User defined shipping

Stuart Rider asked on April 20, 2015 12:45

Hi, my client wants users to be able to specify their own shipping arrangements during checkout (e.g. the delivery company and account number to use). Is this possible? If so how can it be achieved?

Hi Stuart,

There is no such feature in Kentico, but it should not be a problem to custom implement it. You can extend the Shopping Cart and Order classes with custom fields, and then fill those fields with the shipping information using a custom checkout web part. Here you can edit these classes:

Development -> Modules -> E-commerce -> Classes

As long as the fields have the same name, they will synchronize between Order and Shopping Cart objects.

The checkout process in Kentico requires a valid shipping option unless you use products that do not have Needs shipping set. If this is not possible, then you will need to define a placeholder shipping option for your Customers to select. You could for example only make your custom shipping web part visible, if this placeholder option was selected.
