I have a new “UPS WorldShip XML Auto Import” osCommerce contribution if anyone is interested… Its actually a few months old, but I never took the time to blog about it. You can find it here on the osCommerce Addons Website… http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5519.
This contribution allows you to process your UPS Worldship orders with the click of a link. The links are located in the order’s details page.
Your are required to have: UPS Worldship software that can be ordered free here: http://www.ups.com/orderworldship?loc=en_US, an UPS account to order and use the UPS Worldship software, and a daily UPS pick-up required for use of the software.
Also, you must have UPS Worldship running, specifically… you must have their “XML Auto Import” running. Instructions straight from UPS: http://ups.com/media/en/XML_Technical_Support_Guide_Final.pdf
My future plans for this contribution are:
- Make it so the User data is entered/configurable thru the osCommerce back admin.
- It would be nice if tracking number could be read from UPS’s AUTO XML IMPORT output file and inputted in order comment and customer notified.
- Some of the options are still hard coded into this contribution… ie/ number of packages and anything I haven’t noticed.
