UPS Integration, limiting by state

Hey, I have a couple questions. I know that the shipping integration is coming in a future release... My question is, care to share a timeline? The alternative for me is, unfortunately, writing a bare-bones system in Rails myself and using the "Shipping module":http://shipping.rubyforge.org/ to get the job done. Second, any thoughts on *limiting* the states available? We're pitching several winery websites right now, and you can't legally ship wine to about half the states in the U.S.! I didn't know this until today, but apparently, it's quite illegal to ship to some of them! Therefore, we need a way to disallow some states. Willing to add this feature at some point? Thanks!

You can already disable shipping locations on a per state basic ( click on the 50 provinces in the region controller ) and even hand adjust the prices for each state.

I’m willing to bet its faster to setup the correct shipping prices then writing a whole e-commerce system. Even if you are using rails :)

Thanks for the reply, Tobias.

I must have overlooked the per-state feature, my bad.

I by no means look forward to writing an e-commerce system, but if my client has to have live UPS shipping price integration, I have little choice. Unfortunately. Because I’m really looking forward to putting some sites on Shopify. It’s a pleasure to use.

Then again, maybe I could hire someone to write something similar for $500. ;)

Tobi,

Is it possible to disable shipping to a given state on a per product basis? For instance, customer X buys a bottle of wine from us and lives in Illinois, so shipping wine is okay. Customer Y tries to buy a bottle of wine from us, but lives in a state where wine can’t be shipped. However, Customer Y also wants to buy a bar of soap, which we can ship to their location.

How does one limit shipping of certain items to specific states without doing it site wide? Or is it not currently possible?

Thanks in advance for your help (or to anyone else who has the answer). :)
