You must sign up for an account with Intershipper in order to use this interface.

of uStorekeeper-Intershipper version!
uStorekeeper requests shipping quote information from Intershipper when the uStorekeeper
order form is accessed. Rates are not generated until a ship-to address is entered by
the customer. After the customer has entered a ship-to address on the uStorekeeper order form, the
shipping choices that will appear to the customer will be
based on the carriers and shipping classes that you have configured, and the least expensive
option will be automatically be chosen for the customer. The customer can then choose a different
carrier or class of service if preferred.
In order to receive valid shipping quotes from Intershipper, you will need to assign a weight
to each product in your uStorekeeper store. You must also define a fixed ship-from location,
along with an "average" box size which is used by Intershipper to calculate shipping quotes.
You can configure the interface to use any of the following carriers: United Parcel Service,
U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, and DHL Worldwide. You may select from 1-4 shipping classes
(Ground, 1st Day, 2nd Day or 3rd Day) to offer to your customers.
We've set up a demo that highlights the built-in order form shipping lookup engine.
The shipping selection rates are based on real-time shipping quotes to the billing
or shipping address that you enter. Enter a real address in order to see the real-time quote
options calculated. If a shipping method is not selected, uStorekeeper will choose
the least expensive shipping option for you.
Play around with the demo and add more items (more weight) to your cart and watch how
the shipping options are recalculated to reflect the increased shipping costs!
Remember: You must enter a real address before the real-time quote options can be calculated.
