Custom shipping routine for Perch Shop App.


I have an existing ecommerce site managed in Perch with a custom cart and checkout process. I would love to switch to Perch Shop, but we are currently looking up FedEx shipping rates using PHP from the Fedex Web Services using the size and weight data we're currently passing it as well as the customer's shipping address.

Would there be a way to insert our code into the checkout process and override Perch Shop's Shipping calculations?

Thanks, Monty

There's not a way to do that currently, no.

What would you need?

I would need to intercept the process, preform the shipping lookup with FedEx, and deliver the shipping amount and type back to perch.

So if there was a callback you could register to calculate shipping via some custom method, that would work?

Yes, I think it would
