but still showing same problem.

Re: Fault 1062: 'Shipping method is not available



The problem is in the documentation of magento soap v2... When I have gone through the wsdl link, I have noticed somthing as below...

<message name="shoppingCartShippingMethodRequest">
<part name="sessionId" type="xsd:string"/>
<part name="quoteId" type="xsd:int"/>
<part name="method" type="xsd:string"/>
<part name="storeId" type="xsd:string"/>

As u can see, there's property method. Actually, there we have to add the shipping method... So u have to change ur code as below...

SoapObject shippingmethod = new SoapObject(MAGENTO_NAMESPACE,"shoppingCartShippingMethod");
shippingmethod.addProperty("sessionId", sessionId);
shippingmethod.addProperty("quoteId", quoteId);
shippingmethod.addProperty("method", "flatrate_error");
env.setOutputSoapObject(shippingmethod);"", env);
Log.d("shippingMethod", shippingmethod.toString());
Object resultforShippingMethod = env.getResponse();
Log.d("ShippingMethod", resultforShippingMethod.toString());

Re: Fault 1062: 'Shipping method is not available


I have set the property to method only. I have seen this solution here also

Re: Fault 1062: 'Shipping method is not available
