    I have setup up 5 geographical zones each with 2 options of freight.
    I would like to have as my options...

    International Air 3 to 6 working days
    International Economy Courier 2 to 4 Days

    The days change depending on the zone selected
    However this will not fit on the limited 10 character space available. Can it be done ?

    Also I want to remove the below sentence that is present by default as I want to use my own sentence. Is this possible ?

    If you change your order, click on the button to calculate the new cost of delivery.

    Thanks for any help

    I can't test with USPS but it looks as though the 'Zone' and 'Options' names allow thirty characters.

    Where do you see the 10 character limit?

    Thanks Alan, yes you are right it is thirty. Which is still not enough but I can shorten my courier descriptions to be like...

    International Air 6 to 10 days

    I still want to remove the below sentence from beside the shipping button as it confuses many customers and I want to simplify it.

    {If you change your order, click on the button to calculate the new cost of delivery.}

    You might want to take a look at this thread about changing the standard wording in the shopping cart. Not sure if it will help or not. https://www.mals-e.com/viewtopic.php?id=10585&mid=10585&fid=2

    Debbie Q, your a genius!

    It took me a couple hours studying but it worked.
    I simply pasted the javascript used in the other forum into messages and general settings/shipping message. and altered the text to suit the message I wanted to provide.
    Thanks muchly Debbie
