Looking for an OSCommerce developer to implement an OSCommerce shipping module that interfaces with a shipping company using an XML API for its quote requests. This OSCommerce shipping module will take 3-4 parameters (e.g. orig & dest ZIP codes, weight, class, etc.) and return the expected format that OSCommerce expects similar to its UPS or USPS modules in the [url removed, login to view] module.
The documentation for this shipping query interface is posted at: [url removed, login to view] and I extracted the relevant portion that deals with the query below.
An example of a query would be:
[url removed, login to view];OrigZip=29902&DestZip=29073&Weight1=100&Class1=50&returnX=Y
Rate Quote Request API
[url removed, login to view];OrigZip=29902&DestZip=29073&Weight1=100&Class1=50&Acc1=Private-Residence
OrigZip and DestZip are required values and must be 5 digit zip codes
Discount is an optional value. The Discount is the discount percentage to be applied to the quote.
The MinimumFloor is the Minimum Floor charge that applies to the specifc quote you are requesting.
You may enter up to 8 class/weight pairs. Class1..Class8 and Weight1...Weight8
If you wish to have the data returned in xml, append to the query string the following: &returnX=Y
Sample output here and here.
Requests that could not be processed will have a message returned inside an error element tag.
