aust post module upgrade

Recommended Posts

i want to upgrade to the new version but it only comes with one set of files where as the one im using atm austpost_1 you had 2 sets of files...one for includes/modules/shipping and the other for includes\languages\english\shipping.

 

with the new version AustPOST3.02 it only has one set and just says to replace the files.

 

tried that and got a whole heap of errors.

 

also does it allow you to set it for pre-paid satchels??

 

any help would be appereciated

Ah yes. Download the last two versions. The second last version is a full working version. If your webhost has stopped fopen, the laste version fixes this problem (use the language files from the second last version, plus the module files from the last version).

Is it really working though? I installed it, and then the latest 3011 files over it, and for some weird reason both parcel and express post are giving me the same rate?

Yes, it works.

 

Check your settings in admin for each module.

But there is no admin setting that could make it show the same rates for parcel and express post, not for two different weights.

Give all of your modules a unique sort order above zero.

Really that ought to make no difference, but in the spirit of bug hunting, one is 0, the other 99, there is a module in between and I get the same result.

It can make a difference, however there is an error in

insuredauspostexpress.php

and

auspostexpress.php

that you have detected. Thank you for picking this up.

 

To correct them, change the line in each that says something like

 

"http://drc.edeliver.com.au/ratecalc.asp?Pickup_Postcode=$frompcode&Destination_Postcode=$topcode&Country=AU&Weight=$sweight&Service_Type=STANDARD&Height=$sheight&Width=$swidth&Length=$slength&Quantity=$shipping_num_boxes");

 

change it to something like

 

"http://drc.edeliver.com.au/ratecalc.asp?Pickup_Postcode=$frompcode&Destination_Postcode=$topcode&Country=AU&Weight=$sweight&Service_Type=EXPRESS&Height=$sheight&Width=$swidth&Length=$slength&Quantity=$shipping_num_boxes");

 

ie, change the service type.

Thanks for all this coopco.

 

Express post can be pretty expensive if satchels are not used.

 

I wish to use express post in satchels as well as offer Auspost express parcel option - can I do this here?

 

I currently use a bodgy setup that excludes express if weight is over 3kg

 

I am asking before uploading the new files as my system already works and don't wish to change it until I am sure it will do what I want.

 

thanks again

If it aint broken, don't fix it.

 

However, there are two versions in the last zip I put up, one uses curl the other uses fopen. I have fixed the bug in the curl version, so if you are goung to upgrade, go with that one if your server supports curl. A lot of webhosts are removing the ability to use fopen.

 

The earlier satchel version should still be ok, it is just a table rate.

 

Remember to back up your files and db before you do anything.

 

BTW, I take no credit for these modules, it is the work of the original and subsequent authors.

Of course much thanks to Steve Kemp, I have been using the original modules for a while in various forms.

 

It doesn't do express post international prepaid and express post courier prepaid as well does it?

It does express post, not the others. It also has insurance options.

HI,

 

I only use the up to 500g and up to 3kg sachels not the nromal Express Post so how could I just offer this option. Is there some way I can can this?

 

I have the 3.11 version up from 3.01 I think.

 

Does this get it's info from Aust Post as they up their rates or are the values set in the mod?

 

Thanks,
