Custom Shipping Provider - Order and Shipping totals do not update

Aaron Fickes asked on October 29, 2015 17:51

After following the directions here:
and reviewing and implementing the source code here:

The order total and shipping total does not update from the returned price from shipping provider's GetPrice(Delivery delivery, string currencyCode) method.

The shipping and payment stage of checkout shows the correct drop down of the 3 UPS service selections. During debug, I can follow the code when it hits the provider below, and it returns 3 prices upon showing the shipping service dropdown and returns a single price after selecting a specific service while proceeding to the next page. All the values returned from the UPS call are above $0.00 yet, the order and shipping totals do not update.

There are no service or carrier configurations in the CMS so we return Guid.Empty.

The site was originally at 8.2 and was updated to 8.2.43 to address this issue, but the problem remains. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help from Kentico support, as they pointed out the code is fine, but the sample e-commerce setup data needs to be updated to remove/disable the special offers of "Free shipping to US and Canada".
