About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Fontis

Needs better instructions / support Looks like it offers so much but there is no support at all. Better off spending money on a supported extension. Even if there was just a user group / forum to discuss common issues / bugs. Anyway I suggest you move on and don't waste your time with this one. July 22, 2015
Not working Im trying to get this to run on my magento but nothing seems to come up on the front end. I just need help if anyone can to install this on my site and work! July 11, 2015
Not so good I've managed to install and run the plug in on 1.9.1x The problem is that the plug in doesn't support calculating by dimensions; only by weight. Overall it's quite good for a freebee. I had to go and purchase different plug in that has multiple choices e.g. by size, split packages if they're 2 big, select letter, parcel or other etc. From my point of view, it's better to spend 80 aud on good plug and have a better operating shop... June 17, 2015
Working with some tweak I use that only for postcode autocomplete, the database postcode data didn't get imported automatically and need to import /sql/australia_setup/postcodes.csv manually. Other than that it works fine in my Magento 1.8.1 January 29, 2015
Doesn't work with 1.9 Does not install on 1.9, either via manual upload or via Connect Manager. Here's the error I get. :5:{i:0;s:247:"Error in file: "/home/XXX/public_html/mage19/app/code/community/Fontis/Australia/sql/australia_setup/mysql4-upgrade-2.2.1-2.2.2.php" - SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'xxxx_magece19.australia_eparcel' doesn't exist";i:1;s:1026:"#0 /home/xxx/public_html/mage19/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Resource/Setup.php(645): Mage::exception('Mage_Core', 'Error in file: ...') I even imported an old eparcel table from 1.7 (it's an empty table) after seeing this, still no joy. This should be pulled from Magento. Works fine on our 1.7 store, but we need click and send which V2.x does not have. December 7, 2014
Method not show on frontend Hello, I installed this Fontis Australia extension and enable methods to show in frontend shipping method. But it doesn't show in frontend. Please navigate me how can i use this extension November 27, 2014
Brilliant and Solid I would highly recommend it. Development is open source on Github. October 26, 2014
Auspost part non functional This extension may have worked on older versions of Magento but not on anything past 1.8*. I wanted it purely for the Auspost extension and while it says it is set up and has the Auspost API installed it does not actually do anything. The shipping quote returns no value leading to no shipping amount being added to the order. The only response from Fontis is "We don't support free extensions." Well thank you Fontis, I don't support you now either. I was looking at some of your paid extensions but since you care so little about your customers I'll be looking elsewhere. October 2, 2014
Upgrade to version 3.0.0 Trying to update Fontis from vers. 2.5.0 to vers. 3.0.0 I am getting following error: Checking dependencies of packages Starting to download Fontis_Australia-3.0.0.tgz ... ...done: 1,194,690 bytes Installing package community/Fontis_Australia 3.0.0 CONNECT ERROR: Failed to open file C:/wamp/www/magento\downloader\.cache\community\Fontis_Australia-3.0.0\app/code/community/Fontis/Australia/lib/vendor/guzzle/guzzle/tests/Guzzle/Tests/Http/Message/Header/ My magento version is CE 1.9.0.1 August 21, 2014
Doesn't work on 1.8.1 Spent hours trying to get the eparcel quoting set up... and same with the shopping feed functionality. Was sooooo disappointed. Could not get any of the functionality of this module to work in 1.8.1. The only thing that did work was the bank deposit module - which to be honest can be simply recreated through the existing built in Magento bank deposit payment option. Big thumbs down to me.

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.

Answer: 
For some reason they seem to have the calculation setting incorrect and set to (KILO GRAMS) where it should be set to (GRAMS).

A quick fix!

For each product don't use anything below 1.000 grams.

For example: A product may weight 800grams (0.8000) but in most cases this wont show so the shipping methods so use anything above 1.0000.

the extra "0" is calculated as a point of a gram.

Note: Australia Post will ship up to 22kg within Australia and 20kg Internationally.

So the maximum per shipping for this to work is 22.0000.

I hope this helps.

Also, when using the connect manager to install this you will find if using a different theme that some fontis folders will not get added to your theme skin folder.

As Magento has a fall back for this it would not hurt to have these files in the theme folder to perhaps save Magento looking elsewhere as a fall back.

As you know, it won't show any method on the frontend if the products weight is less than 1kg. 80% of our products are less than 1kg and I can't change it because it's gonna affect ebay calculation.

Is it possible to force it to calculate based on 1kg for all products less than 1kg. Without changing the actual item.

Answer: 
This is the same issue I am having. Why don't they just include an option to calculate weight by grams or kg? The Australia Post API does allow it.
I'm going to have to hack the code to do it as all of my products are in grams and I am not going to update thousands of rows.

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.
