Description

Details

This Canada Post Shipping Module is one of the most sophisticated online shipping services available today. Magento uses your product's weight and dimensions to calculate the most accurate rates possible using Canada Post's unique features.

A Canada Post account records information such as the warehouse postal code, handling charges, pick-up times, fulfillment times, delivery options, and box sizes. Using their Sell Online account, you will be able to enter the types of boxes used for packaging. Magento and CanadaPost use this information to determine the appropriate box size for a customer’s order, as well as calculate the specific delivery costs. Using Canada Post's Shipping module, as integrated with Magento, you can present accurate shipping costs for any delivery point in Canada, USA, and worldwide.

In order for Sell Online™ to calculate order specific rates you will need to record the dimension and weight of your inventory. Remember that once this data is captured, you will not be required to measure and weigh each parcel for shipment.

Note the installation requires some modification to the product attributes.We also offer a professional version that is Magento Enterprise compatible and automatically creates all product attributes for you.

    FAQs

    Q: In your installation document, you stated: You need to setup product attributes of

    LengthWidthHeight Readytoship
    I understand length, width, height section, but what value needs to go for "Readytoship" attribute?

    A: Ready to ship is a flag for the Canada Post system to know it should not attempt to put the item into a box with other items and treat it as it is already boxed.

    Q: Weight threshold - you said "it will select default measurements based on the weight threshold of products (if the L W H of a product is not set)", so does it mean default weight of the product? what value needs to go in here? decimal place weight?

    A: If the product has no LWH depending if the weight falls above or below this value, the product will be assigned the low LWH or the high LWH.
