Hi I am working with J1.5.9 and VM1.1.3

I am struggling with Australia post shipping on a couple of sites now. It did work really well until recently
My error is

Warning: file() [function.file]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/nmwcom/public_html/s1/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/shipping/auspost.php on line 43

Warning: file(http://drc.edeliver.com.au/ratecalc.asp?Pickup_Postcode=2298&Destination_Postcode=2303&Country=AU&Weight=1000&Service_Type=standard&Length=250&Width=250&Height=250&Quantity=1) [function.file]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /home/nmwcom/public_html/s1/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/shipping/auspost.php on line 43

I have tried uploading the modified auspost files and the error message just became longer.
Any advice here please
Cheers

Hello,

I have just installed the Australia Post shipping on Virtuemart and I think it's great ! I only got one problem : our products are usually sent in an envelope but when I try to order one of our product (we put the right dimensions and weight) it's a minimum of $5.20 for the shipping cost.

I think that it comes from the fact that it's business shipping. Can we set an "ordinary" shipping ? Generally we just send our product with a 50cent envelope.

Thanks in advance,
Loïc

Hello Laurie_Lewis,

I just want to thank you for your modified auspost module. 

When I first set up my website, I couldn't get the auspost module to work correctly.  As mentioned in earlier posts, it wasn't recognising international postcodes.

At the time, no one had any solutions, so I had to use the default shipping module whereby I had to enter each individual rate for standard, express and international rates.  You can't imagine how long and tedious that was to do. 

To cap it all off, each year I had to update all the rates when Australia Post changed their rates each 1 July.

This didn't even take into account insurance.  I was going to have to do all the rates again but add the insurance costs.

So only the other day I did some searches on this module and came across your modified one.

I have uploaded and it's working exactly how I wanted it.  Now all I have to do each 1 July is update a few figures in the cfg.php file.

So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making my life so much easier.

However, just one thing - I didn't see the delivery confirmation fees come up.  I know you did say in your post that you had added it but hadn't tested it.

This is no major biggie for me, as I'm sure not that many people will opt for it but all the same, if you have got it working, I would love a copy of your files.

Thanks again and a BIG THUMBS UP for all your effort to help us out.

Kindest Regards

A BIG thank you to all the contributors on this thread.

I was about to say that the prices didn't match with Aus post but I had forgotten to take into account the handling fee on the shipping! Doh!  ;D

So thank you everyone I now have a working Aus post calculator and my client will be soooo happy!

Regards,
Karen

I have uploaded the files, configured the shipping module to auspost and set the checkout structure and product dimensions and weights - but it will not pick up a shipping charge in the checkout process.

I have changed to flex shipping and it still doesn't... very frustrating.  Any Ideas

I think I'm having the same issue.. When you get to step 2 shipping the frame is just blank ?? Well thats what I get.. Really frustrating.. Have the same setup on another site, but with demo items and it works like a treat.. 1.5.14 / 1.1.4

Hi all.

I am a little confused with all the mods here, and need something that will allow buyers to select from the following Australia Post options:

Standard Post
Standard Registered Post

Express Post
Express Registered Post

International Standard Post
International Registered Post

and these options with or without insurance.

Is there anything available that does this? Ive tried a few but the registered post doesnt seem to be an option users can select?

Hello everyone and anyone.
I'm looking for a solution to the following:
I'm using VirtueMart 1.1.4 stable with auspost_oseas
Configure Ship Method    1.0.5    Ben Wilson - Modified by iDomain    idomain.com.au 
The problem I'm having is:
If a customer purchases multiple items in the one checkout, the sum of the weights of these items are calculated together.
My product "The Rockbox" www.rockbox.com.au is quite large and needs to be shipped separately and have individual shipping charges.

Is this possible to achieve?

All help is much appreciated.
Regards

Steve

Dear All,
I saw somany users contribute for this auspost module during last few years.
But last versions in this module had a issue. AusPost support only upto 20kg parcels and if order weight more than that then it returns "Invalid weight Parameter" error. I did a very small change to overide that errror and give a discriptive error.

The one I used here is the latest version posted here on 2008 Oct 17th.


So this version will have all the options upto today. Such as
 01. Overseas Post
 02. Registered Post
 03. Insurance option

But unfortunately this dont show any images related to the post method. So anyone who expert here can add that to this module. It will be really good if someone add that facility with enable and dissable images using configuration option as well.

Thanks for everyone who contribute to this.

This is great the amount of work that has gone into this though I cannot calculate envelope size? for 0.55c anothing below a certian weight 'Australia Post shipping calculator failed, reason: Invalid Weight Parameter'. The product is 0.0005 in weight. If I up the weight to 0.001 the price is $4.35.

How can I geti it to display $0.55?

Hi,
I have tried the last Laurie Lewis zip and have hit a hurdle.
Australia Post has a length limit of 105cm in length and 140cm girth via standard post.
If I exceed these limits when I add a new product - and then try and buy that product - the module accepts it and posts a postage cost. So I need the module to recognise when a length or width limit has been exceeded and to fail gracefully with some kind of warning.

Anyone any ideas?

Delequah, is that still accessible on your end?

I get this: 'The file you are trying to access is temporarily unavailable'
