Canada Post Weight etc.


Recommended Posts

Hi All:


A couple of questions about the Canada Post shipping module:


1- Is the weight metric or imperial? Is this something that's set in the admin section of osc? If so where?


2- How does Canada Post calculate the shipping price is we don't specify dimensions? Is there a link to the Canada Post website that would answer these questions?

just two words



i too used the cp shipping mod, paid one of the developers to correct a few bugs and to alter the code to return rates back to US funds (b/c this is my default currency)


but my problem is this:

using bubble packs, with weights less than 2 kg (btw this is what CP wants the measurements in)

when logging into the CP server backend, "defining your box" to the specifed measurements, it returns a whacky number, for example, if a customer was from europe and bought an item from me ( a soccer jersey) that weight .400kg, it would cost him $144 BUCKS!!!

but you go into a CP retail store and it costs $25 bucks flat rate.


shocking ain't it??


my case has been escalated to there 3rd level engeernering support, it has been 3 weeks now with no word.

there is a defently a problem/bug with the CP servers when using measurements that are not considered 'boxes"


hope you can salvage anything from my experiences...

Does this mod not allow USA pricing and canadain pricing?


if i login and have a product the shipping when using canadain default currency is 23.50 for shipping option 1


if i change default language to usa (currency changes as well to USD) then in the checkout i see 17.45USD for shipping



Is this not correct, is this what your all are asking about?

I've installed the canadapost 3 one (without dimensions) and indeed it does not change from C$ to U$ or whatever other currency is set up. So the shipping charge is passed as the numeric value for the C$ charge.


I posted a question about it in the General Support area, only because I wanted to find out where OSC does the currency conversion so I could add it to the CP3 module.


If CP w/dimensions works, then I'll switch to it... Only thing is that I found it used the same field names in the product table (length, width, height) which conflicts with some other contributions (and my own mods!).
