This app is really not so bad except for the fact that small packet international is not an available shipping option as it is on paypal shipping. This means you end up paying $2 more on each small packet. If they could fix this it would be a better shipping option than paypal but until then I use paypal whenever possible.

I'm losing money.
- I contacted the app developer about one situation: the shipping price the app charges my client is different than the price I pay Canada Post. In other words, the client pays me X$for the shipping (it's the price the app gives to the client) but when I print the label, the App charges me usually X + 2$ or X + 3$. So, for each order I throw 2$ at the garbage.
- It's been one week since I contacted the support (with screenshots). No answer yet.

Faster than PayPal shipping labels however there are a few downsides:

- No discounts on expedited parcel rates like there are via PayPal.
- You can't change the value of items for customs, also the value is printed in the currency of the country it's going to but still with a "$" sign regardless of how that country signs their currency. Confusing.
- You can't change the weight of the parcel after the order is placed, meaning if you accidentally overcharged for shipping you can't ship it more cheaply and/or refund the customer who paid excess shipping costs.
-Canada Post labels take up an entire page of 8.5" x 11" paper with the bottom half of the page a "receipt" even though the labels are pdfs that can be easily saved on your computer, making it unnecessary to print them. I would love to be able to use my 4" x 6" label printer for these labels like I do with USPS.

Would love this app if those few things could be tweaked!

This app satisfies its main objective - offering real-time shipping info for the user. However, I found it to be problematic when trying to print shipping labels at times. Overall it's been useful, but we sell rare fossils and minerals - many of which are heavy - and it can be a bit of a pain to have shipping rates slightly off. To my knowledge, it only factors in weight and not the dimensions of the parcel. So, for other stores with heavy items, you might want to be careful...

So I have orders but I can't fill out customs information needed to print out a label. I'm really frustrated with how this app works

The app is actually pretty great. THe problem is that it will override any settings that you may have had in the system.

For example, if you've altered the pricing by province or adjusted the overall rate by %, it will ignore all of that.

I have found that the actual shipping price is almost never what is displayed to the consumer.

I uninstalled it for now. But if there is a fix on the way, you can guarantee I'll be installing it again. At the very least it's a HUGE timesaver. No more copy paste from window to window.

We would love to use this app if it was available for commercial accounts and not just Venture One accounts. Venture One is more expensive than the type of account we have so we won't be switching.
