Canada Post in eCart?

Hello,

I understand that the Canada Post shipping option is available in Power Store, which in turn uses eCart's functionality to process its cart transactions.

However, eCart does not have Canada Post functionality included it in natively.

How hard would it be to have Canada Post added as a shipping option? It would be very beneficial for your Canadian customers, and as the code most likely already exists, it shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

At this time there are no Formal plans to include Canada Post in eCart, but it will most likely be added as a new feature to eCart 6.

In that case, how can I go about setting up Canada Post shipping on my Canadian websites?

At this time Canada Post is not supported in eCart, you would need to hand code this to add it to your existing eCart sites.

eCart - How to implement a custom shipping provider?

Hi Jason,

Yes, I did figure out that answer from your original response, let me rephrase:

I need to implement Canada Post shipping in a site for a Canadian client, can you please provide me with some information as to how I can go about implementing an additional custom shipping provider?

Thank you.

You would need to reference the API for the custom shipping provider. Using their API you would need to hand code the logic to return the rate quote from them.

there are no simple step by step instructions I can give you for this. You need to write the code that will perform the shipping rate lookup using the Canada Post API as a guide.

Where does one integrate this with eCart? :)

the shipping rate lookup occurs on the confirm page.

You can see an example by using USPS or UPS in the eCart wizard, you can use that information to figure out how to integrate the custom shipping method code.
