I'm trying to get available shipping methods and create an order in model. I have Flatrate and UPS enabled, and see these options in checkout on frontend.

Particularly, list of available methods is formed here:



$groups = $this->getAddress()->getGroupedAllShippingRates();

Here is my code in Model I'm using to create order:

        $email = '[email protected]';
        $websiteId = Mage::app()->getWebsite()->getId();
        $store = Mage::app()->getStore();
// Start New Sales Order Quote
        $quote = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')->setStoreId($store->getId());

        $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(1);
        $quote->addProduct($product, new Varien_Object(array('qty' => 1)));

// Set Sales Order Quote Currency
            $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')
        catch (Exception $e)
            $error['error'] = $e->getMessage();
            return $error;

// Assign Customer To Sales Order Quote

// Set Sales Order Billing Address
        $defaultBillingAdress = $customer->getDefaultBillingAddress();
        $billingAddress = $quote->getBillingAddress()->addData(
                'customer_address_id' => $defaultBillingAdress->getEntityId(),
                'prefix' => $defaultBillingAdress->getPrefix(),
                'firstname' => $defaultBillingAdress->getFirstname(),
                'middlename' => $defaultBillingAdress->getMiddlename(),
                'lastname' => $defaultBillingAdress->getLastname(),
                'suffix' => $defaultBillingAdress->getSuffix(),
                'company' => $defaultBillingAdress->getCompany(),
                'street' => [
                    '0' => $defaultBillingAdress->getStreet1(),
                    '1' => $defaultBillingAdress->getStreet2(),
                'city' => $defaultBillingAdress->getCity(),
                'country_id' => $defaultBillingAdress->getCountryId(),
//                'region' => $defaultBillingAdress->getRegion(),
                'region_id' => $defaultBillingAdress->getRegionId(),
                'postcode' => $defaultBillingAdress->getPostcode(),
                'telephone' => $defaultBillingAdress->getTelephone(),
                'fax' => $defaultBillingAdress->getFax(),
                'vat_id' => $defaultBillingAdress->getVatId(),

// Set Sales Order Shipping Address
        $defaultShippingAdress = $customer->getDefaultShippingAddress();
        $shippingAddress = $quote->getShippingAddress()->addData(
                'customer_address_id' => $defaultShippingAdress->getEntityId(),
                'prefix' => $defaultShippingAdress->getPrefix(),
                'firstname' => $defaultShippingAdress->getFirstname(),
                'middlename' => $defaultShippingAdress->getMiddlename(),
                'lastname' => $defaultShippingAdress->getLastname(),
                'suffix' => $defaultShippingAdress->getSuffix(),
                'company' => $defaultShippingAdress->getCompany(),
                'street' => [
                    '0' => $defaultShippingAdress->getStreet1(),
                    '1' => $defaultShippingAdress->getStreet2(),
                'city' => $defaultShippingAdress->getCity(),
                'country_id' => $defaultShippingAdress->getCountryId(),
//                'region' => $defaultBillingAdress->getRegion(),
                'region_id' => $defaultShippingAdress->getRegionId(),
                'postcode' => $defaultShippingAdress->getPostcode(),
                'telephone' => $defaultShippingAdress->getTelephone(),
                'fax' => $defaultShippingAdress->getFax(),
                'vat_id' => $defaultShippingAdress->getVatId(),
$quote->getPayment()->importData(array('method' => 'checkmo'));
$address = $quote->getShippingAddress();
// here things go wrong
$rates = $address->getGroupedAllShippingRates();

Only Flatrate in $rates, as opposed to checkout Block. What Am I doing wrong? Do I miss adding some vital info to quote?

Extra: Using code from this answer worked a bit: https://stackoverflow.com/a/12344228/6505678

// Update the cart's quote.
$cart = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/cart');
$address = $cart->getQuote()->getShippingAddress();

// Find if our shipping has been included.
$rates = $address->collectShippingRates()

This gave me the right shipping rates: flatrate and UPS. Maybe because I used 'checkout/cart' instead 'sales/quote'. But I couldn't add items and customer to the cart object as I added to quote object.

Is there a right way to do it?

The problem was in the address, I used non US address to test it, and UPS was not available.

Didn't pay attention to this small detail.
