7 uc_quote.api.php hook_uc_shipping_type()

Defines shipping types for shipping methods.

This hook defines a shipping type that this module is designed to handle. These types are specified by a machine- and human-readable name called 'id', and 'title' respectively. Shipping types may be set for individual products, manufacturers, and for the entire store catalog. Shipping modules should be careful to use the same shipping type ids as other similar shipping modules (i.e., FedEx and UPS both operate on "small package" shipments). Modules that do not fulfill orders may not need to implement this hook.

Return value

An array of shipping types keyed by a machine-readable name.
