The module has extensive list of advertised features. However, we were able to make them work only partially and through workarounds.
Did not work out of the box. We had to ask developer to re-install. Looking at the screenshots in manuals, it seems like we were not given to download the latest version, developer manually installed the latest one.
The setup was not able to complete out of the box. API User ID / Password were not populated properly via "Get Credentials from CanadaPost" tool. Since the fields are made inactive, we had to manually change the ID/Password pair through Dev tools of the browser to save the correct data in the database.
After the issues with installation and setup the Live Quotes are being retrieved fine. However, the Live Quotes retrieved are based on the combined weight of the products. When you create shipping label for the order, with the same products, the actual cost is based on the dimensions of the box, not the weight. It makes Live Quotes far different from the actual charge. For example, if you have a product that is 70 x 50 x 15 cm that weighs 0.7kg, the Live Quote is based on the weight of 0.7kg while the shipping label will be created based on the dimensional factor of 70 x 50 x 15 cm. This is a serious design flaw resulting in inaccurate shipping charges.
Another major issue is inability to create shipping labels without specifying default/additional/optional parameters. It returns an error, that only developer can understand. We figured out the workaround by always selecting "Do not safe drop" option. It worked for a while. As of now, none of the workarounds work anymore, the shipping labels cannot be created.
Hope, the issues can be fixed in the future versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by masselin Works as promised, incredible online support.
When we first installed the extension, it was simply not showing up. I`ve spent numerous hours trying to figure out why and I gave up and contacted Demac support.
Once we gave them access to our SSH, FTP and Magento backend, they found each problem we had and even explained to us how to fix them ourselves.
First, we were missing the php-soap package, which we installed following Demac's advice..
Afterwards our theme was interferring and they adjusted it for us.
Then, they even updated the plugin to fix our custom Canada Post connexion and now the whole thing works as intended, thanks to Demac.
A 150$ well spent. Our customers can now get live quotes for shipping in Canada.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Retep2009 Hello,
I would like to use Cache Sweep
However the backend part is not showing.
I also used the Demac Core Extension
My new server uses PHP Version 5.2.17. I think that’s the problem?
Can you update?
I would appriciate that very much
