New additions for Version 1.2.7

Postby Brent » Mon Jul 11, 2011 6:14 am

Australian post rate calculator is the first shipping rate calculator to be added.
This module calculates shipping based on weight and dimensions of each shipping parcel.
Items in the cart are packaged to meet the shipping dimension and weight limits.
Rate per package and total order weight are shown on the shipping page.
A sample order below.

I'm still not sure I understand.
If you are referring the the language in the display above, what you see is a response from Australian Post.
You can't change the language. They only use English.
If I am not the wrong track, please explain in more detail what it is you want to change.

In the file under catalog/language/english/australian_post.php I can see this :
//Data
$_['service_methods'] = 'Standard,Express,Aereo,Mare,Economico';
$_['maximum_weight'] = '15000';
$_['maximum_length'] = '900';
$_['maximum_width'] = '0';
$_['maximum_height'] = '0';
$_['maximum_circumference'] = '1400';
$_['minimum_length'] = '150';
$_['minimum_width'] = '150';
$_['minimum_height'] = '5';
// Error

I thinked these are the range for the australian post .
If i change this value , this module should work for italian post .
But I don't know where I set the cost of shipping !

Actually, those language settings are deleted in next SVN addition.
Weight and dimension have been modified to use English as the default language and then overwrite with current language if not English. This fixes a problem whit the current cache which only included the default language.
In the Australian post method, the settings you saw in language are now included in the controller.
These are hard coded and are the values specified by Australia Post.
There are no rates. These are all calculated in real time by Australia post.
We create the packages, including package dimension and package weight, send the information to Australia Post, and the returned result is what you see on the shipping page.
As for your question about this working for your post method, I can guarantee it won't. I just did Canada Post as my second addition and nothing much was the same. The data exchange and data formats where totally different.
Australian Post use Post method and Canada Post Uses XLM B2B method.

Ok , I understand you .
So , right now I have two options:
1) Set max value of weight and stopped if the order is over
2) or ???? How can I limit the volume ?

If you are using the zone or zone plus, You can't.
Volume has never been an issue with those before.
The volume is a problem more specific to the online mail methods because they all have maximum dimensions they will accept.
What method will you use and will there be more than one shipping method.
If you only using one method, you make products too large non shippable.
