Support » Plugin: WP eCommerce » Editing the checkout text

  • Resolved LSB Web Design


    Hi I am looking to edit some of the text contained on the checkout page.

    Under shipping options is reads: Shipping – Choose a Shipping Rate

    I would like to change this to: Shipping – Choose a Shipping Rate(Spend £100 or more to qualify for free shipping)

    I have tried to edit the following file wp-e-commerce/wpsc-theme/wpsc-shopping_cart_page.php but I guess this is either the wrong file or I am doing it wrong.

    I have edited the following code: <tr class='wpsc_shipping_header'><td class='shipping_header' colspan='5'><?php echo wpsc_shipping_method_name().__(' - Choose a Shipping Rate ', 'wpsc'); ?> </td></tr>
    but it is having no effect.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • Hi there,

    Ray here with WP eCommerce Support. Have you try doing a text search for all the

    <tr class=’wpsc_shipping_header’><td class=’shipping_header’ colspan=’5′><?php echo wpsc_shipping_method_name().__(‘ – Choose a Shipping Rate ‘, ‘wpsc’); ?> </td></tr>

    I am assuming that you will append a string to “Choose a Shipping Rate”. When I do it on my WPEC version 3.8.14, I am seeing 9 occurences. Please try to replace all of them.

    I found the occurences on

    wpsc-shopping_cart_page.php (2 different locations of this php file)

    Thank you,

    Hi thanks for the assistance. I didn’t originally build the site I am working on so I was unaware that some of the wp ecommerce files had been moved to the theme folder. Once I learned this I was able to edit it with ease.

    I know this is a little off topic, but I’m trying to remove the shipping calculator altogether.
    My client is only using weight rate, so a shipping calculator is redundant. I only have access to the CMS, not the hosting.
    Is there a way I can remove this section through WordPress or do I need to get onto the server and edit files on the domain? (Sorry if my terminology is a bit off!)
    I have already tried editing the file:
    completely deleting that section, but it made no difference to the front end.
    Any advice would be so gratefully received!



    @ subcutanea in the future please open your own topic, thanks.

    It is not possible to completely remove the shipping calculator as this is the only way to set the shipping destination.

    Essentially your store will be broken without it.


    Darn. Many thanks all the same Edward, and apologies for tacking onto this topic – tried starting a new one but got no response.
    Thanks again.



    Sorry if we missed your topic. We’re a small team and try to reach as many as possible.

    Keep an eye out for 3.9 or 4.0 this will be changing and may become more possible with these future releases.
