Important Notes:
1. Starting with extension version 1.2.15 we have adopted a license key for all our extensions. Your extension will only work if you have a validated license key entered for the location where your extension is installed. Refer to here for more details on how license keys work.
2. In our opinion AbanteCart v 1.2.14 is extremely problematic and requires a large number of patch files to work correctly. Our recommendation is to upgrade v 1.2.14 to AbanteCart v 1.2.15.
This extension v 1.2.15 is tested to work with AbanteCart v 1.2.15. It may work with AbanteCart v 1.2.14 if all the patch files have been updated but we don't recommend you using AbanteCart v 1.2.14.

AbanteCart Version(s) 1.2.0 – 1.2.15 use USPS Integration v

USPS Integration: an enhanced USPS extension that supports all rates, including Dimensional Weight, Balloon, and Oversize Package Surcharges.

Plus these added features:
1. Additional Weight field to easily add standard packaging weight, rather than having to do it on each item.
2. Additional Fee field to add upcharge - can be fixed dollar amount or percentage of shipping rate.
3. If enabling Ship Product Individually but without having fixed price rates are calculated separately for that item based on weight or dimensions. If item is ordered with other items is it correctly added to total shipping fees, but not included in calculation of other items.
4. Works well with the default free shipping, default per item shipping, default flat rate shipping.
5. Ability to select Zip/Postal code(s) to offer local delivery service only. Local delivery service may be offered as free service or with a flat charge. Admin can show additional message in the checkout cart page to inform the customers about the local delivery service. Admin may choose to show just the local delivery service or all the shipping services offered for the selected Zip/Postal code(s).

Important Note:
  • Weight and length class must be set correctly within the System > Settings > Details page.
  • In Metric locations use: Kilogram in Weight Class fields and Centimeter in Length Class.
  • In US or other non-metric locations use: Pound in Weight Class and Inch in Length Class.
  • Using AbanteCart prior to v1.2.2: If you Edit Order Details as Admin within Sales > Orders the ReCalculation of a changed order is not supported. You need to change the shipping rate manually. If using AbanteCart v1.2.2 or later, it will update upon ReCalculation.
