  • @RaphaelatDigitalPianism, how would you get the shipping method of a particular object? Like for tracking if i wanted to include it in an email or even display on a page the particular code they chose on checkout.

As per as magento system,for a shipping method,it method code is define in it's Shipping method class.

In cofig.xml,magento define it model class.

Example: <model>shipping/carrier_tablerate</model>

On that model class,You can get method name from $_code variable

Example: for table rate method:

class Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Tablerate
    extends Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Abstract
    implements Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Interface

 protected $_code = 'tablerate'; // this method code:

Here is a function to retrieve all the shipping method codes (based on this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9433627/programatically-retrieve-list-of-all-shipping-methods)

public function getAllShippingMethodsCode()
    $methods = Mage::getSingleton('shipping/config')->getActiveCarriers();

    $options = array();

    foreach($methods as $_ccode => $_carrier)
        if($_methods = $_carrier->getAllowedMethods())
            foreach($_methods as $_mcode => $_method)
                $_code = $_ccode . '_' . $_mcode;
                $options[] = $_code;

    return $options;
  • please put this as command or descibe somehing

    Check this file: Webkul_Mpperproductshipping_Model_Carrier_LocalDelivery that's where the code should be declared. Or paste the code if you want. Sep 28, 2015 at 7:25

even u can use SOAP webservice calls to see the Shipping method codes like this

$proxy = new SoapClient('');

$sessionId = $proxy->login('cats', 'sudhir123');
echo "\nSession Id = ";
$cartId = $proxy->shoppingCartCreate($sessionId, '3');
echo "\nCart Id = ";
$result = $proxy->shoppingCartShippingList($sessionId, $cartId);   
echo "\nAvailable Shipping methods = ";
