How do I link my website to the UPS site so that at checkout the shipping charges would be calculated based on a pre-defined weight for each product and the destination?
For example, John Doe buys 2 products from my site, where each product has a weight attribute of 1.5 pounds. Therefore, once the customer states their shipping address, my site would link in some way to the UPS.com site and calculate a 3 pound shipment from my origin address to the customer’s shipping address.
Is this possible and how? And if possible, can I add a handling charge to the UPS charges?
This would sure come close to real shipping charges but not exact since they won’t be taking into account dimensional weight.
