  • Change the way shipping options are displayed during checkout

    Right now as it stands customers can only see one shipping option unless they click on the tiny drop down carrot, many customers do not notice this and on my site they are by default shown ups ground which in many cases is the most expensive shipping rate i offer for smaller items, is there a way to make all options shown without that little carrot and if the answer is no how i can change it to default to another method?

    help would be greatly appreciated. I know for a fact a lot of people are bailing on checkout because of this. They add a pocket knife to their cart for $6.95 and see $12 shipping when in fact i have a $3.08 first class mail option.

    UPS does not like showing their rates along side of any other competitors, so they asked that this be implemented and this is going to be the way it always displays on the default installations.

    Now, should you edit the checkout template and change:

    Code:
    <div name="divShipping[OPTION-SHIPPER]" id="divShipping[OPTION-SHIPPER]" class="ship" style="display:none;">

    to

    Code:
    <div name="divShipping[OPTION-SHIPPER]" id="divShipping[OPTION-SHIPPER]" class="ship" style="display:block;">

    That should do it.....

      We created a custom shipping method for small items, which appears before any other calculated shipping options such as UPS, FEDEX etc.

            On the multipage checkout, you have to modify checkout-step2.html with GonzaloGil's code as referenced above.
