DHL and Worlwide Express

Recommended Posts

I have a customer who uses DHL as their shipping carrier but use rates by Worldwide Express. I have installed the DHL module but need to add information so that it will retrieve the correct rates by Worldwide Express. I have been told that this can be done and they sent me instructions but I have no idea how to do this. Can someone help me? I have posted the info from WWE below. Any help would be greatly apprediated. Thanks!!!

 

Rate Matrix Access API

 

The external rate matrix access has been provided for customers using a third party online ordering or shopping cart system. It provides estimated costs for each of the 4 service levels, in a comma-separated format. In order to retrieve rates, 4 pieces of information need to be provided.

 

fromZip - Origin zip code

toZip - Destination zip code

weight - Package weight, for letter, use weight=0

acctNum - Account number requesting rates

length - package length (optional)

width - package width (optional)

height - package height (optional)

res - if address is a residential address (res = true) (optional)

insurance - Additional Protection (insurance) amount(optional)

 

This request can be sent by either an HTTP GET or POST operation to the following URL:

 

http://www.wwexship.com/rates/GetRates.jsp

 

Example URL:

http://www.wwexship.com/rates/GetRates.jsp...p;insurance=100

 

Making this request will return two lines of comma separated data. The first line is the service level, and the second line is the corresponding pricing. For example

 

GND, NAS, SDS, EXP

$6.50, $12.25, $7.85, $14.00

 

Anyone who prefers not to process this data and display it in their own format may use http://www.wwexship.com/rates/DisplayRates.jsp to have it displayed in an HTML table.

 

Example URL:

http://www.wwexship.com/rates/DisplayRates...ctNum=100880967

 

The data will be outputted in HTML table cells like this:

 

Rate for this item to zip code 60655
