Hello Tito,

I need to brush up on the user interface as my business grows over the
next year.

To be honest, because I know the system and can do most things manually
we don't use it much. (we also use a menu which I created which builds
the store on our hard drives and ftps the results to the server)

But if an explantion of what's behind what you see, then I may be able
to help.

Basically the shipping methods are arranged sequentially in
/var/lib/interchange/yourstore/products/shipping.asc. The first field is
a code. That code has to match a code listed in
/var/lib/interchange/yourstore/products/country.txt. The second field in
/var/lib/interchange/yourstore/productsshipping.asc is the description
which appears on the checkout dropdown. the third field in
/var/lib/interchange/yourstore/products/shipping.asc is a shipping
value, or the location of a function, which queries UPS or Fedex or
Australia Post.

Usually the value returned (the shipping amount) is the value returned
by a a routine in the /usr/lib/interchange/code/UserTag directory; eg

The connection between the function specified in a particular line of
/var/lib/interchange/yourstore/products/shipping.asc and the program
which calculates shipping (for example by the www GET method for UPS or
Australia Post is that you will see a function called ups-query in
/usr/lib/interchange/code/UserTag/ups_query.tag, and in

If I have lost you I'm sorry. you may find that someone else can help
you with your admin questions,
