Canada Post Shipping Module for WP e-Commerce

Are you a Canadian merchant or WP-ecommerce developer that wants to integrate Canada Post into their WPEC online shopping cart? The Canada Post shipping module integrates your Canada Post merchant account with the WP-Ecommerce shopping cart.

Note, you need to have WP-ecommerce (free) installed and a Canada Post merchant ID (free) for this to work. Download WP-ecommerce and read instructions on how to get a Canada Post merchant ID.

Canada Post is no longer issuing merchant ID’s that are required for this plugin. Download the new version of the Canada Post shipping module available for users who have signed up for Canada Post’s new developer API.

Installation:

  1. Upload the folder ‘wpec-canadapost-shipping’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Store -> Shipping in WordPress and activate the shipping module and insert your Canada Post Merchant ID.

Before you activate this plugin, make sure you:

1. Add your shipping box sizes in your Canada Post, Sell Online merchant account.
2. Have accurate measurements inserted for all your products.
*Make sure the box sizes are larger than the product sizes.

Or your customers may receive the following message: Sorry, online ordering is unavailable to this destination and/or weight. Please double check your destination details.

Disclaimer: The WPEC Canada Post Shipping Module does not work if your site is hosted on GoDaddy’s shared servers because it needs port 30000 for inbound and outbound requests. Godaddy shared servers block incoming requests on port 30000 so the shipping module will time out. Some other shared servers also have this problem with Canada Post inbound and outbound data transfers. Details about the issue can be found here on Godaddy.

If you are a developer, find this plugin useful and are planning to use this on multiple sites please purchase multiple copies.

Once again! Canada Post is no longer issuing merchant ID’s that are required for this plugin. If you do not have a CPC ID this plugin will not work for you. Download the new version of the Canada Post shipping module compatible with Canada Post’s new developer API.
