Question

Shipping Carrier integration


We want to integrate our Ecwid webshop with a shipping carrier. They have their API, which if Ecwid could use then the actual order going to the shipping carrier company automatically. We and the buyer than receive email notification automatically.
So no need any personal work to process the shipment order, therefore the shipping carrier give us much better price on the shipping.
How to integrate the API in to my Ecwid store?
Or is there any contact person at your site to negotiate this topic?

Greetings,
we are sorry for the fact that the shipping carrier you prefer isn’t included. We will be glad to consider integrating this carrier into Ecwid. You may feel free to suggest this method in our ideas base http://ideas.ecwid.com/.

For now you can emulate the shipping rates this carrier offers you manually by applying a shipping method based on a custom table calculation. Open your Control Panel > System Settings > Shipping and follow the instructions from this article http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...ng#Customtable.

Hi,

thanks for sharing the instruction. Integrating Ecwid with a new shipping carrier is considered as a new feature. Let me explain how new features appear in Ecwid. Most of Ecwid features are implemented because of the clients’ requests. When we develop new functionalities, our aim is to choose the top-requested ones, beneficial and useful for as many merchants as possible.

Ecwid Ideas Base is one of the resources that shows us what features are currently in need. We analyse the suggested ideas, estimate their value to a wide range of Ecwid users and make a decision, which of them will be applied. Share your idea with us (post it in the ideas base) and we’ll consider its implementation. Thank you!
