Has anyone set-up a yola e-commerce website with shipping tools from Canada easily? I know its possible but it looks like too much work/too hard!

Hello Dana,

Online shipping solutions are very easy. You basically tap into the service API and it is all done for you.

If you are working with a table of charges and the shipping cost depends on weight and a zone then there really isn't a simple fix. You need to create the matrix for the Zones and the shipping weight charges. This is the same everywhere there's a manual calculation of charges.

Some people pick a handful of weights appropriate to their products and create an average price for the charge. It's a situation of slides and roundabouts. Another approach is to build in shipping into the product charge and offer free shipping. Others offer free shipping above a certain weight which is behind the scenes offsetting shipping windfalls with goodwill.

If you want some help working your options and procedures I'm happy to work with you on this.

I have found that Ecwid have already developed a shipping module for shipping in Canada: Canada Post Shipping . Hope this is workable for you.
