A rubygem for accessing the Australia Post Delivery Rate Calculator.

Please note that in order to use this service, you must agree to the Australia Post DRC terms and conditions - I take no responsibility for how you use this library, it is simply a wrapper around the DRC api.


require 'aus_post/drc'

result = AusPost::DRC.calculate(:length => 100, :height => 100, :width => 100,
  :destination => 'XXXX', :pickup => 'YYYY', :country => 'AU', :service_type => :express,
  :weight => 1, :quantity => 1)

The following are optional with the following defaults:

  • :quantity - defaults to 1
  • :service_type - defaults to :standard
  • :country - defaults to 'AU'. As a 2 character country code

The calculator has the following methods:

  • result.charge - charge as a float, nil on error
  • result.days - days as integer, nil on error
  • result.charge_as_string - charge as string, nil on error

With exception-throwing variants:

  • result.charge! - charge as a float, throwing an error otherwise.
  • result.days! - days as integer, throwing an error otherwise.
  • result.charge_as_string! - charge as string, throwing an error otherwise.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  1. Fork the project.
  2. Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  3. Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  4. Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  5. Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
