Q&A

Minimun weight problem

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.
Asked by: treasures2hunt
For version 3 of Fontis with version 1.9.2 of Magento, here is how I fixed it so it uses grams instead of kilograms. In the ~\Fontis\Australia\Model\Shipping\Carrier\AustraliaPost.php change line; $sweight = (int)$request->getPackageWeight(); to be $sweight = (string)($request->getPackageWeight() * 0.001); Then change ~\Fontis\Australia\lib\vendor\fontis\auspost-api-php\src\Auspost\Postage\service.json every weight parameter from "type": "integer" to "type" : "string" This will make it work.

Version?

Hi, I am COMPLETELY new to Magento and im setting up and Australian store using Magento Go. Im really confused as to how this all works - Can i use this extension with Magento Go? Thanks!
Asked by: JenOb
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.

Some time this Shipping method not show

I am using this ext. and i found some time , extension not showing the shipping method, could you plz tell me how i will fix this issue
Asked by: Pramod_Gupta
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.

Magento 2 version

A stripped back version of this plugin is available for Magento 2 from the Fontis site. Are you planning on extending compatibility for this plugin's compatibility, to allow the more useful features like shipping calculation? If so, is there a rough timeline on its development?
Asked by: puffinpunch

I can calculate the Shipping is basis of QTY or total weight?

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?

BugFix for - AusPost - Sorry, no quotes are available for this order at this time

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lots of issues - Had to uninstall Running a higly cusomsied theme and Magento version Magento 1.9.2.3. Database table errors, white screens of death and javascript errors all = an extension that will require custom development to fix and get working. It has lots of features, but this is not free. I am following the github version of this and hopfully some more issues will be fixed by the community over time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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...

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
