anyone care to advise on how to remove the "Estimate Shipping and Tax" option on Shopping Cart page ?

In your local.xml file, add the following. This should remove the block.

    <remove name="checkout.cart.shipping" />
  • It's worth pointing out that Delphin's solution works, however, it isn't as "update friendly" as mine, as it expects you to have a copy of checkout.xml in your local theme, and this might change when you upgrade and you'll be missing the updates. Jul 10, 2014 at 14:09
  • Thanks. But where's this file located ?

  • /app/design/frontend/your_package/yourtheme/layout/local.xml Jul 10, 2014 at 14:21
  • Thanks. Would that be tempmela.xml in /app/design/frontend/default/MAG090172/layout

    local.xml does not exist out of the box, you have to create it (it contains layout upgrades and obviously empty store doesn't have any).

Check this and put in your theme's local.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
        <reference name="content">
            <remove name="checkout.cart.shipping"/>

Remove the following code from below file.


<block type="checkout/cart_shipping" name="checkout.cart.shipping" as="shipping" template="checkout/cart/shipping.phtml"/>

Finally Clear the cache in the admin panel.

  • Never remove anything from layout xml file, jut do it in your local.xml file. Nov 29, 2018 at 5:53
