Canada Post Shipping Module 4.0 versus v1.1

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I added/updated the "Canada Post Shipping Module v1.1" (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/391) to a clients cart in December 2007 and have not needed to visit here since.

 

The client has just requested I "add/include" GST and Fuel Surcharges to the shipping charges displayed to the customer so I am here in the forum to see if anyone else has encountered/fixed this issue.

 

So now I see there is a "Canada Post Automated Labels 2.2.1 AND Canada Post Shipping Module 4.1" (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5842) listed that I never noticed before.

 

Can somebody please advise -

 

1. Is the Canada Post Automated Labels 2.2.1 AND Canada Post Shipping Module 4.1 an UPDATE for v1.1?

2. OR Is it a total REPLACEMENT for v1.1?

3. Does it address the GST and Fuel surcharge issue?

4. Will I have to UNINSTALL v1.1 to use this "new" version?

 

Any and all comments/advise is welcome, Thanks

The Automated Labeles and Shipping Module combined package is basically the older 3.1 shipping module with dimensions support that has been enhanced to use the standard osc unit configuration as well as modified for integration with automated labels. I enhanced the Automated Labels code and added integration with the shipping module.. it does require some specific cURL and SSL libraries but this package is only required if you are looking at creating labels via your admin panel rather than directly with canada post web software.

 

GST depends on your tax setup.. as long as your taxes are configured properly in osC then your shipping calculations will also calculate GST/HST/PST correctly as well. Fuel surcharge is taken care of via your sellOnline account located on Canada Post.

Thanks for the reply and the info. I had eventually found the fuel surcharge checkbox in the CP "Shipping Profile" and will test with it set. cheers.

Sometimes I think that it would have been best to keep those modules separate. That way they could each be updated in their own right. IMO they are sufficiently different as far as implementation/functionality is concerned. It's always best to keep the modules as small as possible for more flexibility. What do you think?
