Demac Media Canada Post Integration for Magento

Last week at our Montreal eCommerce Forum we officially launched the Demac Media Canada Post Integration for Magento!

This extension takes complete advantage of all Canada Post solutions, and is perfect for merchants looking to provide better shipping alternatives for their customers while having more control in their backend system. This extension not only offers public and custom rating services, it also has support for the complete shipping flow. From rate requests, to shipping label printing, manifest generation/printing, shipment cancellations, all the way to detailed package tracking, this extension has it all. Furthermore, it’s not necessary to create an account on Canada Post, you can do it all from the Magento backend! Our Canada Post Integration fully supports delivery to post offices, integration with Google maps, full tracking details and multi-shipping integration. If you truly want to take advantage of what Canada Post has to offer, this is the extension for you.

Here’s a video highlighting the benefits of Magento, Canada Post, and the Integration Demac Media developed to provide the perfect end-to-end eCommerce solution. The video also features one of our clients, Ardene, as a case study. Ardene is currently taking advantage of the Canada Post integration on their Magento Enterprise site: www.ardene.com.
