I have been developing on the Magento platform for quite some time but have now come to the part of actually getting everything setup to go live!
I am very confused about how to setup custom shipping methods in Magento since we will be using three different carriers - Royal Mail, DPD/Interlink and FastWay(Ireland). Also, I am not at all sure where and how to add tracking numbers to the invoices for customers..?
I would like to setup the shipping methods based on parcel weight & destination but for products that ship to Ireland I need to send them using FastWay only. In addition, if orders are placed before 2pm they will be shipped the same day but I am not sure how to setup any of these rules and I have found myself looking and dozens and dozens of extensions but none seem to offer a solution. I'm going round and round in circles!
I have already implemented an ERP solution to handle order processing in the backend but how do I setup any custom shipping methods for the frontend?
I am also using MetaPack to print shipping lables.
I would be interested to know if anyone else has struggled with any of the above to please lend me some friendly advice on how to get past this issue...
