Is there any module that might support shipping, ex. UPS or Canada Post, or any module that might work based on the postal codes of my customers. The basic module is not really working on my site and all shipments come free to buyers. I'm using the newest versions of virtue mart and joomla.

HI,

Will this be available as a commercial or non-commercial plugin?

I am posting here because I keep getting requests for a Canada Post plugin for VM 2.

Please contact alatak, she should have a working plugin within a day or two.

I have fixed a version of her plugin for a company and they should be giving her back the revised version. Issues fixed:
- parse errors (vendor postal code empty)
- DOMDocument warnings
- countries arrays empty (plugin params not set) causing no results returned
- rates formatting (replaced de-predicated function with numer_format)

If you can not reach alatak pm me and I'll put you in contact with the person that has the working code, maybe you can work something out with them.

Ok, people kept asking so I built as plugin for Canada Post Sell Online.

You can order it here http://www.exps.ca/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=87

This plugin is completely tested and ready to go, even with CPC logos...oh my!

Want to see it working, go to the demo http://www.exps.ca/vm2demo/

NOTE: You must be on VM2 version 2.0.6

Bonus: If you buy now we'll show you how to force shipping rate update when address or cart quantity changes!

I found out today from Canada Post that they will no longer be issuing Sell Online API profile logins.
This means that you can not use either my CPSOL-1.2.6 module for VM 1.1.x or CPSOLVM2 plugin for VM2 to get Canada Post rates unless you already have a CPC Sell Online login.

The alternative is to use the new Canada Post getRates API, which I have developed a connector for (not Virtuemart). The API is straight forward and could be ported to VM2 plugin, however there is an issue with how the new API works.  I don't think it makes sense to port to VM 1.1.x.

With the new API your request has to contain the package dimensions as well as the package weight. Basically, CPC has removed the packaging function from their API and now expects the e-commerce application to determine packaging. VM 1.1.x does not have this capability. I'm not sure if VM2 handles this. If you have one item cart - no problem, if there are multiple items in the cart you have to determine overall package size, number of packages (means serial rate requests), etc... before sending the request for rates.


If you need Canada Post rates on a NEW site send me an email (no PM's I don't receive them) and if there is enough interest I'll develop a new solution for VM2.
