I have a multisite setup with multiple custom shipping modules. Each store has different settings for free shipping etc.. (based on weight/value)

Everything works great from the front end, however on the backend the modules take the default values and do not recognize that a store has been selected.

I can detect if it is an admin order, but no idea how to detect what store has been selected and how to get the variables for that store

I am using the following

$current_cart_total_inc >=Mage::getStoreConfig('general/custom_values/free_ship_threshold');

How can I detect the store and then get the correct value based on the store ID rather than use the admin one?

You can get store value with below code: to get store id in adminend


for frontend

$store_id = Mage::app()->getStore()->getStoreId();
$current_cart_total_inc = Mage::getStoreConfig('general/custom_values/free_ship_threshold', $store_id);
  • There is no orderID as this is a shipping module, the order does not exist yet

  • add the code for current store id you can check this Jul 26, 2016 at 10:58
  • That does not work as the storeID is returned as 0 as it is an admin order

    Thanks, I fixed it with $store_id = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('store_id'); $current_cart_total_inc = Mage::getStoreConfig('general/custom_values/free_ship_threshold', $store_id); Now the shipping modules work frontend and back
