Magento – Sorry no quotes are available for this order at this time

Tech Monday comes back for a Friday specia on Magento 1.9.  Coming at this interesting piece of software from a Drupal background, lots of stuff make no sense at all.  The themeing system.  Modules.  The “Insert credit card here” approach to community support.  And the helpful error messages.

The error message

Sorry, no quotes are available for this order at this time

which came up on a new site using table rate shipping this morning was a new one and none of the answers I found worked, but they did get me thinking of where to look.

So the setup is as follows:

  • Multi-store installation
  • Issue occurs on newly launched store using default values for all shipping fields.

Turns out, the Table Rate settings don’t persist between stores.  Or they didn’t on this setup.

So, in System > Configuration, you select the store you want, re-import the table rate shipping values, clear the caches, and you’re good to go.  Or at least I was.  Your mileage may vary.  You’ll probably have to clear the caches again.  Magento likes it when you do that.

Have I mentioned that I don’t like Magento?
