Overview:

Many stores want to have a simple shipping policy, but find that shipping to particular destinations caused additional expense. If this is you, Shipping Surcharge could solve your problem.

Shipping Surcharge allows you to add a fee to the order total when an order is being shipped to a specific zone. The fee can be a flat amount or a percentage of the subtotal.

Installation Instructions:

  1. Back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
  2. Copy the contents of the unzipped folder to the root directory of your shop.
  3. In Admin > Locations > Zone Definitions, create the Zone that should be surcharged. (If you have never done this before, here are the steps for creating a new zone in Zen Cart.)
  4. Go to Admin > Modules > Order Total, select Shipping Surcharge, and press the Install button. Set the amount of the surcharge, and set the zone to the zone you just created.
