Hi all,
Currently I have the Australia Post Shipping Module working on my site.
It works well but it calculates all of the shipments to be sent as a parcel and not as a letter.

The problem occurs when some one is ordering something that is lite (under 250g). Because we sell a lot of products that can be posted as letter which only costs $1.10 as apposed to $4.40. For my work around I was going to make a “Table Rate” method that would allow a cheaper option for weight up to 250g.

The problem is that table rates work out the weight as “X weight and above” but I don’t wont this option to be available for a shipment that weighs more then 250g as this would have to be posted as a parcel and the other shipping module can take care of that.

My CSV file looks like this:

Country    Region/State        Zip/Postal Code    Weight (and above)    Shipping Price
AU                 
*                    *                 0                    1.1
AU                 
*                    *                 0.125                2.4
AU                 
*                    *                 0.250                 0

But as you can guess it leaves this postage option available at checkout as $0 postage cost.

I’m not entirely sure this will do what you want, but a suspect it will:

It is an AWESOME freight module, that I use in conjunction with the Aust Post module. Very flexible… Just read the docs carefully.

Cheers
