Feature Spotlight: Canada Post Shipping Module

NitroSell 11 December 2009 • Features

Recently, we released a Canada Post shipping integration module to the Beta and Early Adopters’ versions of NitroSell e-Commerce. If your webstore is currently on this version, you can access the new module using from the Shipping & Taxes section on your WebStore Manager (WSM). Detailed configuration instructions and support can be found in KB article #486 (Configuring Canada Post Shipping Options). Using your personal Canada Post / Sell Online merchant dashboard you can configure options such as:

  • Insurance Fees
  • Handling Fees
  • Signatory Requirements
  • Fuel Surcharges
  • Custom Shipping Boxes

It is assumed that you already have a Canada Post merchant profile, so, before using the Canada Post shipping module, you will need to enter your Canada Post Merchant ID as detailed in KB article #131 (Configuring Shipping Options). As with our other shipping integrations, Canada Post requires that you first set up the various shipping services in RMS and synchronize those to your store, of which the following are supported:

Within Canada:

  • Regular Parcel;
  • Expedited Parcel;
  • Xpresspost;
  • Priority Courier.

From Canada to the US:

  • Small Packet-USA Surface;
  • Small Packet-USA AirExpedited Parcel-USA;
  • Commercial Expedited Parcel-USA;
  • Xpresspost USA;
  • Priority Worldwide USA.

From Canada to Worldwide:

  • Small Packet International-Surface;
  • International Parcel-Surface;
  • Small Packet International-Air;
  • International Parcel-Air;
  • Xpresspost-International;
  • Priority Worldwide.

If you are a Canadian merchant and would like to move your store to the Beta or Early Adopters’ versions to access this new feature, please feel free open a support request on the Partner Portal. We look forward to your feedback!
