Prestashop Module: Canada Post Rates and Labels

This module allows you to display real-time rates to customers and generate/print Canada Post shipping labels from your Prestashop back-office in as little as one click.

No more copy and pasting addresses or waiting in line at the post office, cut back the hours required to fulfill your orders.

  • Display real-time dynamic rates and delivery times from Canada Post to customers.
  • Simply click “Generate Label” and stick it on the box, all customer info is acquired by the module.
  • Automatically fills in the tracking number and updates the order status.
  • Automatically emails the customer with a direct link to their tracking page on canadapost.ca
  • Store all your package sizes in the built-in package manager; the module chooses the best package for each order based on the products ordered.
  • View real-time dynamic rates from Canada Post before you click generate.
  • Look up past shipments by date.
  • Ability to re-print past labels in the event that you lose or damage one.
  • Uses secure Canada Post platform authorization. Similar to “Sign in with Facebook”, you simply sign in with Canada Post.
  • Ability to perform test shipments to check and see if everything is working.
  • You must be a Regular or VentureOne Canada Post customer. Commercial customers with contract agreements will not be able to process shipments and will have to use my Contract Shipments module.
