NZ Shipping Module

We are need a shipping module for courier post, nz post and retko haulage and are potentially looking at developing (unless anyone else is further down the track and wants testers).

For courier post we need to be able to set the shipping location in the admin, and then the required rates based on our pricing.

We also need to be able to integrate the shipping weight, choosing the heavier of either the volume weight (Length x width x height) x 200 = X kgs or the physical weight of a package and the destination its going to. The shipping weight should be relatively simple if we create shipping attribute fields for shipping length, width and height and then some code can work out which is heavier and take that as the weight to calculate from.

There is also the issue of how we handle different type of packages as some items can be sent in track packs (plastic courier bags) and others in our own packaging and ideally this needs to be built in as well.

In the front end the site needs to be able to dynamically calculate the cost of shipping for the customer during checkout, and also link directly to Courier Posts API’s to display the shipping details within the site once an order has been shipped.

For the other carriers it would be good to have a simple plug in for the backend that allows us to create single/multiple carriers who we send orders through. So would need to be able to enter name (defined in config) and tracking code to put around the tracking number (also set in config)

Fooman were you looking at developing this potentially?

Hi Ricky,

I am sure your requirements are similar to a few other NZ based companies. With a bit of luck you could join your efforts developing it.

At the last business expo I inquired with NZ Post if they had an API you can use for price querying. Unfortunately they only had their web based price tool. So to get the prices you either need to set up a complete copy of the price matrix yourself or need to scrape the information off their website. Both not ideal.

By the way I am currently not developing any shipping modules. I mostly use tablerates. This extension would probably be a good base to model your efforts on:

FYI: http://api.nzpost.co.nz/ratefinder/documentation

Interesting but is limited by the requirement to provide the dimensions of the package, which will prove difficult when more than one item is being purchased / sent. Ideally NZ Post would offer Weight VS Volumetric Weight which would compliment most online stores.

I just tried to work around the problem by creating a custom shipping rate based on the weight of the products. But this also does not show up for New Zealand.
