Information and Features

Get real time shipping rates (domestic & international) from the USPS website.

Generate & print labels directly from the backoffice order page, and automatically send tracking number email.

NEW: Option to generate a USPS shipping label for non-USPS orders

Shipping rates are calculated by weight and dimensions or one of the USPS boxes.

Single Box - Assign one box size which will be used for all products:
Multiple Boxes (Fixed Size) - Define how many products can fit in a box (number), or calculate only by weight.
Multiple Boxes (Product Dimensions) - Define all the box sizes you use for shipping, assign dimensions to your products, and the module will automatically calculate (using an algorithm we developed) how many boxes are needed to fit all the products (always trying to use the smallest / lowest number of packages).

* New * Ability to have free shipping by Product, Category, Manufacturer or Supplier.

You can select which shipping options should be available.

Each shipping method can have its own Free Shipping Limit, Additional Fee, and Insurance (international only).

Display a shipping preview on the product page, which does not require the customer to login.

Smart caching system for maximum speed.

* USPS does not offer the ability to pay for postage when generating a label. Postage must be paid separately, usually upon package dropoff.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) What is the difference between this module, and the USPS module that comes with Prestashop?

 

A) The USPS module that comes with Prestashop (and many other USPS modules for other carts) are very limited when it comes to calculating the boxes that are used for shipping.

They generally offer 2 options:

1) Place all the products in 1 box with a fixed size - This can cause high estimates, as a small product and a large product will share the same box size (which would have to be big)

2) Place each product in its own box - This causes even higher estimates, since using 2 boxes instead of 1 larger box is more expensive.

 

Our module uses an advanced algorithm (developed by our team) to calculate products / boxes.

It lets you specify multiple box sizes that you typically use for shipping, when products are added to the cart, the module automatically calculates how many boxes / which sizes are needed to fit all the products. It will always try to use the fewest boxes and the smallest sizes.

This provides the most accurate rates for your customers.

 

Our module lets the customer see a preview of the shipping rate for each product (no login required), as well as the ability to set a free shipping limit per shipping method and zone.

2013-02-16 James S. The solution for USPS shipping! After trying other sources of modules, these guys are a breath of fresh air and my primary choice for modules now. The module works great and I've had it for over a month now on a live site. Updates and tweaks are well handled. It actually works well with 1.5.3.1 unlike so many others.

I love how the carriers are made through the module. I mostly ship by weight world wide and haven't had any calculation issues. Having the weight or the size calculations is a must have, I like how you can mix the two options. Its very flexible, you can set up a small flat rate box carrier based on size and then set up carriers for just weight. Customers can choose the lower cost or faster method easily. The shipping rate buttons are a big plus, because customers don't have to sign in to see the actual postage cost.

Thanks to Tomer for the help inserting the Shipping Rates button in the cart block too.
2012-11-19 Luc W. fantastic support !! Excellent job implementing the functionality of the USPS module so that the mix of commercial (online) and regular USPS rates is possible. I highly recommend this USPS module. Thank you Tomer.
2011-08-25 megan d. Presto-ChangeO USPS This module added a ton of value to our store. It really works great and Tomer helped me set it up every step of the way!
2011-06-27 Howard K. Great Module! Tomer Rocks! This module was a life saver.. Thanks Tomer! Must have if you're shipping internationally. Great job!
2011-03-31 Nancy L. Works great! I am a newbie, and needed some hand-holding to get this implemented. Tomer was very helpful and the module works great!
2010-12-11 Shane P. This module is ESSENTIAL for shops needing to ship tangible goods abroad! Most of our business is from customer located in foreign countries and UPS and FedEx are just not an economical choice.

In only a few days, this module has reduced customer inquiries for shipping quotes and lets our foreign customers get accurate shipping rates for their locations.

Bravo Presto-ChangeO, another exceptional module!

Best regards,
Shane
