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.
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.
