  1. Support thread for PayPal Automated Labels Mod PayPal Automated Labels Canada 1.0 ================================== Original Author: Alexei Karpenko Initial Release: 2009-08-13 Features ======== - Ships Light Packets Air electronically via Canada Post using PayPal shipping - Also ships via other methods available with Canada Post through PayPal - Returns GIF file from PayPal server with the label to print - Adds description for customs for each product - Adds Harmonization/Tariff code for each product - Adds country of manufacture to each manufacturer - Proper invoice for customs Change Log ==================== Version 1.0 (2009-08-13) - initial release with Canada Post support Introduction by the original author =================================== This modification allows to ship an order electronically by submitting data to PayPal server which then returns a GIF file with a label that should be placed onto the package. Most of the information is automatically filled out given the order data. This is especially useful to Canadians as Canada Post does not provide any API to electronically ship Light Packets Air. It's very time consuming to ship them in person at the local postal outlet. Luckily, PayPal allows to ship those via Canada Post electronically. What this modification does is pretend to be a human. It goes to the PayPal site and traverses it filling in all the fields like a human would. That's all done with PHP and Curl magic. Screenshot included in the package. Requirements ============ - Canadian PayPal account - Mod tested with PHP5, Curl

    some question about Canada Post mod

    If it's just paper, you could send it as documents. Otherwise, if your package is 2cm in thickness or lower, there is Light Packets Air. It's only available at the postal office or via PayPal shipping: https://www.paypal.com/ca/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_ship-now There is an automatic shipping labels mod for PayPal, just look under my contributions.

    Canada Post Automatic Labels

    Is this returned when you ship through the Canada Post website? If yes, then it could certainly be parsed out.

    PayPal Automated Labels, Support Thread

    PayPal doesn't return it unfortunately. But there are two ways that it could be done: (1) Route PayPal emails to a script that parses out the tracking number and updates the order (2) Use phpOCR or similar to read the tracking number from the GIF label

    USPS Shipping Labels

    The solution is:0.- Search "usps shipping labels" in contributions resulting in http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1498

    Sure, you can modify it as it's open source. I would add USPS, but I don't have a US Paypal account to test with :S
  9. Why do you have notifySender* enabled but no senderEmail specified?
  10. They seem to have some kind of outages with their servers. I wasn't even able to login from the Canada Post website for some time. It just said that password is wrong... But it's working again now. Always check first if you can login manually to see if it's a problem on their end.
  11. According to the error, products_dim_type column doesn't exist.

    Paypal Shipping Integration

    There is no API for shipping, however I made a PayPal labels module for osC 2.x which uses their web interface that you might be able to adapt.

    What shipping methods work with Authorize.net?

    OK, so there are two separate and independent shipping parts in osCommerce: 1. shipping module: quotes prices to your customers 2. shipping labels module: lets you print labels from the admin backend You said that for 1. zone rates works well for you. Now as far as I understand you used to ship the orders from paypal.com? Because that's actually eBay shipping, none of the other payment processors have that. This is where 2. comes into play. There are two modules worth looking into for your case: usps shipping labels (should work out of the box) PayPal Automated Labels (would have to be adjusted to work with USPS) Once you install one of these mods, you'll be able to ship directly from admin.

    What shipping methods work with Authorize.net?

    What does shipping have to do with your payment processor? Also, bumping is against board rules.
  15. I don't recommend using this module, since it's not being updated and since it's an unnecessary Frankenstein-mix of the following two modules: CanadaPost Shipping Module for showing your customers all available options and rates Canada Post Automated Labels for generating shipping labels in your backend It's better to use those directly as they are more recent and each is updated at its own pace. If you want to also ship Canada Post Light Packets Air, you can do so via the PayPal Automated Labels module, as this is not available directly though Canada Post website. If your shipping rates with Canada Post aren't great, you could use eShipper Integration Module in your backend for better rates when generating labels (this applies to Regular, Expedited, Xpresspost and Priority). Try eShipper quotes first to see if their rates are better. If starting from scratch, I would probably go with the free Magento eCommerce solution. osCommerce is too dated...

    Canada Post Automatic Labels

    Whoops, looks like I missed to include the changes to admin/includes/functions/ship_canadapost.php You need to add this function at the end of that file: function cp_post_var($var) { if(get_magic_quotes_gpc()) { return stripslashes($_POST[$var]); } else { return $HTTP_POST_VARS[$var]; } } I fixed this in the package with version 1.2.3.

    Shipping module request

    The Estimated Shipping Costs mod does just this.
  18. Yes, those are the ones that changed. Canada Post doesn't partner with Purolator anymore.
  19. Yep, they changed their login process again. I have updated my original mod with the changes. Also replaced the old Purolator methods with the new FedEx methods, since Canada Post moved away from Purolator. You can backport these changes to this mod, I guess...

    Canada Post Automatic Labels

    Canada Post Automatic Labels 1.2.2 ================================== Version 1.2.2 (2009-11-17) - Fix changed login process - Remove Purolator and add the new FedEx shipping methods Please see http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5445 to download
  21. How does your boxes list in http://sellonline.canadapost.ca/servlet/MerchantBoxServlet look like?
  22. Frontend part is where the customers get a shipping quote from your shop. Backend is where you do the shipments in Admin and receive labels. They are quite different things.
  23. Where are you getting "35.0 cm x 25.0 cm x 8.0 cm"? In the frontend part or in the backend part? Because they are completely different things. The backend actually is actually hard-coded and doesn't run any boxing algorithms AFAIK. The frontend should be working, but take a look at the boxing algorithm used. Usually you need to adjust it based on your own shipping procedures.
