This module allows Zen Cart store owners to quickly and easily offer FedEx real-time rate quotes to their customers using the FedEx Web Services API. The module provides quotes for all FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Express Freight services. Store admins can choose among a list of services, add zones, and choose whether or not to include a handling fee with the returned rate.
The FedEx Web Services API has officially replaced the FedEx Shipping Manager API (Direct Connect) as of June 2011. Anyone using the old API will no longer be able to provide FedEx rate quotes to their customers. Unlike its predecessor, FedEx Shipping, this module does not use separate files for Ground and Express but displays the rates in high to low order beginning with FedEx Express and ending with FedEx Ground. For residential deliveries (orders that do not include a company name), the FedEx Ground rate is returned with the added residential handling fee or FedEx Home Delivery rate.
