We are doing some county shows in 2015 and hopefully will take orders, as well as sell some clocks off the stand. For those buying off the stand clearly there is no shipping costs, likewise now if someone local buys a clock they often collect, or in some cases they buy a bulk amount and send or arrange for their own carriers to collect, how can i add a free facility for shipping where the customer is collecting. I use weight based shipping.

Nice and simple please, plain language new to opencart, thanks.

Your help would be welcome.

Many thanks

Hi Phil

The easiest way is to change the text for the 'Free Shipping' extension to 'Free Local Collection' - but this relies on you not wanting to use the free shipping option at all. Is that an option for you?

If if is, then simply change the text in your language file.

I have previously used geozones to restrict this option only to certain local postcodes - but if you are offering this to anywhere (if the buyer organises their own courier service) then this might not be necessary for you.

Simples ;)

ps can post the files and lines of code to change if needed, but don't want to take away all your fun...
