ShipSync Community: Advanced FedEx Web Services Integration
This extension is really really great, unfortunately, it looks like it ignores currency store (and conversion that should happen) while rendering a rate. The currency is always the default currency of your shipping point, eg USD if you ship from the US, and if you also have a european store view where you bill in EUR, or any other currency, it still displays shipping rates in USD (rates in USD are perfect, I did check the log). Finally, the customer gets a wrong rate, because he's given a rate denominated in his own currency (EUR, here) whereas the conversion was not done anywhere. To conclude, not very compatible, a priori, for a global store, better suited for a single-currency store.
Is there any support for this extension, or some board where we can discuss the matter?
Again, this extension is a must have, so I was just wondering where we can talk about this one somewhere.

Vijay and Jonathan! Thanks soooooooooooooo much for your help! I apologize in every way if i was a nuisance.. but not only were you tolerant of assisting me, but also, you helped me figure this out shipping aspect out. I love this tool! I would HIGHLY recommend this software for anyone who uses FedEx shipping... i even called and found out about this product from FedEx IT... Very easy API integration! Also, there isnt really anything else on the market to use even as good as this!
Thanks Vijay and Jonathan again for your patience and help!
I really really appreciated it!

This is by far the MOST COMPLETE and MOST NEEDED extension for Magento! Lets put aside all the neat tricks this extension does and talk about their customer service. Customer service is an understatement with the creators of this genius program...I felt like I had these guys in my office doing some troubleshooting in front of me; that's how fast their response is!
Just to talk about the extension just a bit...if you're not familiar with FedEx they are switching their old API service to a new service called web services. If you don't have this extension you WON'T be able to use FedEx anymore because Magento doesn't support web services.
These guys at ShipSync know how to do things and do them right! Great job on the extension guys!

This is the best extension for my needs. If you're looking for FedEx integration with your store, this is it! Lots of ongoing development and updates keep this a worthwhile investment. I've already spent $1,000s in FedEx shipping and this extension calculates it all automatically. All I do is open a new order, click Ship with ShipSync, and output my labels! Exactly what I was looking for!!!!

I would have to say that hands down this was the best extension that we have ever purchased. The support on it has been absolutely amazing. The team at Shipsync has offered by far the best module and support that we have seen from any outside vendor, ever. They truly act more as a partner than a vendor when dealing with them! When we did have questions or needed support they replied back within hours if not instantaneously. They went above and beyond helping to provide out of the box solutions and quickly went into action working on mods to address our specific needs. If you are looking for a shipping solution I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend you chose Shipsync and buy their premium support package. I guarantee you will happy you did. These guys are the BEST!!!!

I have to say, that of all the extensions I have purchased this has to be the greatest value. You have been the most proactive in regards to bug fixes, updates and general communication. Thank you for all your hard work.

Let me begin by saying WOW!! Anyone that ships using FedEx needs to have this module I mean WOW!!!... First of all im sure you all know that the FedEx module that comes with Magento uses old API's that FedEx is phasing out and they are now using whats called Weg Intergration AP's or something like that. So I started rewriting the integrated module from magento and after googling I stumbled upon the authors of this module site and he was kind enought to provide instructions how to even rewrite the module to make it work with the new Web Intergration. So after spending time trying to do it myself seen that he already has for sale a made product that JUST BLOWS YOUR MIND AWAY!!!. This module had dimensinal support, it can chose and tells you what type of box to use during shipping, can bill for each additional box, you can ship multiple items and its all done right from the backend of magento. The cooles feature I love about this is the Java intergration of a thermal printer, yes thats right you create a label online and it prints that label on your thermal printer.. Can you all say goodbye to Fedex shipp mangaer cause I sure can.. No more pasting data and tracking numbers back and forth between winds either its all fully automated, Its so easy a trained monkey can do it.
Now about the manual that comes with this package. It is so straight forward on how to install it I have no words for it, it well written and it actually describes what each function does instead of doing the guess work.
The manual does say you need Apache, I'm running my store on NginX and I can confirm it works great with NginX, on CentOS 5.5 and with php5.2. You do need php-soap but if you were able to get php5.2 on your machine getting soap will be a breeze (yum install php-soap) :-)
I did have some trouble getting the thermal printer to work so I wrote an email to the author of this app and I got a response within the hour and I dint even purchase the extended support plan, anyhow by the time he wrote back I already figured it out myself but he pretty much told me same thing I figured out... I have the Zebra Eltron LP2844 printer that is made by UPS or branded to UPS, now UPS uses their own driver, you cannot use UPS driver with this extension you need to get the generic Zebra driver from their site...
Conclusion to all of this... I saved A LOT OF TIME!!!! A lot, This is a really feature feature rich module... I was hesitant to purchase it at first but Im glad I did oh yes forgot to mention im running magento 1.4.2
DONT BE A FOOL GET THE RIGHT TOOL!!!!! :-)

I purchased this extension looking for an easier way to ship FedEx packages from within Magento.
This extension is great!!
It has saved me time by allowing me to create shipping labels for FedEx without leaving the Magento admin. A must have extension for anyone looking to make shipping easier for their business. The developer has made improvements and is responsive to making his extension current.
This extension has been very easy to install and update, not very complicated. This extension filled a void and has made shipping via FedEx a simpler process.
