Canada Post in ShopSite v12
Beginning with ShopSite version 12, Canadian merchants can now offer their shoppers real-time shipping quotes from Canada Post. The same seamless integration that US merchants already experience with USPS and other shippers is now available with Canada Post.

Prior to ShopSite v12 our Canadian merchants would need to create their own static shipping tables if they used Canada Post. With our integration Canadian merchants now have the latest, most accurate rates as well as other services for their shoppers.
