Canada Post Integration Extension Documentation

Thank You for purchasing this extension.

Overview

Canada Post Integration: an enhanced Canada Post extension that supports all rates.

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.

More features when using our Special Shipping Image extension:

Add custom images to describe the free shipping, downloadable and individual shipping product, and you are able to display custom message too for customer on Checkout page, Delivery Information page, Shopping Cart page, Checkout Confirmation page, Order Invoice history, and on Order Confirmation Email.




This extension works with AbanteCart v1.2.0 - v1.2.4.
