Adding carrier programmatically

Recommended Posts



I'm makeing a module that contains it's own little order procces, but it's still using validateOrder from PrestaShop. I'm running

I got all but settings carrier to work.

The carrier id I want to set it to is 8, but when view it in  BO after it's been placed, it's using my default carrier with id 7. What am I missing?


$cart->id_carrier = 8;
$delivery_option = $cart->getDeliveryOption();
$delivery_option[$cart->id_address_delivery] =  8;

$id_product = (int)Tools::getValue('id_product');
$id_product_attribute = (int)Tools::getValue('id_product_attribute');
$quantity = 1;

$res = $cart->updateQty($quantity, $id_product, $id_product_attribute, false, 'up', $cart->id_address_delivery, $shop);

Hi Madman!


Maybe a bit late, but I've figured out the solution.


One problem is, that both id_carrier and $delivery_option[$cart->id_address_delivery] are not integers, but strings!


Also, the "$delivery_option[$cart->id_address_delivery]" string has a comma after it.


You have to also update the total price before you call the validateOrder function.



This code should work on PS


(if you plan to add a product to the cart, recalculate the $total variable after you change the cart content)

$cart->id_carrier = "8";
$delivery_option = $cart->getDeliveryOption();
$delivery_option[$cart->id_address_delivery] =  "8,";

$total = $this->context->cart->getOrderTotal(true, Cart::BOTH);

$this->module->validateOrder((int)$this->context->cart->id, Configuration::get('PS_OS_PREPARATION'), $total, $this->module->displayName, null, array(), null, false, $customer->secure_key);

I hope this will help somebody else.

I am using below code for cart creation and inserting carrier.   Carrier is set perfectly in the cart but in validateOrder() method another carrier set.

            $cart = new Cart();
            $cart->id_shop_group = 1;
            $cart->id_shop = 1;
            $cart->id_customer = $this->id_customer;
            $cart->id_address_invoice = $this->id_billing_address;
            $cart->id_address_delivery = $this->id_shipping_address;
            $cart->id_carrier = 9;
            $cart->delivery_option = @serialize(array($this->id_shipping_address => '9,'));
            $cart->id_lang = 1;
            $cart->id_currency =1;
            $cart->secure_key = $customer->secure_key;
            $cart->recyclable = 0;
            $cart->gift = 0;

Anyone has a good idea to set the carrier in order which we set in cart?
