Solidus + EasyPost
This is an extension to integrate Easy Post into Spree. Due to how it works, you will not be able to use any other extension than this for shipping methods. Your own shipping methods will not work, either. But the good thing is that you won't have to worry about that, because Easy Post handles it all for you.
You will need to sign up for an account to use this extension.
This goes in your
This goes in your terminal:
rake railties:install:migrations rake db:migrate
This goes into a new file called
EasyPost.api_key = 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
This extension hijacks
Spree::Stock::Estimator#shipping_rates to calculate shipping rates for your orders. This call happens during the checkout process, once the order's address information has been provided.
The extension also adds a callback to the "ship" event on the
Shipment model, telling EasyPost which rate was selected and "buying" that rate. This can be disabled by setting:
# config/initializers/easy_post.rb Spree::EasyPost::configs[:purchase_labels?] = false
This gem will create shipping methods for each type of carrier/service for which it receives a rate from the EasyPost API. These are set to
display_on: back_end by default and must be set to
both before the rate will be visible on the delivery page of the checkout.
