minor bug miss configured config file for myshoping export. more info here: http://gondo.webdesigners.sk/fontis-australia-extension-bug/t March 28, 2013
Direct Deposit Feature Problem Was having problems with no direct deposit info showing on confirmation email/checkout (just blank spaces). Fixed it by copying /default/default/template/fontis to the interface that my theme was using e.g. /myinterface/default/template/fontis (Don't know if this is common knowledge as I am knew to Magento and assumed it would work regardless of theme/interface?) March 27, 2013
Works like a charm on 1.7, Accept I have'to disable Compilation!! :( Please fix this fontis team, Will give cookies! September 12, 2012
I have installed the extension and configured the settings in backend. But its not showing in frontend. July 31, 2012
http://auspost.com.au/devcentre/magento-extension.asp I found this, there is a bunch of settings and I'm diving in them now. Hope that you here can use this and tell others about this replacement to Fontis's Cheers June 19, 2012
no problems installing on my Magento ver. 1.7.0.0 / - i themed over default / default theme May 28, 2012
no not working on 1.7 .....and the Aust Post API has changed also. Be great to have it updated & click & send available. May 25, 2012
Those in a tight bind trying to install this on 1.7, Simply install using the downloader. Youll get the Error, Browse to your magento_root/downloader/.cache/community/ folder. You will find the Fontis_Australia.xxx.tgz. Grab that file and decompress the contents and place it into the appropriate magento folders. This will just install the extension manually and hopefully all should work. I havent found any issues yet. April 26, 2012
I've got the extension installed on 1.4 but I can't get rates for Australia (I get them for all other countries) and I always get 0 for the number of delivery days. April 20, 2012
Have tried multiple time to install this on 1.6.2 and keep getting the following error CONNECT ERROR: Can't write to file: /home/mdt/public_html/downloader/.cache/community/Fontis_Australia-2.0.7/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/fontis/australia/system/config/form/field/array_dropdown.phtml All other Fontis Add-Ons load and work perfectly. We have tried changing permissions, no luck there April 17, 2012

Answer: 
You can follow the instructions to use it or ask here of what issues you are facing.
You can not use this extension for Magento Go as you can see above the extension key in the drop down i.e Platform is Community not Magento Go.

I have successfully set the Table Rates for “Weight vs. Destination” for Australia.

Everything works great except one thing....

It never calculate the correct shipping rates…

Product A - $100
Shipping : $15
Total=$115

But when we put 2 qty of Product A, that brings the
Total to $215
where as it should be $230.

Would you please help me on that, or put more light on this issue.

Also can this ext helps me in any ways?

Running on CE 1.8. I found that I could not get any shipping results to show for domestic shipping.

SHORT ANSWER:
Tick the "Use Registered Post" option or domestic shipping will not show any methods.

LONG ANSWER
Can only assume bug, code doesn't seem logical here:

app/code/community/Fontis/Australia/Model/Shipping/Carrier/Australiapost.php around line 85 I found this little strange condition.

"if ($this->getConfigData('registered_post'))"
Note the lack of curly braces that surround this condition.

This condition appears to force all shipping methods to be hidden for domestic. This doesn't seem correct to me, if you you do not turn on the "Use Registered Post" option in your Aus Post Settings, you will just get no result for domestic.

For the moment I've ticked "Use Registered Post" so all the options come back, but I would assume the correct behavior is for this part of the code to hide any methods with Insurance options if "Use Registered Post" is left off (unticked). In this case

I hope this helps people. It has been bugging me for about 2 hours. Finally tracked down the issue to that line of code.

Also note in this area (a little further down)

if ($this->getConfigData('person_to_person')) {
$charge += 5.50;
} elseif ($this->getConfigData('delivery_confirmation')) {
$charge += 1.85;
}
Hardcoded cost values here scare me. Why would these be hardcoded and not coming from either a setting, or the api calls? If AusPost change this charge, then everyone is hacking code to fix it.

Food for thought anyway. I'm happy I've got this working at least.
