Canada is a sensitive matter, and FedEx is the only carrier that has the guts to really). Note: this would be less of a priority if we could get free shipping enabled for their members, as the inflated shipping quote could be used help promote signing up for their wine club.
Any help is greatly appreciated. You guys rock. Someday, I'm sure we'll get "super" everything with Foxy modules for all our favorite CMS's.
