I got this error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getPrice() on null in /home/.../public_html/vendor/magento/module-checkout/Block/Shipping/Price.php on line 71

So, after reading this solution here I altered this file:


However, I still keep getting the same error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getPrice() on null in /home/.../public_html/vendor/magento/module-checkout/Block/Shipping/Price.php on line 71

Which makes me think that Magento2 is ignoring my Block in Magento_Checkout, and defaulting back to Magento2's own core code.

How can I solve this issue (without editing the core code).

Is there something I need to do to register this Block?

Before I get asked:

I have deployed:

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

I have re-indexed:

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

I have cleared the cache:

php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush

And Magento 2 is in the painfully slow developer mode.

I have made alterations to the view files in /app/design/frontend/Package/Theme/Magento_Checkout/view/frontend/templates/... and these have all worked fine. They are not being ignored, only /app/design/frontend/Package/Theme/Magento_Checkout/Block is being ignored.

I think my problem here might be related, I have made changes to XML Layout for Magento_CatalogSearch but these changes are being ignored, and the default XML Layout is being used instead.

  • thanks for fixing that, was getting worried that me or my question was generating some hate for some unknown reason :) – Jimmery Apr 26 '16 at 14:47
  • I have the same problem, any news? :/ – Iazel Jun 10 '16 at 10:05

I don't know if this is the best solution, but to get ridden of the fatal error in a clean way you can override the template with:

    // app/design/My/Theme/Magento_Checkout/templates/shipping/price.phtml

    if( $block->getShippingRate() )
        echo $block->getShippingPrice();
