Sort your installed shipping methods by cost, module name, or method name. Offer a free shipping option when any one of several parameters are met. Use the default layout within the existing user interface or a template with tokens which allows you to customize the method selection table.
Select list or radio button group can be used to display the available methods. This module is for MIVA Merchant 5.x. We also have the corresponding module for an older version of Merchant.

Feature Details. Sort your installed shipping methods by cost, module name, or method name. This Miva Merchant module is used in conjunction with shipping modules which dynamically calculate cost, such as the UPS modules or the various World, State, or ZIP Code Zone modules.
The free shipping option can be implemented when the subtotal of the order or the number of products in the order exceeds the thresholds you establish in admin. Or you can allow free shipping when the weight of the order is less than your specified threshold. You also have the
option to give free shipping to all members of one or more designated availability groups or price groups. You can further configure the free shipping option by limiting it to specific countries (USA can be all states or just the
contiguous states). You can also remove the free
shipping option if certain products are ordered. It also has free shipping override, ie if every product in the basket is in your list of free shipping codes, then shipping is free no matter what the other parameters are set to. You define
what the free shipping label displays, e.g. Free Ground Shipping.
The module also provides a default message if there are no shipping methods which can be calculated. This message replaces the default message in Merchant. While you can leave it as Unable to calculate shipping methods, you can
change that to be more customer friendly, e.g. We will contact you to adjust shipping costs or To be determined.
Easily use the default layout within the existing user interface or a template with tokens which allows you to customize the method selection table. With the template you can replace the select list with a radio button group. You can also add a Select One option in the select list layout. When only one shipping method exists with the order, the list of methods is replaced
with a single line display and no selection is required. The method value is passed as a hidden input to the next screen. The template can have a header section which is configurable for every different country or group of countries.
You can hide or limit the shipping methods based on ship to country. Hence, you can designate certain shipping methods for domestic and others for international shipping. For US, you can even designate the continental US; excluding Alaska and Hawaii from the domestic shipping methods. No need to buy a separate module to hide certain shipping methods from international shipping.
Each method can have a different configurable message (text or html) which is displayed using
tokens. This message can be displayed on the order payment screen (the screen after shipping
method is selected) and on the invoice screen.
It can also be in the customer and merchant notification emails if they can implement module tokens in the format %module|sortship|html_message%. This eliminates the need to install a separate, custom module for checkout messages or rely on the
shipping module to have the message capability (many do not have it).
The module currently fully supports the mivasql configuration of MIVA Merchant 5. It also supports MySQL as long as load balancing has the data stored on the single MySQL server and
permissions are set correctly on the data
directories. This would be the case in most of the server setups. If you are using Merchant 5.x and your host is web.com, you will not be able to use this module due to the way they configure their servers. There are no known issues with
