carrier modules/integrations

Recommended Posts

"Another point of contention we had was the removal of features from the core. PrestaShop 1.7 simply put, has less features than 1.6 had. Features were removed, then turned into paid modules to be sold. This is something we did not agree with."


"We have noticed that PrestaShop is no longer meeting our needs by keeping up with features. Features every other platform has, it does not. This is frustrating."


Are live carrier rates on the roadmap?   Prestashop paywalled their shipping modules while other platforms have live rates or more from different carriers/services free.

30bees/PS are in the minority here when it comes to shipping.  1 of my services even supports reverb but not PS.

I am using the PS 1.6 USPS and UPS modules without any issues.
I think the Fedex module works too but I haven't tested it.

Are you looking for a different carrier?

I tried out USPS 1.2.1 before but it didn't calculate rates correctly for me & sometimes it didn't show depending on the address for whatever reason; which version do you have?

Canada Post but would like to see other national ones in Australia, UK, etc with just weight rates or even something like netparcel.  I've been trying to build my own live rate module since rural/express shipping is a nightmare but I wondered if I should be doing it or not & if there's anything in the pipeline.

I am using USPS 1.3.5.
Seems to calculate rates fine for me, but of course, there's no box packing algorithm so sometimes it gets it a little wrong.
I believe the USPS module I'm using is only for domestic shipments, but the UPS module does have international options listed.

The usps module wasn't in the PS ddls and I could only find this http://svn.prestashop.com/tags/1.5.0.1/modules/uspscarrier/ earlier.  Canada Post is missing for whatever reason on their github.  I'll try my hand at modifying it later but still would like to know what's going on with shipping; it was mentioned a couple years back but no updates.

We have been using the Canada Post PS 1.6 module from Presteo-Changeo for three years.  It is very accurate, does a great job overall, not too pricey and very good support:

It plays well with TB as well.

I knew of that module; believe it was licenced per site and it still doesn't change that other platforms have maintained free shipping addons or that I barely see mention of PS in any of the shipping solutions I use. https://imgur.com/a/BdHnuhj is this not a concern for an ecommerce platform? 

 

edit

I just want to say that I don't mind paying for plugins especially for features/QOL like intl/dimensional/labels/returns/etc.  I just see other platforms progressing with their shipping either by the devs/community/shippers and PS/30bees seems stuck in that area.  All of my non-CP shipping solutions that I use right now have plugins for shopify, most of them for woo/magento but none for PS.

I agree with you the free shipping modules could be improved, such as the USPS module and so forth.
It would be really great to have official TB versions as well, at least for the main shipping carriers.

However, to be fair, Shopify charges a monthly fee to simply use their platform at all, and woocommerce doesn't even offer free domestic USPS calculation anymore. My understanding is, as of later last year unless you're a preexisting shop (which were grandfathered in), they now request you to pay $79/year. I have a grandfathered in shop that calculates for free, but I opened up a different, new shop on woocommerce earlier this year, and at the moment, all I can even offer is flat rate shipping on there, because woocommerce doesn't give me any other functionality.
