best practice international shipping

Post by boettner » 20 Oct 2015, 14:19

Hi,

as I couldn´t find something in the docs: is there a best practice advice on how to handle international shipping? My current state is to set up a decorator but I thought it´s ok to ask as this is something very common so there might be an option I have missed?

Delivery cost should be calculated depending on the customers country automatically.

Best
Robert.

There's a "Country" decorator which can show/hide delivery options based on country codes:
https://aimeos.org/docs/User_Manual/Adm ... rs#Country

If you have a lot of countries with different delivery costs, then configuring multiple delivery options for each country might be cumbersome. In this case, you can write a new decorator instead which adds the costs based on its configuration and feel free to contribute it to the core :-)
Professional support and custom implementation are available at Aimeos.com

Sorry I missed that in the doc jungle and thanks for helping.

That may be the case. I´m currently waiting for the customers requirements definition. If the matrix is too complex some logic will become necessary.
